Roy scored 19 points on Oct. 16 at Target Center against Israeli club Maccabi Haifa.

Last month, Roy said he plans on making an impact right away.

The 28-year-old three-time All-Star is returning to the NBA after his knee problems forced him to leave the game before the 2011-12 season. The Wolves signed Roy to a two-year deal in July.
