Roy’s injury-plagued season took another turn for the worse, as the Blazers have elected to shut him down for the foreseeable future. The Oregonian has the details: “Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy will be sidelined indefinitely because of soreness in both knees, general manager Rich Cho said. ‘I can tell you it will most likely be for an extended period,’ Cho said. Cho said the team has discussed shutting down Roy for the season, but they are not ready to go that route yet. ‘We’ve talked about (ending his season) and it’s a possibility, but we want to explore a couple of other things first,’ Cho said. Cho said the team is still in the information-gathering stages of those other options, but he hopes to have more answers and a direction by next week.”
