For a brief moment, former Portland Trail Blazers star Brandon Roy nearly called it a career after suffering yet another setback in his rehabilitation from knee surgery last Saturday in an individual workout.
The plan for the Minnesota Timberwolves guard was to make his return to action Feb. 1 against the Los Angles Lakers at Target Center, after having two successful workout days. After that, he would join the team for practices leading up to the game.
Friday’s session went as planned. Saturday’s didn’t.
While performing a move in the first 20 minutes of the workout, he felt something in his right knee that he has felt far too often. He tweaked it, eliminating any possibility of him returning to action before the…

Timberwolves shooting guard Brandon Roy teamed up with AT&T last week to provide the thrill of a lifetime for a group of elementary school students in Blaine.
Though AT&T’s “Win a School Day with Brandon Roy” contest, the three-time All-Star spent Tuesday afternoon at Northpoint Elementary School.

Roy and Crunch played tug of war with the group and put together a…

Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy spoke after practice Thursday for the first time since undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery on Nov. 19.
The surgery, performed by team orthopaedic surgeon Dr. David Fischer at the TRIA Orthopaedic Center in Bloomington, was meant to alleviate pain brought on when Roy bumped knees with a Milwaukee Bucks player in a Oct. 26 preseason game.
“Yeah, that’s the game where it happened,” Roy said. “I didn’t quite know how serious it was, then I think the first couple games of the season I continued to feel it. Then we played five or seven nights, and it didn’t get any better. I think it was that Milwaukee game in the second quarter when I bumped knees and it…
