Just when you thought old man Oden was back and ready to go, he went down like a ton of bricks early in the contest between the Blazers and Lakers last night. Â Talk about your bad luck!
“Greg Oden fell awkwardly in the first quarter, limped around a little, and didn’t ever look comfortable. He went scoreless in his debut. X-rays were inconclusive, so they termed it a “mid-foot” sprain, and the franchise player will undergo an MRI today. Oden’s NBA career so far: Right knee. Right ankle. Right foot. And right about now, there are five toes that have to be wincing and bracing every time the big guy takes a step. It’s time for the Blazers to move their season expectations on without Oden. ”
