On Sunday night, news broke that Roy will undergo his seventh knee injury of his career and will miss his much-anticipated return to the Rose Garden on Friday when the Minnesota Timberwolves pay a visit (via Jason Quick of The Oregonian).
The surgery could likely end Roy's career in his comeback attempt following retirement after the 2010-11 season with Portland.
The three-time All-Star and former Rookie of the Year played five games for Minnesota, averaging 5.8 points, 4.6 assists and 2.8 rebounds—numbers very un-Roy-like compared to his prime.
It's a sad reminder that athletes' bodies will tell them when it's time to hang it up.
For Roy, it came way too early.
Despite his stint with the Timberwolves, he will forever be a legend among Blazers fans who got to watch him for his five seasons.
Let's reminisce and count down his top 10 moments in Portland.
