Lakers forward Ron Artest speculates that Portland's Brandon Roy is playing hurt.

"I've played against Brandon Roy a lot of times. He wasn't himself," Artest said after L.A.'s victory over Portland on Sunday night.

Roy scored eight points on 1-for-6 shooting in 31 minutes against the Lakers.

Artest specifically hinted that Roy might have a back or knee injury.

Wouldn't surprised me. Brandon Roy playing well = A very good Portland Team. Unless Ron Artest seriously had his number last night, the routing the Blazer's got last night was curious.

I feel this Blazers team is always one step from making a push.... the fact this guy seems to like the physio chair more than the hardwood may have an effect on that

He might have been tired. I had read that was their 5th game in 7 nights. That takes a toll on you. Plus they were playing on the second night of a back to back. Maybe he is hurt, but the whole team looked tired. Playing a team like the Lakers after you had played so many games in a short time will make anyone look subpar

Were deep enough to play without Roy. We just need him around December when we should have Greg back, for chemistry purposes.

Whats with the Lakers players and there deep infatuation with Roy seems like they either really want him to be a laker or are all related to him.

I was sayin' the same thing last night. I'm pretty sure the whole Portland team is aware of this as well, they're just keeping it under wraps. I say that because of the shot distribution last night especially. Maybe that was just because of Artest.

On the whole, Roys FG% is down from 47% to 40%, and he's getting to the line less. Through seven games he's posting a PER of 17.1. A pretty big drop off from his 2008-2009 campaign.

The reason he was drafted so late by the twolves, was because many teams were worried about B-rep's knees. Because of his paper mache body, he was going to be a glue player who looked pretty but was not meant to lead a team. And those fears are finally coming into fruition. B-rep can do all the sidestep, spin, lateral sweeps, double pumps, rollie pollies, jumpin' jak attacks, sprinkler dance moves he wants but those knees will forever be his bane of existance. His rasion d'etre seems to be late game heroics, so here's how Sexy Nate "Make-A-me wanna masturbasketball" McMillan could utilize him:

Let Subway Bayless start at the SG position and Dr. Dre Miller get the starting pg he always wanted (besides him and B-Repp dont mesh well, both need ball to be effective and sexy).

Pg- Miller
sg- Bayless
sf - frenchie
pf- david aldridge
c- Marco Candy

Let B-rep come and play 3-4 last minutes of 1st quarter, and then minutes increase as game progresses. 2nd quarter plays first 1:30 minutes, then last 3-4 minutes. 3rd quarter plays 1st 1:30 minutes, then last 5 minutes. then plays entire 4th quarter because b-rep knows its captain crunch time.

He'll be the best bench player since John Havoc. Havoc stole the ball! will turn into B-rep wins the championship!!!

SUCCESS. CHAMPIONSHIP. MAYOR OF PORTLAND? only time will tell.

No, he is still #1 SG. You just cant have Bayliss starting over him. That is asking for a trade request. NBA ballers have huge pride (or egos, see what you will), if you havent already noticed.

B-repasourus is a team player though (playing injured says a bunch). If he doesn;t realize it now he will eventually realize (probably after needing a season ending surgery or something) that he has a body only Bruce Vilanch and my grandfather (though i am a little jealous of the tail he gets at his senior home) would be envious of. He is a bench player with mocha almond fudge ice cream-like talent, and blazers need to take care of him better. Him, andy bynum, yao mang, trevor mcgracy all need to give Brep a phone call and give him some truthiness.

p.s. if you are Blazers, you must ask yourself whats better: Greg Odom and B-Rep being utilized as starters for half a season, leaving the team discombobulated and stolen identity when they are injured. Or getting 4,000 quality minutes from the both of them throughout the entire season and perhaps consider increasing minutes to 30s in playoffs. PLus when they get injured, blow wont be as hard since they play half the game only. who the hells the blazers athletics trainer anyway? Cal Ripken jr?! hes shattering that team a part! and it breaks my heart!

Seriously, I dont know what NBA you been watching. Roy is a top 5 SG when healthy. So you say when healthy, have him be the 6th man. Nooo, the Blazers wont do much like that. Then you have an injured 6th man. A guy of his talents needs to be on the court as much as possible, not riding the bench.

First of all, Joe Johnson is ranked 6th in PER...on his own team! Through seven games, he has the eighth highest WS/48 minutes, and he's fourth in total win-shares even though he plays more minutes than anybody else on the team!


Second, Have you watched the Hawks in the playoffs over the past three seasons? When the team needs him the most, the guy disappears. Last post season Joe Johnson posted a PER of 14.5 on a TS% of 45%. The 2008-2009 post season? Johnson posted a PER of 12.5 on a TS of 47%. During that very same post season, Brandon Roy posted a PER of 25.9 on a TS of 56%.

Advance stats say Roy over Johnson by a wide margin. Manu has a better argument against Roy than JJ does.

What? 9 ppg on 41% FG shooting isn't really any reason for Roy to be concerned about. Lets not pretend that Matthews or Fernandez are on the same level as Roy. Rudy will never be on his level and Matthews probably won't either (it will take years, if ever).

Not sure if its been posted but it seems like Roy is not 100% and the blazers may start limiting his minutes.:


Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy said Tuesday that he will have to reduce his playing time, the result of several injuries, The Oregonian reported.

"Does it concern me? Yeah," Roy told The Oregonian following Tuesday's shootaround. "I would love to play more minutes and have a much better body, but it's just not the case, so I have to try and make the most of what it is. I had a phone call yesterday and in talking to a few people, it is somewhat of a reality check. This is what it is, and now you have to make the most of it."

Coach Nate McMillan told The Oregonian he will try to limit Roy's minutes, but noted that an injury to forward Rudy Fernandez led to increased time for Roy.

Roy said the past week was especially tough on him because the Blazers played five games in seven nights, including three on the road.

"I have to try and preserve as much as I can," Roy told the Oregonian. "The biggest thing is if we can limit the minutes, I can be more explosive instead of trying to run along for 40 minutes. That's maybe just too much time."

Artest was right:


Roy wound up revealing to The Oregonian on Tuesday night that he has had his left knee drained twice already this season and will be consulting a specialist in Los Angeles on Wednesday in search of an answer.
