Default Was Greg Oden medically red flagged?

Just curious...

He had a list of injury concerns since high school, but he was never actually red-flagged. Portland was warned though of the downside of taking Oden and Roy for that matter.

Maybe Portland can demand a #1 pick as compensation from the NBA for the bad medical like the Celtics with Green.

It was said his x rays looked like that of an old man. He had issues. They should have taken Durant.

Oden = worst case scenario

People have been ignoring Drummond's medical red flag, which is even worse than Oden's previous history of injury.

Blair = best case scenario

when my oldest son broke his wrist playing ball 5 yrs ago, the 1st bone doc we went to said he had put screws in oden's knee when greg was a kid. he went on to say that oden never came back to him to get them taken out. oden left my hometown when he was in 8th grade so he has had big time injuries way back then.

Default Re: Was Greg Oden medically red flagged?

I heard nothing about his knees prior to Portland saying he had to have microfracture a month after he was drafted.

I kept hearing about his damn broken hand, and that it wasn't a big deal.

although I wasnt as interested in the draft back then like I am today

I believe that he was, thee was this Grantland article about Oden and apparently the Blazers knew about both Oden and Roy's potential weakness but rolled the dice anyway.

Didn't that article say there was at least one other player flagged on that team?
