Timberwolves Training Camp: Brandon Roy feels 'pretty good'

Brandon Roy was back in an NBA training camp for the first time in two years on Tuesday, and he said that his knees feel "pretty good," according to Ray Richardson of the Pioneer Press.

"There's a bunch of different bridges I've been crossing, and this was another one," said Roy ... "We went over a lot of defensive stuff, and that was a question mark for me because I hadn't done it in awhile. Overall, it was a good day for me."

Timberwolves head coach Rick Adelman held Roy out of the last part of practice as a precaution. He said that the staff will be closely monitoring Roy's health to make sure they don't push him too hard.

Roy retired from the Portland Trailblazers before the 2010-2011 season due to a degenerative knee condition. However, after receiving plasma therapy on his knees, he felt strong enough to make a comeback. He signed with the Timberwolves this past offseason.
