Default Greg Oden Out For the Season

Oden lost for the season

Portland Trail Blazers No.1 draft pick Greg Oden will miss the 2007-08 season after an exploratory surgery revealed cartilage damage in his right knee.

"Greg had an arthroscopy and a micro fracture surgery today," team physician Dr. Don Roberts, who preformed the surgery, said in a news release. "He was found to have articular cartilage damage in his right knee. The area of injury was not large and we were able to treat it with micro fracture, which stimulates the growth of cartilage. There are things about this that are positive for Greg. First of all he is young. The area where the damage was is small and the rest of his knee looked normal. All those are good signs for a complete recovery from micro fracture surgery."

Oden is expected to be on crutches for up to eight weeks. Recovery time from micro fracture surgery varies, but generally takes between six and 12 months.

"Certainly this is a setback, but our future is still incredibly bright," Blazers general manager Kevin Pritchard said. "Is it disappointing? Yes. However, this is a great core of talent and players of strong character and will continue to be."

Oden, the top pick in June's NBA draft, averaged 15.7 points and 9.6 rebounds for Ohio State last season, leading the Buckeyes to the NCAA national championship game as a freshman.

"We know this discouraging news for all of our fans, however, the people of Portland are very enthusiastic and compassionate about their Trail Blazers and I know they will stand behind Greg and the team during his recovery," Blazers President Larry Miller said. "We believe our fans and sponsors are going to continue to support us because they know we're headed in the right direction."

The Blazers have called a 1:30 p.m. news conference, so look for more updates this afternoon.

oh well, not much you can do about it now.
oden would have been awsome to watch this sesaon for blazers fans, but u still got LaMarcus Aldridge and Brandon Roy to look out for.

personally i wanna see sumthing out of Martell Webster, im epectin a breakout season from him soon.

There's so much young talent on this team, that I think it's a good thing. Oden being out allows other players to take control and possibly have breakout seasons, like LaMarcus Aldridge or Martell Webster, or somebody under the radar. Besides, Greg Oden is a rookie and the team will not be missing too much.

The worry is for Oden's future though. We know that this gives others a chance to develop on their own, but it certainly isn't worth the risk of Oden's development.

Me too the Grizzlies got a good player to run the pick'n'roll with Pau and make it effective...Lowry probably would never be able to make that a trademark. Plus if they had gotten Oden, I'm not sure how Pau would've reacted. Happy, because his team has a potentially dominate inside threat? Or angry, because he will get the ball less now?

Who is Jordon? Is he any good?

Btw, real original comparison there. We haven't heard them before.
