The Oregonian spoke with the consulting surgeon on Roy'smost recent surgery. And the outlook is not good.

The "consulting surgeon" whispers that he believes the best-case strategy for handling Roy is this: A) Limit Roy's practice reps to almost nothing; B) Play him off the bench in 65-75 or so games a season, choosing rest in key spots; C) pray. Surgeon suspects the Blazers might get 1-2 years out of Roy employing this strategy. Right now, I think they'd take that, and hope for the best. Roy is a fierce competitor and I won't count him out.

This would be pretty sad if it's true. He had a ton of game before all of this with his knees. Do you think he can prove this doctor wrong? I doubt he can be the same player.

if my doctor included prayer as part of any medical strategy, I'd find a new doctor.

I was thinking this guy was Portlands star for years to come. Now I guess they have to look to LA for that role.

Is his career really that over? Will he be out of the league in 3 years? That would be crazy...
