Breaking News: Semi-Official (Now Completely Official) Word on Oden

Foot sprain.  2-4 weeks recovery.

This is from one of our sources.  Obviously every "inside" piece of info will be looked at with some suspicion until the official news breaks but I can tell you that this source is nearly as impeccable as they come and hasn't been wrong in my experience, which is why I'm posting this.

My initial reaction:  all this means is that Greg will miss the brutal part of the schedule where we wouldn't have won much anyway.
