Greg Oden Out For Season

An official press release by the Portland Trail Blazers announced that center Greg Oden will miss the season after undergoing micro-fracture surgery on his left knee. 

Trail Blazers general manager Chad Buchanan told reporters that while Oden's procedure was supposed to be minor, things took a turn for the worse. 

"Once the doctors were inside Greg's left knee, they unfortunately found articular surface damage and determined microfracture was necessary." 

The former number one pick has played a total of 82 games since being drafted in 2007, and this latest setback will certainly affect Oden's status as an unrestricted free agent this summer. If Oden plans to make a comeback, the 7'0'' center will have to find a team who will be willing to wait for him to recover.

Ben Golliver of the tweets that Buchanan will consider releasing Oden to free a roster spot and apply for a Disabled Player's Exception.
