Remember how Brandon Roy was going to be shut down for three games and then come back… well, if the vacation is going well why not extend it?

During a video live-streaming pregame event for the Trail Blazers game Tuesday, team General Manager Rich Cho said Roy was taking another week off (via Blazers Edge).

The Blazers next game is Christmas evening, taking on Golden State on the road. That is followed by a back-to-back against Utah and Denver. Roy will miss at least all those games.

Roy has chronic knee pain that rest may help some, but this is going to be a long-term issue going forward because he has little cartilage left in his knees. Meaning, expect more breaks like this.
