Wes Matthew's contract may be huge, but in my opinion the Blazer's view him as a cheap insurance policy in case Roy goes down again. Matthew's is no Brandon Roy, but he is a serviceable starter.
If this is the case, what does that say about Roy's ability to stay healthy? What do the Blazers know that we don't? We all know what Bill Simmons thinks about Roy's knees (not that I believe him), but is there something to this?
