"I think we all have a collective sigh of relief..." said Blazers General Manager Kevin Pritchard at the Blazers Practice facility. All-Star Guard Brandon Roy had successful knee surgery and Pritchard says he should be ready to go by the season opener Octoboer 28 against the Lakers in Los Angeles.
Roy had soreness in the knee so the Blazers had an MRI done and determined he needed surgery. Team Dr. Don Roberts performed the surgery and the Blazers say everything went well. Pritchard says Roy will be out 4-8 weeks. "I feel very, very good about where we are right now, " said Pritchard..." we're in great position to have him ready by the regular season."
The Blazers open training camp in two weeks.
