The surgery will happen next week but there is no official timetable for his return.
“I’m trying to do the best thing I can to get back on the floor,” said Roy in a released statement. “We’ve been able to get a number of different opinions and it’s something we’ve decided.”
Roy went into more detail in an interview with Blazers Edge, where he said the time off has helped, and he’d start to feel like he could so something, then he’d go practice or workout and the tightness and pain would return.
Roy has missed the last 13 Blazers games, going out indefinitely on Dec. 30, but before that he was not quite right, he was not near the All-Star level he had been at for years. Knee pain slowed him and robbed him of his explosiveness and ability to create his own shot. His shooting percentage dropped from 47.3 percent last year to 39.9 percent this season.
It will be interesting to see what this will do. Previously it was said that his knee was without any meniscus cartilage left so this type of operation was moot. Whether he returns this season at all is still an unknown.
