Brandon Roy won't be back for a while longer.
The Minnesota Timberwolves announced on Monday morning that Roy will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his problematic right knee later in the day.
Dr. David Fischer was to perform the surgery in Minneapolis, the team said.
No timetable for Roy's return was announced, although Yahoo! Sports reported Roy will miss "a couple of weeks," citing a source.
Roy, who sat out last season with knee problems, has dealt with soreness in the right knee since a collision in the preseason finale against Milwaukee.
The three-time All-Star hasn't played since Nov. 9. Through five games, he was averaging 5.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 24.4 minutes.
This is the seventh knee arthroscopy Roy has undergone dating to high school, according to The Oregonian.
