“Unfortunately, Brandon Roy’s condition has not significantly improved and we’ve decided to hold him out indefinitely,” said GM Rich Cho. “In the short term, we’re going to proceed with an extended period of rest. Beyond that, we’re looking at all available treatment options to help better determine a course of action.”
Roy has missed nine games this season and is averaging 16.6 points per game in the games that he doesn’t miss due to injury. Portland is currently clinging to their playoff lives at this point with a 17-16 record and two feet firmly planted in the No. 8 seed.
