Wolves' Brandon Roy says he had another setback, still wants to play

by The Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy has had a setback with his surgically repaired right knee, casting further doubt on his chances of resuming a career derailed by knee problems.

Roy, 28, gave an update Thursday on his recovery from arthroscopic surgery in December. He says he was feeling close to trying to play in a game for the first time this season, but felt more pain last Saturday and had to slow things down.

The former Portland Trail Blazers All-Star retired before last season because of chronic knee issues. After feeling better this summer, Roy signed with the Timberwolves to start a comeback.

Roy says his latest setback has been discouraging. But he remains hopeful that he will play this season. He says there is no timetable for his first game.
