Heartbreak City: Brandon Roy to retire due to a knee injury

USA TODAY – Portland guard Brandon Roy will take a medical retirement according to a tweet from ESPN’s Chris Broussard. 

Update: This tweet came from Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo: Portland’s Brandon Roy has been diagnosed with a “career-ending (knee) injury,” league source confirms to Y! Sports. “He’s done.” 

The announcement could come as early today from the former Rookie of the Year. Roy, who has been battled degenerative knees and had multiple surgeries, has been in the league since 2006 and averages 19 points, 4.7 assists and 4.3 rebounds

This has got to be some of the saddest news I have heard all day. When healthy Brandon Roy was one of the best guards in the game, and today he will be announcing his retirement due to his knee injury.

Why couldn’t this happen to Brian Scalabrine? Just heartbreaking.
