Brandon Roy: Knee Holding Up Well

Rotowire.com
Update: Roy started at shooting guard and scored six points in 26 minutes in Wednesday's preseason win over Detroit. After the game, head coach Rick Adelman said Roy is playing at "90 percent" after coming back from chronic knee issues, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Recommendation: Roy missed the 2011-12 season when he decided to retire with chronic knee issues due to a lack of cartilage between the bones in each of his knees, but he decided to return this season. All signs have been positive during the preseason as he's played in back-to-back games and there's been no reports of unexpected soreness in his knees. The T-Wolves may try to manage his minutes during the regular season to reduce the wear on his knees, but their plans are not clear. They could keep him from playing back-to-back games, for example.
