After winning an NBA best 13-straight games in the month of December....the Blazers have reversed course. They've lost 7 of their last 8...and 11 of their last 15. And today comes news that their "do it all" guard Brandon Roy will be out for at least the next 2 games. Here's the release from the Blazers today:
Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy did not accompany the team to Los Angeles, and will sit out Tuesday's game at the L.A. Lakers and Wednesday's game at the L.A. Clippers with a right ankle sprain.
The injury, which originally occurred Feb. 13 at Dallas, was aggravated during Sunday's game vs. Boston. Roy left the Celtics game in the third quarter and did not return.
He is listed as day-to-day for Friday's home game vs. the Lakers.
With Roy out...the Blazers will go with a starting lineup of Przybilla, Aldridge, Outlaw, Webster, and Blake. That's what we hear for Tuesday's game with the Lakers... and probably Wednesday's too vs. the Clippers. Let's hope they find lightning in a bottle...somehow, someway.
