Greg Oden Done, Again

Damn, damn, damn and — damn! If it wasn’t for bad luck, Greg Oden wouldn’t have any luck at all. In a replay of his 2007 rookie season as the number one pick selected ahead of Kevin Durant by the Blazers. Oden will miss the entire season again, without playing a single game to have microfracture surgery on his left knee.

Oden has already been sidelined since last December because he needed surgery to repair a fractured left patella. According to the Blazers, the microfracture surgery will repair damaged cartilage and is unrelated to the patella injury.

When Oden last missed an entire season, it was because of microfracture surgery on his right knee. Meaning this dude has really, really, bad knees. Other notable players who have the same procedure that stimulates cartilage growth are Anfernee Hardaway, Jason Kidd, Allan Houston, Kenyon Martin, Tracy McGrady, Chris Webber, and Amare Stoudemire who also had the surgery performed on both knees too.

Oden was having the best season of his short 82 game career when he broke his left kneecap last December with averages of 11.7 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.4 blocks.
