Will he or won't he be able to return?  That is the question that everyone asks about Brandon Roy, including himself.  The Minnesota Timberwolves guard is trying to recover from yet another knee surgery, but it will be an uphill battle.  He understands this may be his last shot.  If he can recover and play again, great.  If he can't, he may be done for good.Roy suffered a setback during practice that caused him to second guess his desire to come back at all says Chris Haynes of CSN Northwest.  When he felt that familiar pop in his knee, he wanted to give up.  And no one would blame him.  But Roy is going to continue working and try to come back this year.  He will make a decision on his future after this season.“I look at it like this has got to be the last season,” he said. “I don’t have any regrets because I know I tried to give it another season. So me saying this has to be the last season, it’s not as difficult as it was last year. I tried. I gave it that last effort and it’s time to move on. I’m at that range to where I’m at peace with things.”Roy has already had numerous surgeries on his knee and has been diagnosed with Grade IV arthritis.  His playing career will be limited regardless, but he's not quite ready to call it quits.  Roy had briefly retired after numerous injuries with the Portland Trail Blazers, but he made his return this season with the Timberwolves.In his limited action this year, Roy has averaged 5.8 points per game and 4.6 assists per game.  In his career, he has averaged 18.8 points and 4.7 assists per game.    Follow @hoopsinjurynews

Video: Rubio fakes out cameraman with dribbling display

Wolves' Kirilenko leaves game with quad strain

MINNEAPOLIS Andrei Kirilenko left the Timberwolves game with a right quad strain at the end of the second quarter. At the time of his exit, Kirilenko had two points on four shot attempts. Mickael Gelabale started the third quarter in his place. Kirilenko's return is questionable. If Kirilenko does not return, that will reduce the Wolves' bench to six players. Monday marked...

Confidence makes all the difference for Rubio

MINNEAPOLIS The Ricky Rubio caricature is a flawed one. You know what I'm talking about, the smiling cherub perched on the bench, the sighing prince who waxes poetic about his teammates, and basketball, and anything else in his sunny domain. That Ricky Rubio, the one who sometimes feels like he's not quite of this world, too happy, too earnest, incapable of lying or misleading...

Poor rebounding usually leads to a loss

MINNEAPOLIS A few weeks ago, ignorance might have been bliss. A few weeks ago, there was just Lazar Hayward on a 10-day contract, not two downright serviceable players in Mickael Gelabale and Chris Johnson. There was no Nikola Pekovic, no Alexey Shved, and Ricky Rubio was even further from form. Under those circumstances, breaking down losses is best left to coaches, best not poked...

The Timberwolves Paid Homage To The Super Bowl Blackout Last Night

The 35-minute blackout during Super Bowl XLVII was the talk of the town (and by “town”, we mean America) Sunday, so if you’re in a pro sports team’s marketing department, why not go with the latest trend in arena/stadium lighting? Some genius in the Minnesota Timberwolves organization did exactly that, scheduling a blackout between the first and second quarter of their game...

Timberwolves reverse scoring trend in rout of Hornets

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves proved with Saturday's 115-86 runaway victory over New Orleans that the best thing about the NBA -- other than all that fame and fortune, of course -- is there's indeed always another game ahead in which to redeem yourself. One night after nearly getting lapped by the Los Angeles Lakers in the first half, the Wolves doubled up the...

Wolves Tuesday: Kirelinko questionable

MINNEAPOLIS After straining his right quad at the end of the second quarter of Monday's loss to Portland, Timberwolves small forward Andrei Kirilenko is questionable for Wednesday's game against the Spurs. If he were to miss the game, it would be just his fifth missed game this season; he sat for four in late November and early December with back spasms. In other Kirilenko...
