NBA: Blazers All-Star Roy has torn meniscus in right knee; status for playoffs uncertain

Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy has a torn meniscus in his right knee and his status for the playoffs is uncertain.

Roy will miss Monday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and Wednesday's regular season finale against Golden State on Wednesday night.

He will require surgery and will be out from four to six weeks. But he said he may try to play with the injury in the playoffs because doctors told him it cannot get worse.

Roy is the Blazers' leading scorer with 21.8 points per game. He injured his knee on Sunday when the Blazers played at the Lakers.

The Blazers have clinched a spot in the playoffs, but their opponent for the first round has yet to be determined.
