Blazers’ Roy misses 2nd half with sore knee

Brandon Roy is missing the second half of the Portland Trail

Blazers’ game against the Lakers with a sore right knee.

Roy is the Blazers’ leading scorer with 21.8 points per game. He

played 11 minutes in the first half against Los Angeles on Sunday

before the Blazers ruled him out for the rest of the game.

Roy struggled with a sore back in recent days, missing practice

to rest up for the playoffs. Portland has clinched a postseason

berth and could end up in a rematch with the Lakers, who have

clinched the top seed in the Western Conference.
