A Ticker article on Yahoo Sports indicates Greg Oden has a chipped patella in his left knee. He had an MRI and is back in Indiana as previously planned.
If I remember correctly, he had microfracture surgery last year on his other knee.
Anyone have any thoughts? On a macroscopic level, I think a lot of the early NBA buzz has died down because of these injuries and his inconsistent (though sometimes spectacular) play. On the microscopic level (for us Portland folks), I think Greg's injury doesn't look serious, although it might have a temporary effect on the next few games and, perhaps, with some trades in the works.
