Is Brandon Roy’s Hamstring Seriously Injured?

Well, it’s serious enough for Brandon to voice his concerns to the media: “Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy left the Rose Garden on Wednesday night saying he was ‘concerned’ about the condition of his right hamstring, which kept him out of the fourth quarter of the Blazers’ runaway 120-108 victory over Milwaukee. Roy, who missed four games last season because of a strained hamstring, said his injury has the same feel and is in the same spot as last season. ‘I’m concerned,’ Roy said. ‘I don’t want to have to miss two weeks of basketball. That’s the thing tonight – after it got really tight, I told coach, ‘This could be serious.’ Roy said his right hamstring has never really recovered from last season, and was aggravated on Jan. 2 against Golden State. Since then, he has played through the soreness, which turns to tightness at the end of games. On several occasions this month, Roy in the fourth quarter has needed to be stretched by assistant athletic trainer Geoff Clark.”

    If Brandon Roy has had a hamstring injury off and on for the last 2 years. Then nobody has any idea how good this dude is. He has been doin whatever he wants to whoever he wants (no homo) lately

    hamstring injuries don’t go away easy most of the time they are deep and it hurts just a litte bit for a long amount of time untill you force it and you’re hurt for months. oeh thank the portland medical staff for the great work they have done on that team. if even the coach get’s injured something is wrong
