Gameday Open Thread: OKC vs. Blazers (Tip-off)

[UpdateBusy day of bad news in Blazer-land. Fabricio Oberto retired today due to a recurrence of his heart condition during the Bucks game. And Elliot Williams has a dislocated right patella and is likely done for the season. Details from Ben and Dave are right below this Gameday Thread. --Tim]

PS Rudy Fernandez (back) is out for tonight's game with Oklahoma City. -- Ben

Tonight on national TV, the 4-1 Portland Trail Blazers return to the Rose Garden to face the 2-2 Seattle SuperSonics (Media notes). I hear they've changed their team name, but that may be unsubstantiated. 

Watch: TNT
Listen: 95.5 FM The Game (Portland) or NBA Audio League Pass (National, free)

Don't forget the usual rules:

  1. No swearing.
  2. No pictures.
  3. No discussions of Internet game streams not approved by the NBA.
Enjoy the game! -- Tim
