The Oregonian has published an update on Brandon Roy's prognosis here.
In brief: The good news is that the heel looks better than it did at the time of his original tests and he will be able to take off the boot. The bad news is he won't be making this six game road trip with the team. The good news is he'll be trying to get back into shape while the team is gone and he hopes to rejoin them Dec. 15th, their first game back.
I hope it all works out that way...
