Will Jay Jensen and Dr. Roberts be taking a voluntary leave of absence "to spend more time with their family"?

Did the team management back itself into a corner by throwing their unsolicited support to Jay Jensen and Dr. Roberts?

Jay obviously cares deeply about Greg. Yet, at a certain point there has to start being some accountability for all the injuries to players on this team. Whether it is the training staff for not keeping the players healthy or the medical staff for not identifying the red flags of potential draft picks, someone or some people are dropping the balI.  Last season was a disaster with injuries and we all said well that was so freaky, nothing like that could happen again. But what happens? I would argue this season is worse.  First we lost Pendergraph for the season. Next it's Elliot Williams gone for the season. Then Greg...done for the year. And that's not to mention the potentially worst injury of all...Brandon Roy. This is no longer coincidence. It is a pattern. And this pattern needs to be altered. 

The thing that sealed it for me, was when Jay Jensen said they had no idea why these injuries keep happening to Oden. That right there was the nail in the coffin for me. It is the training and medical staff's job to figure this out...and they have failed to do so in 3+ years working with Oden. Which does not give me confidence for how they are working with our other players.

I don't care what they said publicly, you can bet there is going to be some internal discussion about the medical and training staff. Since the Blazers management just backed themselves into a corner at the press conference, they can't very well fire the training and medical staff outright. Do not be surprised at all if Jay Jensen "voluntarily" decides to leave the team to "spend more time with his family" very soon. The same goes for Dr. Roberts.
