No Meniscus Left in Brandon Roy’s Knees

Gotta feel sorry for Roy, who says he will keep playing through the pain until he gets microfracture surgery. From the Oregonian: “There’s no meniscus left to operate on in Roy’s left knee. ‘Nah. None. Not in my right, either,’ Roy said Friday. The reason Roy’s knee has been swelling up regularly, to the point where it has already been drained twice by Blazers‘ doctor Don Roberts this season, is because there is no cartilage to absorb the pounding associated with running and jumping. ‘The problem is bone-on-bone there,’ Roy said. ‘Dr. Roberts calls it ‘arthritic knee.’ It’s just something I’m going to have to deal with for the rest of my career.'”
