Blazers' Greg Oden Out For Season

Portland Trailer Blazers Number 1 overall selection in last June’s NBA draft Greg Oden will miss the entire year due to microfracture surgery recently performed on his knee. Oden is expected to be on crutches for 8 weeks, with a full recovery time of 6-12 months.

This injury comes after Oden missed a lot of Summer League play and pulled off the USA Team when he had his tonsils removed.

The Trailblazers are optimistic about a healthy return, due to his young age and relative health of the rest of his knee.
