Report: Wolves’ Guard Brandon Roy Has Setback On Knee Rehab

This was not the news we wanted to learn about ex-Blazer and current Timberwolves player Brandon Roy. Here’s Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports:



Roy had knee surgery last month. At the time, he was supposed to be out for about a month, although Roy revealed he was one step away from a knee replacement. At 28 years old, he’s had seven knee surgeries dating back to his junior year in high school.

Now that he’s had this setback, it’s Roy’s call on what he will do. Nobody wants to see Roy in a wheelchair, especially at such a young age. But it was courageous for him to give it one more shot. He thought he could still do it. Not trying would’ve been worse for Roy. At some point, though, he has to give it up because his health is way more important than his basketball career.

If Roy doesn’t play anymore after this, at least, he had found his peace. He’s going to go out on his own terms. He wanted to see if he could continue playing. And now reality has set in.

As he told the Oregonian last month:

“When I was 40, would I look back and say ‘You quit because you couldn’t be the best player anymore?’ I didn’t want to get older and regret that,” Roy said. “And the biggest thing I thought about was my kids. I’m going to want to hold them accountable one day, and I don’t want them to say, ‘Well, dad, you stopped playing just because of this… ‘ I want to say, no, I gave it an honest shot. And that’s the reason I felt I had to do this.”

And there’s no shame in retiring now, Brandon. You gave it a shot. Now we all just want to see you healthy.
