MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Timberwolves guard Brandon Roy did not return to Minnesota's game against Indiana after halftime because of a sore right knee, an ominous sign for the veteran who has battled knee issues for several years.
Roy started and played 15 minutes in the first half on Friday night. He scored six points on 3-for-5 shooting. But when the teams returned to the floor after halftime, Roy wasn't with them. Chase Budinger started the third quarter in his place.
Roy retired from Portland before last season because of chronic knee problems. But he felt rejuvenated this summer after receiving treatment and signed a two-year deal with the Timberwolves. He played at least 21 minutes in each of the first four games for the Wolves this season.
