Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy could return on Saturday vs. Suns

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Brandon Roy could return to the court for the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday when they take on the Phoenix Suns.

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy went through a full practice on Thursday and could return to the court on Saturday to face the Phoenix Suns.

Roy has been out since Nov. 9 and underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee on Nov. 19. He has only played in five games this season, averaging 5.8 points and 4.6 assists. Roy has been slowly rehabbing his knee as he prepares to make his return. He said after Thursday's practice that if things go well on Friday, he could play against the Suns.

Roy retired after the 2010-11 season due to problems with both knees that included bone-on-bone pain. He signed with the Timberwolves on July 31 and was in good form until a collision in a preseason game on Oct. 26 that ultimately led to his arthroscopic surgery. Roy spent five years with the Portland Trail Blazers before retiring and made three All-Star teams as a member of the Blazers.
