From Oregonian: "Oden could not, or would not, say when he might be able to play in a game. Asked what kind of pain he is experiencing in his surgically-repaired knee, he said, "There's been good days, and there's been bad days.""
In a 95.5 radio interview Joel said his knee feels good. No pain, and every week he feels better. He mentioned he is doing "basketball things" on the court now. He said he is shooting for middle of Nov to play again, but doesn't know for sure. Not worried about his career being over at all.
