WASHINGTON (AP) — Portland Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy will miss his second straight game because of a sore right hamstring.

Roy hoped to play Monday afternoon against the Washington Wizards. But after consulting with coach Nate McMillan and a team trainer following warmups, Roy decided not to play.

He also missed Friday’s game against Orlando. Roy left during the third quarter of the Blazers’ 120-108 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. An MRI on Thursday confirmed the strain.

The two-time All-Star leads Portland with 23.4 points and 5.1 assists per game.

Jerryd Bayless will start for Roy again.
