Roy is still dealing with back pain
Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy said Saturday that his back tightened up during a loss to Dallas on Friday at the Rose Garden.
At one point, Roy felt considerable pain. But he played through it, and said he will take the court against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
Roy missed two practices this week due to a sore back. Roy said the pain is less of a worry than the fact that he has been unable to get in his normal repetitions, which has affected his playing rhythm.
