5 Realistic Expectations for Brandon Roy's Comeback with Minnesota Timberwolves

He's baaaaaaaaack!

Or, rather, Brandon Roy will be once the 2012-13 NBA season gets underway. The three-time All-Star signed a two-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves this summer, officially signaling the end of his brief retirement.

One into which he may or may not have been forced by the Portland Trail Blazers for PR purposes.

Conspiracy theories aside, it'll be a joy to have Roy back in the league, assuming his troublesome knees have recovered sufficiently. He was one of the league's brightest stars just two years ago, a 20-point per game scorer who was just entering his prime and appeared well-equipped to challenge Kobe Bryant and Dwyane Wade's supremacy at shooting guard.

Nobody should expect Roy to do as much during his comeback, even as the careers of Kobe and D-Wade begin to wane. As good as Roy may feel right now, there's no telling how his body will hold up amidst the grind of the NBA between traveling, practicing and playing in games.

That being said, the T-Wolves can anticipate Roy hitting these five marks that, barring a catastrophic turn of events, should be well within his reach.
