    Brandon Roy

    David Khan may have been relieved of his GM position with the Timberwolves, but the team is still cleaning up after his mistakes. Today, the team officially announced that they have waived veteran guard Brandon Roy, likely ending his career in the process: “We wish Brandon and his family all the best in the future,”…

  3. Timberwolves owner says he hasn’t decided if GM Kahn will be back

    Apr 15, 2013, 11:01 AM EDT

    davidkahn

    We have taken our fair share of shots at Timberwolves’ GM David Kahn over the years, and he made some bad gambles this year (Brandon Roy), but the disappointment of this season in Minnesota is not on him — injuries to Ricky Rubio (miss half of season after ACL), Kevin Love (broke his hand twice)…

  4. Brandon Roy hopes to play in one more game this season

    Apr 10, 2013, 1:17 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    One more game. One more time on the court. Brandon Roy — the former All-Star whose career has fallen apart because of knee issues — played the first five games of the season for the Timberwolves in a comeback attempt, but those troublesome knees have had him sidelined ever since. Now he wants back on…

    Apr 1, 2013, 11:20 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy played in the first five games of the season for the Timberwolves, but since then the knee issues that forced his retirement a couple seasons ago have returned and kept him on the sidelines. It’s been part of an injury-plagued season in Minnesota. But Roy wants to get back on the court for…

  8. Adelman admits what we all know: He doesn’t expect Brandon Roy back

    Feb 21, 2013, 10:24 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    I was rooting for Brandon Roy to make it work. I was hoping he could come back, play in a limited role and still get to compete. It was clear his knees were not going to allow him to be Brandon Roy, three-time All-Star again, but I was rooting for his comeback. But he has…

  9. Trade rumor roundup: Lots of talk Tuesday, no action

    Feb 20, 2013, 2:10 AM EDT

    Josh Smith

    We warned you this could be a slow trade deadline — with the new CBA kicking in fully next summer teams are concerned about both the more regressive tax and the repeater taxes for going over the luxury tax line. Meaning teams that might normally take on more salary simply are hesitant now. Here is…

  10. Report: Minnesota has discussed buyout of Brandon Roy

    Feb 8, 2013, 9:58 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy’s comeback in Minnesota has seen more setbacks than successes. He has played in just five games for the Timberwolves and hasn’t stepped on the court since Nov. 9. Roy hasn’t given up on a comeback, but Minnesota has started to take the logical step of buying him out, reports Darren Wolfson at ESPN…

  11. Agent says Celtics knew Jared Sullinger would need surgery

    Feb 4, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Italy Celtics  EA7 Emporio Armani Basketball

    This shouldn’t be a surprise. Jared Sullinger — who if he had come out a year before had been talked about as a possible Top-5 pick — fell all the way down the draft board to the Celtics at No. 21 because teams had medical concerns. Which was fine with Boston, they grabbed him and…

  12. Brandon Roy admits he’s “at a crossroad in my career”

    Feb 4, 2013, 1:14 AM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Brandon Roy had another setback in his attempted comeback, his attempt to make one more go at the NBA despite unforgiving, chronically bad knees. He’s not going to be back before the All-Star Game, if ever. Roy understands where he is at. He spoke with Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com and was honest about the moment…

    Boston could not really take another punch to the gut, and they just got one. Rookie and crowd favorite Jared Sullinger is out for the rest of the season with his back injury, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo sports and the NBC Sports Network. He will undergo surgery on his back, confirms A. Sherrod Blakely…

  14. Brandon Roy has another knee setback, still hopes to play this season

    Jan 31, 2013, 4:19 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Ugh. Brandon Roy’s attempted comeback from knee problems with the Minnesota Timberwolves lasted all of five games before he needed another knee surgery. Recovery from said surgery has not gone quickly or smoothly but the former All-Star guard isn’t ready to give up on his dream of returning to the NBA. Then today comes this…

  15. Rubio wants Minnesota to stop using rash of injuries as excuse

    Minnesota Timberwolves guard Rubio is defended by L.A. Clippers' Crawford and Griffin during the second half of their NBA basketball game in Minneapolis

