Brandon Roy, who signed a two-year deal with Minnesota in the offseason, will reportedly undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and miss a couple weeks. The guard has a history of knee problems and sat out all of last season trying to heal. Whether he can return to form remains to be seen, but here are some photos of Roy in better times.
