GREG ODEN UNDERGOES ANOTHER OPERATION ON HIS LEFT KNEE
Fri, 24 Feb 2012 01:17 PM EST

Center Greg Oden has suffered yet one more problem with his aggravating knees.

The regularly-injured 7-foot center was undergoing a minor procedure to clear out debris in his left knee in Vail, Colorado, when the physician determined there was additional damage and performed microfracture surgery, the Portland Trail Blazers related.

The previous No. 1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft has now had 2 microfracture surgeries on his left knee, and one on his right. He in addition has undergone surgery for a fractured left kneecap. Baseball betting lines

The Blazers say Oden won’t play this season.

Oden, who hasn’t played in an NBA game since December 5, 2009, has appeared in 82 career games for the Blazers, averaging 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds.

It was predicted that he’d be in a position to play this season, but a check up prior to the start of training camp in December allegedly disclosed concerns in relation to a non-weight-bearing ligament in the left knee, further setting back his rehab.

Oden was a limited free agent heading into this season. The Blazers and Oden at first concluded to an $8.9 million qualifying offer for this year, but when the setback was published the two parts restructured the agreement, which was fell to $1.5 million. He will come to be an unrestricted free agent following this season. Baseball lines

The Blazers were in L.A on Monday night for a game against the Lakers.

“I’m sure he is exclaiming, ‘Why Me?’ Often in life, things like that happen, and you question why it’s happening to you,” Coach Nate McMillan said about Oden before the game. “Some of these injuries have taken place, not only on the floor but off the floor. There’s actually not an explanation for why, or sometimes how they’re happening. I am sure it’s been a maddening start for him.”

Portland’s acting managing director Chad Buchanan announced that the team knew there had been the chance of a further microfracture surgery when he went in for the procedure. The doctor found 2 defects, he declared.

Buchanan was asked whether the newest surgery might mean the end of Oden’s career.

“Greg’s still very young, in relative terms, for a pro basketball player. He is recovered from 2 these before – his last 2 microfracture lesions have healed fine,” Buchanan asserted. “So there is no reason to think he could not come back as long as he shows the work ethic and wish that he has had during the past to come back. I believe it’s early to speculate anything beyond that.”

The previous Ohio State star was chosen over Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant with the top pick in the 2007 draft. Debates raged over who should be the No. 1 selection, and the Blazers ultimately went with Oden in the expectation that he could lead the team – along with Brandon Roy and Aldridge – to an NBA championship.

But Oden’s rookie season was postponed when he required microfracture surgery on his right knee that compelled him to miss the 2007-08 season.

“We certainly feel bad for him and we certainly need him to get much better,” Aldridge expounded.
