Since Brandon Roy went out with the injury the Trailblazers have won six of their last eight games. Wesley Matthews, Nicolas Batum and LaMarcus Aldridge have all stepped up since Brandon went out with the injury. If Portland keeps playing like this, it is unlikely that Roy will return anytime soon. There is even talk that Roy is considering, undergoing experimental knee surgery, which may keep him out for a while. This experimental surgery would include having a meniscus transplantation. Average recovery time from this surgery is about 4-6 months for non-professional athletes.
"This surgery could become known as the "Brandon Roy surgery" a la Tommy John because it has never been attempted on an active athlete. Marshall Faulk had the procedure after his playing days were over. Roy is out indefinitely and if this surgery is like Tommy John, it would put him out until at least next season. Fantasy owners will want to monitor this closely going forward" (cbssports.com).
