Goodbye Portland's post-season

Things just got interesting for the Portland Trailblazers and not in a good way. It's being reported that Brandon Roy has torn meniscus, which isn't good. Unless of course you like it when your star player is cruising around without knee cartilage.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy has a torn meniscus in his right knee and his status for the playoffs is uncertain.

The three-time All-Star is sitting out Monday night's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder and will miss Wednesday's regular season finale against Golden State on Wednesday night.

He will require surgery and will be out from four to six weeks. But he said he may try to play with the injury in the playoffs because doctors told him it cannot get worse.

"I want to play," Roy said. "It's the playoffs. You play 82 games and take a beating just to get to this point."

Roy is the Blazers' leading scorer with 21.5 points per game. He injured his knee on Sunday, 11 minutes into the Blazers' 91-88 victory at the Los Angeles Lakers.

When they say that your injury CANT get any worse, you might have a problem.
