Blazers, Roy Consider Ending His Season
The Trail Blazers continue to discuss the possibility of shutting down Brandon Roy for the remainder of the season, two sources told Ken Berger of CBS Sports.
Portland issued a press release on Thursday announcing that Roy would be out indefinitely.
He has missed the team's last seven games and their .500 record has come into play with the decision.
Roy said Thursday that surgery was under consideration and confirmed that sitting out the rest of the season was a possibility.
"It would not surprise me to see him try to play again," one of the sources familiar with the team's strategy said.
"It would not surprise me to see him set a date when he wants to try to play. And it would not surprise me if he doesn't play again this season. ... At this point, anything is a possibility. The doctors and Brandon are ultimately going to make that decision."
