    Default Oden goes down against Rockets

    Greg Oden just got injured against the game in Rockets..looks like his knee just gave out. He was taken off on a stretcher.. more as news develops.

    edit: Portland PR says it's a fractured left patella, out for the season most likely.


    Poor guy. I had so much hope for him. Here's to hoping it's not serious and he comes back full strength.

    edit: Apparently left knee- non-microfracture knee.

    edit 2:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stYZMOvFGcA

    Video of him in midair and landing with the injury- looking for video of him before the jump.

    Default Greg Oden done for year?

    Just saw on ESPN News that Oden went down pretty badly tonight and had to be taken out on a stretcher with a serious knee injury. We'll see what happens, but it doesn't look good for Oden and he may be out for our game in Indy this Wednesday.

    I literally cringed and wanted to throw up when I saw it-it wasn't disgusting in terms of injury grossness but just the sight of oden down

    I edited my post to reflect the confusion that could have followed. The injury actually seems invisible, but what followed afterword...

    At what point do we all agree that Durant was the better pick?

    This.

    And ultimately it has very little to do with this injury.

    Everything. If Oden hadn't missed his first year due to injury then I dare say he develops a lot faster then he did now. Same for the injuries in his second year and now this one.

    I'm not saying he would have been better then Durant otherwise, but he would have been a lot closer then he is/was now IMHO.

    Greg is a good friend of mine.

    There couldn't be a better person. It's so sad that he may never realize his vast potential because he just can't stay healthy.

    So sad.

    I'm not saying his injuries haven't impacted his career. I believe the microfracture surgery his first season certainly hurt his development as a player. My point was that, before the injury last night, it was already pretty clear that Durant was and would likely be the better player.

    well, to be fair, injury seems to be Oden's ultimate downfall. All that athletic dominance he showed in college seems like a distant memory.

    The player he was at OSU was certainly worthy of the #1 pick. It's just a shame he was never that same player after his microfracture surgery.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Some footage is leaking onto Youtube right now... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stYZMOvFGcA is the one I like the best right now quality wise. I'm looking for one where you can see him before he jumps up against brooks though. Video is also up on the main post.

    Source: http://twitter.com/johnhollinger , who is sitting courtside for the game tonight.

    No date for surgery yet. Repeat, Oden, fractured left patella, likely out for year.
    Official word is Oden will have surgery to repair, is "likely" out for season.
    Blazers PR says fractured left patella for Oden, likely out for season.

    From the video, not sure if that is a depression in the knee cap area or the way the lighting is in the video. Hate to speculate but I will anyway, could be a patella rupture.

    Good call. I was focusing on the knee area after realizing what the trainers did. This fracture thing is really bad though...

    I feel so bad.. this guy has had such a hard career.. and people need to quit comparing him to Durant. It's just not fair. I'm not even and Oden fan and i've always thought Durant would be better but quit these comparisons. It's not fair to Greg because his body has not allowed him to be what he could. Until he plays on a healthy body don't compare him to anybody. These injuries are not his fault.

    Just said on the Clips-Pacers broadcast that he is out for the year.

    I think they said due to patella fracture.

    I feel terrible for Oden. I thought he'd break out this year.

    I can't seem to find it either. Are we missing a big chunk of our archives?
