Greg Oden showed up at Trail Blazer media day talking about having “good days and bad days” with his left knee, which he injured in a game last Dec. 5. He underwent surgery on a fractured left patella on the following day and his recovery has been slow.

Oden told reporters Monday he would not be ready to play when the team opens the regular-season schedule on Oct. 26.

He also mentioned having pain in the knee and when he said that I was surprised, because general manager Rich Cho had said on the Morning Sports Page (95.5 The Game) recently that Oden was “pain-free.” So I asked Cho about it later.

“That was before he got patellar tendinitis,” Cho said.

Commonly called “jumper’s knee,” patellar tendinitis is common to players in sports that demand a lot of jumping. But it can be caused by overuse, muscular imbalance, misalignment of leg bones and being overweight, among other things.

Treatment for the malady can include rest, exercise and the use of anti-inflammatory drugs. It is a very common condition among NBA basketball players and certainly this explains the cautionary approach the Trail Blazers are taking with Oden. Pushing someone with this condition can cause further damage to the tendon.

Injury...Prone

Unfortunately the Blazers future potential rests HEAVILY on his shoulders

That sucks. I was really hoping for him to be healthy this year, and showing what he can do.

But the thing at the end of this all was that it was KNOWN that Oden would be injury plagued (most probably) throughout his career.

I remember reading reports and posts of people saying that he had the body of a grizzled 29 year old nba vet...and not a young 29 year old body, but a Tmac type of 29 year old body.

I always thought that Durant should have been the first pick. Luckily, Durant went to my 2nd favorite team behind the Knicks, the Sonics. Unluckily, The Sonics are no more.

Ugh. I really rooted for this guy his whole professional and college career - he dominated so much in college, and I just couldn't wait to see what he could become as a Blazer.

It's done. It'll be miraculous if he ever makes any kind of turnaround. I've never felt worse for a professional player, honestly - even Jason Williams.

Horrible, really sad to see a player constantly get bugged by injuries like that.

But imagine if Portland took the risk (at the time) and took durant instead of Oden...Durant/Roy would have been....I dont even want to think that lol.

Don't get too caught up in those dreams, Portland would have drafted Acie Law knowing that front office.

He has the common disease of BUSTivitis, shared by other NBA bigs Darko and Kwame.

Anybody remember that special with Oden and Bill Russell and all these great big men in a room talking about Oden being the "next" great big man??? Now all he's gonna be is the next Sam Bowie. He even has a transcendent player drafted with the pick right after him. Everyone used to gush about the Blazers and their unfair future, now it's the Thunder who are taking that spot. So crazy how things have turned out.

Sadly oden will be remembered more for that infamous "private part" picture than he will his basketball career.

Blazers would shot themselves in the balls in joy nd happones at this point if he came to be LIKE BOWIE was.

you know 15 ppg and 9 rpg for an decent amount of lyears in the league.

the odds are he does not even reach that and its out of the league after this season or this one and a last one mercy contract more.

Has he even reached the 50-game plateau in his career? This is just getting sad now... the guy can't catch a break.

they should just cut him like my raiders did russell turn the page and move on

Hes a huge person...the knees are not meant for all that running and jumping

This logic is quite flawed.

Yes he is a huge person, but he has huge knees also.

In reality, #### happens. Some kind of imbalance.

It is a very common condition among NBA basketball players

only reason this "injury" is mentioned is because its greg oden and he is trying to comeback from surgery. SO MANY PLAYERS go through this in basketball, most we won't even hear about unless you talk to a trainer...because its never mentioned.

i guarantee the next time Portland has a top 10 pick, they will think a lot more than they have. Since 1984, they have gotten Bowie (2) over MJ, 2005 Martell Webster (6) over Danny Granger, 2007 Greg Oden (1) over Kevin Durant. The only good top 10 pick was Aldridge, and he hasn't been that good, but better than other big men from that class, and of course Brandon Roy, but he was traded for.

:clap: exactly my thoughts! oden was injury prone in high school i thought the blazers took a real shot in the dark picking him over the best player in college at the time. i miss the sonics to but the thunder are cool

I dont know how many more years the Blazers can invest into this kid... the guy would definitely be a great asset to this team if he could put together one healthy season... but this is not looking good... 3 years in a row

Tey took larue martin instead of DR J. then drafted and traded for almsot nothing Moses Malone to the braves hwo traded him to houston.
than took My thompson over larry bird.


If i were portland i would trade all nmy picks every year for players that i already knew how they d in the leageu.

I think Odens career is going to resemble Yaos when its all said and done. A good career, with a few great years, but often on the sideline- never able to reach his full potential.

Man thats rough, hopefully he can tough this one out and it ends up being just minor.

Maybe he should just try for one.
