Default Re: Don't count Brandon Roy out yet: Looking into meniscus transplant

Oh my goodness, a meniscus transplant

I was at the doctor a couple weeks ago, and there was this picture of a knee, and I thought about BRoy because it showed the meniscus and all that, but the meniscus is in between bones? So they will separate the two and then put a filler in there, then put it back together? Pretty risky if you ask me. Painful just to think about.

I hope something can be done for BRoy, I love his game and his demeanor. He is the type of player the NBA needs.

People are now saying they regret him coming back yada yada, but I can only imagine what people would have said if it came out he could have played, and didnt? The boy would have gotten killed by the fans and the media for being "soft" or not playing for his teammates and all.

But this knee issue would still be around whether BRoy played in the playoffs or not? Its not like the meniscus would have grown back in that time?

The real blame belongs to the Blazers medical staff. They simply cut off that part of the meniscus which was torn, allowing for a faster healing time.

Andrew Bynum had a similar, not the same, but a very similar injury of the meniscus, and when the doctors did their thing after the playoffs, they found they could sew the meniscus back together which was a better procedure for the long term outcome for the player. But the healing time was drastically increased (which is why Drew missed the start of the season).

If you guys wanna bash someone, look at the Blazers medical staff, they could have prevented this from happening. There is a reason Portland is the most injured team over the past 5+ yrs.

Brandon Roy is going into unknown territory with not a lot of hope right now. The Blazers are going to the edge of everything medical science has to offer to find an answer.

I really hope they get that answer. Brandon Roy is a a hall of fame talent, but will he ever be able to show it for 10 more years? I don't believe he will.

The medical staff doesn't get to decide whether they repair a partial tear or just remove it. If the Doctor recommends they remove a part of the meniscus, they Blazers staff would agree. You can't repair every meniscus tear.

If it was the Blazers medical staff, Ander Miller, Wes Matthews, or Aldridge would be injured. You're just focusing on injury prone players.

He should get the transplant.

It's not like sitting out for a year will regrow his meniscus, so if he ever wants to play again, he needs some sort of surgery. Even if he doesn't play again. Bone on bone is really painful I'm sure.

well, he's sort of a guinea pig. Then again, he doesn't have much of a choice. Hopefully, this works out.

For a professional athlete that is entering his prime years it is. Usually the only basketball a player gets to play after a meniscus transplant is a game of horse.

When it comes to any players health - we can only hope for the best , so we are not denied seeing them perform.

I am afraid with all the reports about his condition , not just on one knee , but both that his days are numbered.
Just think of the miles he's put on jumping , cuting etc ... starting as a kid , then high school and college ball to the pro's .. The wear and tear has to be something else..

Any player with issues as Roy has , will never have the lift , or cutting ability as they had , less we speak about quickness.

We can only hope for the best.

Portland needs a break in their storied history as well..

Really doubt people would care years down the line. Can't say the same about what he's actually going through right now because of not sitting out.

I'm really hoping Roy and CP3 don't turn into this era's Penny Hardaway and Grant Hill.

I don't know why they dont just take some meniscus from the ass and put it in a knee, it's Dna compatible and body does not reject it. I guess American doctors are not as smart as Lithuanian doctors.
