Brandon Roy is once again staring retirement in the face after yet another setback with his surgically repaired knee. Roy initially retired from the NBA (Portland Trailblazers) in 2010 citing irreparable knee damage but made a comeback this season with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Having only appeared in five games so far this season and unable to take the court since the 9th of November, the Timberwolves announcement and then swiftly cancellation of a press conference featuring their former All-Star raised suspicion.
With speculation of a retirement announcement in the air, Roy made the following statement to the media.
“The past two days I have been weighing all my options as I try to continue my basketball career,” Roy said. “I have decided to explore additional treatment options and an extensive rehabilitation plan. My goal has been, and continues to be, to return to the basketball court as healthy as possible in order to help our team.”
It seems for now that Roy will continue to pursue his dream and it’s safe to say all NBA fans wish him all the very best of luck.
The curtain may close on Brandon’s NBA career sooner rather than later however, and this time it will be for good. Here’s hoping the 28 year old gets some good news and can showcase his skills again for all hoops fans.
