Report: Brandon Roy out a couple of weeks after surgery

Brandon Roy

This is not a serious surgery, this is a simple scope job… except it’s on Brandon Roy’s troubled knees, so nothing is simple.

Roy is going to undergo his seventh knee surgery this week, this time on his right knee. But it’s not supposed to keep him out that long, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports and the NBC Sports Network.

 

That’s good news, but again this is Roy’s knees. This is the guy who admitted he didn’t really have cartilage in there and who was amnestied by the Portland Trail Blazers — where he was loved in the organization — because he could not play anymore. After a year off and a lot of treatments, experimental and traditional, Roy decided to try a comeback in Minnesota.

But here we are again. Hopefully in a couple weeks he will be able to resume a limited role with the team. That somehow seems optimistic now, but we can hope.

    Hang up, B. Roy. You had a great career.

    Cut the cord, Brandon. Thank the Wolves for giving you one more shot and get out of the way. Staying on will only hurt the team and label you as a guy who didn’t know when to get out. with at least a semblance of grace . . . (see former teammate Oden).

    Now they have an open spot for Greg Oden.
