Brandon Roy injury: T-Wolves guard has 'successful' surgery

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy underwent surgery on his right knee and will miss a month.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy underwent surgery Monday on his injured right knee and will miss about one month of action. The surgery was considered a "success," although according to Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune, the Timberwolves did not reveal what the procedure actually did:

Roy played in five games this season before hurting his knee on Nov. 9 against the Indiana Pacers. Roy averaged 5.8 points and 4.6 assists in the five games, shooting just 31.4 percent from the field.

Roy has suffered a litany of knee injuries throughout his career, undergoing numerous surgeries and even being forced to retire shortly before the 2011 NBA season. After Roy announced his retirement, he was amnestied by the Portland Trail Blazers.

Roy worked hard to make a comeback this season, including getting a special platelet-rich plasma procedure done. Several other athletes, including Kobe Bryant, have undergone this procedure in order to keep their knees healthy. The Timberwolves signed Roy this offseason to a two-year deal worth just over $10 million.
