Minnesota Timberwolves release Brandon Roy

Yesterday, the Minnesota Timberwolves officially released frequently-injured veteran guard Brandon Roy, the team announced. With the release, Roy’s playing career in the NBA has likely come to an end.

Entering the season, Roy was hoping to make a comeback. The Timberwolves gave him an opportunity to do so, signing the veteran to a two-year, $10.4 million contract. Minnesota was hoping Roy could come alongside Ricky Rubio and Kevin Love to help push the team into the playoffs.

This wasn’t the case, as Roy continued to be hampered by knee problems that derailed his once-promising career with the Portland Trailblazers. He ultimately appeared in only five games for the Timberwolves and required surgery after experiencing more pain in his knee.

Roy hasn’t announced his retirement, but considering he’s once again coming off surgery it looks like it has come to an end.
