Brandon Roy Plans to Return from Injury, Get Team to .500

"Our magic number’s still trying to get to a .500 season," Roy said today according to Brian Hendrickson of the Vancouver Columbian. "For me, just continuing to be the leader of this team is important. And I can get treatment and try to do my best to get back. But talking to coach and KP (Kevin Pritchard), if it hurts, no. But if I can play again, then I’m going to try."

According to the Blazers, Roy will miss Portland’s next four games and then be re-evaluated.

"I think I’m at least a full week, maybe two weeks away from playing, just from the way it’s playing now. It’s really stiff," the report continues.

"But, I think I owe it to my team and the fans to try to get to .500 (record)." [HOOPSWORLD]
