Brandon Roy, of course, is just one in a long line of key players missing for Minnesota. They have been without Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio since the start of the season and lost JJ Barea, Chase Budinger, Roy and even Nikola Pekovic along the way.
“Yeah, you know, I don’t want to say it, but it’s almost like déjà vu,” says Roy. “We had some really good teams in Portland, especially on paper. We got into the season and started getting some injuries that set us back, but again, like we did there, we made the most of our opportunities, and we were able to continue to go on into the playoffs. We hope that’s the goal here: that guys step up and fill those voids, and we can make a playoff run.”
