Brandon Roy is not ready to retire.  Although he did step away from the game for a seasons, retiring because of chronic issues with his knees, Roy came back this year.  He played well, but the knee problems came back.  He's not ready to pull the trigger quite as fast on retirement this time around though. According to an Associated Press report, Roy will seek a more intensive treatment plan and other option rather than retire.  He wants to come back and his goal is to work through the chronic issues.  However, he had another arthroscopic procedure done in November, and his knees don't seem able to hold up to the stress of NBA life."The past two days I have been weighing all my options as I try to continue my basketball career," Roy said. "I have decided to explore additional treatment options and an extensive rehabilitation plan. My goal has been, and continues to be, to return to the basketball court as healthy as possible in order to help our team."Roy was one of the best guards in the league when he came out of college.  He could light up an arena with his shooting and electrify a crowd with his speed.  Unfortunately, the injuries to Roy's knees came fast and they came often.  He retired from the Portland Trail Blazers after the 2010-11 season, but decided to come back this year. Roy has averaged 18.8 points per game and 4.7 assists per game in his career.  With the Trail Blazers, Roy helped lead the team to the playoffs three times.  He is a three-time All-Star.Follow @hoopsinjurynews!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.nbainjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
