Greg Oden, the number 1 draft pick in the NBA Draft this year will not be playing for the Portland Trail Blazers this year. After getting a tonsillectomy this summer Oden was looking forward to working out in Portland this summer before training camp.
“Greg had an arthroscopy and a microfracture surgery today,” team physician Dr. Don Roberts, who preformed the surgery, said in a statement posted on the Trail Blazers’ Web site. “He was found to have articular cartilage damage in his right knee. The area of injury was not large and we were able to treat it with microfracture, which stimulates the growth of cartilage.
What does this mean for Greg Oden? No basketball for the Trail Blazers this season and no dancing. Oden was excited to move to the Portland area so he could work out with the team and check out the club/dance scene in Portland. These things will have to wait for Oden’s recovery from knee surgery.
Yes, you’re right this article is pointless and anything mentioned about dancing is completely made-up. But we will use the cheapest of excuses to post the following picture….
