Knee troubles sideline Timberwolves' Brandon Roy

By Jassum Gloster,

Brandon Roy is considered day to day because of a knee injury. Minnesota’s head coach Rick Adelman would not let him play Saturday against the Chicago Bulls. Roy had knee problems last season, which actually caused him to retire for a short period of time.

After a brief retirement, Roy attempted to make a comeback to the NBA. This knee injury is a bit of a setback to his hopeful continuation for this season. According to ESPN, Adelman said he had no idea if Roy would sit out for a few nights or a longer period of time. Adelman also said in the interview that he was aware of the situation that the team might be dealing with returning injuries.

Before Roy’s knees got sore and cause him sit out, he was averaging 5.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, 4.6 assists, and 24.4 minutes in his first five games this season said CBS Sports.

Roy is an addition to this revitalized Timberwolves team. Once he returns, he will have to play a bit wiser. Every time Roy injures his knees, his window of opportunity on this young team is getting smaller.
