Portland Trail Blazers General Manager Kevin Pritchard announced today that rookie center Greg Oden will undergo exploratory arthroscopic knee surgery on Thursday after experiencing pain in his right knee. Trail Blazers team physician Dr. Don Roberts will perform the surgery at Southwest Washington Medical Center in Vancouver, Wash.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) taken last week showed Oden may have some cartilage problems in the knee.
A timetable for Oden’s return will be set following the arthroscopic surgery.