    Injury-ravaged Minnesota looked across the court and saw the Los Angeles Clippers — a team without MVP candidate Chris Paul due to injury. But without him the Clippers this week are 3-0 with road wins against Memphis, Houston before coming to Minnesota. The Clippers just steamrolled the Timberwolves Thursday and made Minnesota’s complaining about injuries…

  16. Minnesota signs Mickael Gelabale to help depleted front line

    Jan 17, 2013, 11:05 PM EDT

    BASKET-EURL-CAJA LABORAL-CEDEVITA-ZAGREB

    Minnesota needs some depth along the front line — Kevin Love had hand surgery this week and is out at least two more months, and also out injured are Chase Budinger, Brandon Roy, Josh Howard and Malcolm Lee. So Minnesota reached overseas and signed French national Mickael Gelabale, reports the Associated Press. He is expected…

  17. Brandon Roy issues statement regarding his future

    Dec 29, 2012, 8:16 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    Earlier today, it was reported that Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy was considering retirement due to multiple setbacks with his troublesome knees. Roy was able to play in just five games this season before he was forced to undergo knee surgery. Roy has more medical issues than you can count, and the post-surgery setbacks were thought to…

  18. Brandon Roy has setback with knees, not playing Saturday or soon

    Dec 29, 2012, 1:09 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    I just feel bad for Brandon Roy at this point. His recovery from his latest knee surgery (number seven, but who is counting?) progressed to the point he had planed to practice Friday and if there were no setbacks suit up for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday. There were setbacks, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo…

  19. Brandon Roy says he could return to Minnesota Saturday

    Dec 27, 2012, 4:33 PM EDT

    Brandon Roy

    We’re not sure how long it will last, but Brandon Roy is close to making his return to the Timberwolves following rehab from the seventh knee surgery of his career. It could happen this weekend, reports Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune. BRoy says he could play some Saturday if he comes through tomorrow’s back-to-back…

    It may be a while before we know who will be the next coach for the Brooklyn Nets in the wake of Avery Johnson’s sudden firing on Thursday. As in 2013. Sam Amick of USA Today reports the Nets don’t plan to really jump start the coaching search until after the first of the year.…

  21. Three Stars of the Night: All you need is Love

    Dec 21, 2012, 3:01 AM EDT

    Kevin Love

    So the Mayans had it wrong, and The Beatles had it right. To end the Thunder’s winning streak, all the Wolves needed was Love (of the Kevin variety) and maybe some bruising play from Nikola Pekovic, some serious playmaking from Alexey Shved, and a pinch of J.J. Barea. Having Russell Westbrook join Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely…

  22. Minnesota could lose Malcolm Lee for season to microfracture surgery

    Dec 20, 2012, 8:45 PM EDT

    Malcolm Lee

    Minnesota thought they had lost Michael Lee for a while, but a while may be the end of the season due to the dreaded microfracture surgery. Lee had been out indefinitely with a chrondal injury in his right knee (that involves the ligaments that cover each end of the bone in the knee) but Jerry…

  23. Timberwolves release Josh Howard due to knee injury

    Dec 20, 2012, 6:49 PM EDT

    Josh Howard

    Oh, the basketball gods can be cruel with their irony. Minnesota sighed Josh Howard in mid-November because they were shorthanded with injuries (Kevin Love’s hand, Ricky Rubio’s knee, Chase Budinger’s knee, Brandon Roy’s knees, J.J. Barea’s foot, and Nikola Pekovic’s ankle. But just as they started to get those guys back, Howard suffered a torn…

  24. Ricky Rubio to make season debut Saturday for Timberwolves

    Dec 15, 2012, 1:08 PM EDT

    Ricky Rubio

    Ricky Rubio will make his season debut Saturday night when the Timberwolves host the Mavericks, the team announced via official release. Rubio tore both his ACL and LCL last March, and hasn’t played in a game since. “I’m excited to get back on the floor with my teammates and play in front of the best…

  25. Timberwolves’ Malcolm Lee out indefinitely with knee injury

    Dec 14, 2012, 3:46 PM EDT

    Malcolm Lee

    Just as Minnesota is going to get Ricky Rubio back, they are going to lose another young guard for a while. Malcolm Lee suffered a chrondal injury in his right knee during Wednesday night’s game against the Nuggets and will be out indefinitely, the team announced. A chrondal injury involves the ligaments that cover each…
