You Make the Call

Hypothetical situation:
You're coach McMillan. It's March 14, 2008. The Oden-less Blazers have surprised everyone and played with remarkable chemistry and teamwork to compile a 28-38 record. They are still in the running for a playoff spot with 16 games to go. Ten of those games are at home and 14 are against Western Conference opponents. After two recent long road trips, the team is beginning to feel the rigors of a tough NBA schedule. With a three game home stand beginning tomorrow, Greg Oden has approached you privately and said, " I'm ready. Let me play!". He has made a nice recovery and trained hard in rehab. Last week, doctors released him to go full speed in practice...

Friends, this is not a trick question and my focus is not so much the feasibility of this hypothetical scenario. But I'm really interested in your rationale as You Make the Call.
