Brandon Roy is going to give the NBA another go. The former Blazers star says his health is fine and confirmed via a friends Twitter account that he wants to return as soon as possible. A return to Portland was not possible : under NBA rules he is not eligible to return there until the 2014-15 season.
“Lord willing, I will play again soon,” Roy wrote in a series of tweets. “Yes, I’m preparing for a comeback. I’m training daily. I’m preparing for a return next year. I appreciate the love. Hopefully I’ll be back on the floor soon. Health is good.”
“Due to the NBA rules I cannot play in Portland until 2014-2015,” Roy tweeted. “I’m looking to return sooner. Thanks for your support. I’m fortunate to have played for such a great fan base. No matter where I play, Portland will always have a special place in my heart.”
