PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Trail Blazers guard Brandon Roy has apologized for his comments about playing time after the second game of Portland's playoff series against the Dallas Mavericks, saying they resulted from frustration.

Roy spoke at the team's shootaround before Game 3 of the first-round playoff series, which the Mavericks lead 2-0.

Roy played just eight minutes of the Blazers' 101-89 loss in Game 2 and didn't score. Afterward, the three-time All-Star told The Oregonian newspaper he was disappointed and always thought he would be "treated a little better."

Roy has struggled to find his role with the Blazers this season. He has been dogged by knee problems and had surgery on both knees in January.
