Greg Oden has microfracture surgery: Out for the remainder of the season (again)
As if Greg Oden hasn’t had it rough enough. The 7 footer is sidelined for the season, yet again, after a minor procedure on his knee turned into his 3rd microfracture procedure since being the #1 overall pick in 2007.
This will be the 3rd time the 23 year old has had this procedure on his knee. Twice on the left knee and once on the right knee.
The shame of the situation is that Oden has so much young, untapped potential in a league starving for quality big men. The Portland Trail Blazers will likely look at other long-term options at this point. To think they could have drafted Kevin Durant.
