Quick: Brandon Roy out at Least 1 Week; Undergoing PRP Therapy

27
Jason Quick of The Oregonian with the latest on Brandon Roy. Update (10:25AM): Brian T. Smith is reporting Roy will receive an infusion of platelet rich plasma in his hamstring, which could result in an even longer absence. Here's a great piece about platelet/plasma injections in professional athletes by Alan Schwartz of the New York Times. Here's a piece from Injury Expert Will Carroll with a full discussion of the therapy as performed on baseball player Michael Young. Jason Quick has some details on the procedure up now as well. For the super-curious, here's a video explaining the treatment therapy and another video showing the therapy in action. -- Ben Golliver | benjamin.golliver@gmail.com | Twitter PS Thanks to The Thinker in the FanShots.
