03:11 PM ET 11.16 | The Minnesota Timberwolves took a big risk in signing Brandon Roy this summer, and so far, it hasn't paid off. The former Trail Blazers star is averaging just 5.8 points per game and has missed the team's last three games with a sore knee. As Roy continues to struggle, the criticism will only grow louder. However, general manager David Kahn remains unconcerned, saying the team would be naive to expect Roy's return to go perfectly smoothly. "Absolutely (we expected bumps in the road)," Kahn said. "We were very clear last summer that we didn't expect everything to be issue-free. We didn't expect the opposite. We went into it not knowing what to expect. So, I don't think that anything that has occurred up to this point could be considered surprising."
