    Default Brandon Roy to miss 1-2 Months after Knee Surgery

    Uh oh, his history of knee problems is what had some teams scared heading into the draft. Hopefully, this doesn't become a recurring problem.

    Greg Oden's finally looking ready. But the guy who will get him the ball is banged up.
    The Portland Trail Blazers announced on Wednesday that guard Brandon Roy will have arthroscopic surgery on his left knee on Thursday. The operation will repair a tear in the meniscus that was revealed by MRI on Tuesday. Blazers team physician Dr. Don Roberts will perform the procedure at Southwest Washington Regional Surgery Center in Vancouver, Wash., and Roy is expected to be sidelined for between one and two months.
    Oden, the top pick in last year's draft who missed all of the 2007-08 campaign after right knee surgery, worked out for the media on Tuesday.
    The 7-footer from Ohio State showed no signs of problems in two-on-two work with teammates Steve Blake and Channing Frye and former Arkansas star Steven Hill, a 7-footer invited to practice with Portland. Oden isn't allowed to go five-on-five until next month.
    "I'm feeling good," Oden said. "I do not have any pain or soreness in my knee."
    Roy is part of a young nucleus for the up-and-coming Blazers. The 2006-07 Rookie of the Year has averaged 18.1 points, 5.0 assists and 4.6 rebounds over his two years in the league.
    Roy helped the Blazers improve by 11 wins in his rookie year to a 32-50 mark, and even without Oden, Portland jumped up to 41 wins last season.

    Hope you don't mind, but I'm changing the thread title. I figured that when it said Roy that it meant Roy Hibbert

    I'm adding the first name to the title to avoid small heart attacks.

    Too late I already had one- but I think you beat me to it - changing the name

    Hope Brandon is OK, he's one of my favorite young players in the NBA

    So, theoretically, he'll be back for at least part of the pre-season. This is big for Portland. I believe he's the key up there.

    So how many more minutes for Jerryd does this translate into?

    Agreed. As the members of Guns and Roses once said, "every rose has its thorn".

    Ha yeah. I didn't even think of that when I posted it because I always refer to player's by their last names.
