It is quite possible the NBA has seen the last of the playing days of Brandon Roy.
After coming out of retirement after many devastating knee injuries, the Minnesota Timberwolves signed Roy in the hopes his knee issues were a thing of the past and he was ready to prove his naysayers wrong. Instead, it seems his naysayers and teams who passed on signing him were right - his knee issues were still something to stay away from.
Roy injured his right knee and went under the knife once again to repair his injury.
"Brandon Roy will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery this week, the seventh knee surgery of his career. Roy fatefully banged his knee in the Wolves' final preseason game, which led to ongoing soreness and caused him to miss the past four games. His upcoming surgery is another sad if predictable chapter in his NBA career, and could very well signal the end of his season, if not his career."
Though the injury was considered a "success", you have to wonder if this is it ...
