Brandon Roy to have knee surgery, miss playoffs

From Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski, Brandon Roy is done for the year:

Portland’s Brandon Roy will undergo surgery to repair meniscus tear in right knee, Blazers say. He will miss the first-round playoff series.

Team says out for at least Phoenix series, and source close to him says “There’s no way” he’d return this season, even if Blazers advance.

Recovery on Roy’s surgery is typically 4-6 weeks. As badly he wants to try, there’s just no way anyone would let him take such a risk.

All told, this is probably for the best.
