T-Wolves' Roy not ready to retire

AP

MINNEAPOLIS — Brandon Roy isn't ready to give up on his NBA career quite yet.

Roy issued a statement on Saturday saying he will seek further treatment on the chronic pain in his knees in hopes of continuing his comeback attempt with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

"The past two days I have been weighing all my options as I try to continue my basketball career," Roy said. "I have decided to explore additional treatment options and an extensive rehabilitation plan. My goal has been, and continues to be, to return to the basketball court as healthy as possible in order to help our team."

The Timberwolves had set up for a possible press conference in the Target Center media room earlier on Saturday, with many speculating it was for a retirement announcement. But it was taken down by late afternoon and the team didn't comment on the reason for it.

"We're hoping for the best and preparing for the worst, meaning I think the team has to prepare as if it may not work, and do what's necessary," Timberwolves president David Kahn said.
