According to Jason Quick of The Oregonian, Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy will get surgery on his right knee.  With the surgery in place, he will not be able to play against his former team in Portland. This particular procedure is known as arthroscopic knee surgery and Brandon Roy has gone through this drill several times.  The Oregonian points out that this will be B-Roy’s 7th arthroscopic procedure since he was in high school in the Seattle area.  This really is saddening because he was forced to retire due to his bad knees.  The Portland Trail Blazers would end up using the amnesty clause on Roy. A year later, or this past summer 2012, he announced his knees were good to go and was set for a comeback.  Roy showed interest in many teams and vice versa and he would end up signing with the Minnesota Timberwolves.  The contract was a two-year deal worth $5.4 million with the second year not being guaranteed.  Brandon Roy remains optimistic and said, I wouldn’t be disappointed either way.  If it ends in three weeks, it ends.  It’s over.  I’m totally satisfied with what I’ve done.  I know the sacrifice and the effort that I put into coming back.  It took a lot of discipline to get where I am.  That’s all I care about; how hard I’ve worked. Truly saddening to see his knees plague his career.  A young basketball player with a lot of heart and talent that fit into the image of a true professional basketball player on and off the court.
