NBA: Blazers G Roy has surgery, out 1-2 weeks

Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy had arthroscopic surgery on his right knee and will miss one to two weeks.

Roy has already been ruled out of Portland's first-round series against the Phoenix Suns, which starts on Sunday. The team is leaving open the possibility of his return should the Blazers advance.

The three-time All-Star leads Portland with an average of 21.5 points per game. He injured his knee last weekend in the first half of a game against the Los Angeles Lakers.

Roy will not travel with the team for the first two playoff games in Phoenix.
