Hours after Ken Berger of reported that the Blazers and Brandon Roy were considering shutting down the superstar for the remainder of the season, the Blazers have issued a press release announcing that Roy has been "sidelined indefinitely." The release includes the following quote from Rich Cho:

“Unfortunately, Brandon Roy’s condition has not significantly improved and we’ve decided to hold him out indefinitely,” said Cho. “In the short term, we’re going to proceed with an extended period of rest. Beyond that, we’re looking at all available treatment options to help better determine a course of action.”

So it would appear that the Blazers are at least making moves in the direction of a season-long sit-down for the All-Star. For more on the Blazers' situation without Roy, check out Ben Golliver's comprehensive breakdown on what it would mean for Roy, the Blazers, the fans, and everyone else.

Blazers announce Roy is "sidelined indefinitely"

What a shame. Roy is one of the best all around players in the league. There is no doubt in my mind that the Trailblazers are a cursed organization. The Trailblazers have suffered way too many major injuries to their key players in their history.
