In an interview with Casey Holdahl on TrailBlazers.TV, Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden, who has been rehabilitating since undergoing microfracture knee surgery in November, was asked whether he has been able to resume work on the basketball court.  

"I'm nowhere near there," Oden admitted. "I mean, I just started doing two-leg squats like two weeks ago. I've got like a month and a half of just doing that. Putting weight on one leg, that's all I can really do right now.

"I can do cardio here, on the bike, on the elliptical, stuff that's not a lot of weight bearing. And then I lift. That's basically what my day consists of: rehab, cardio, lift, and pool at the end of the day."

A slightly longer transcript of Oden's comments has been posted here. Oden agreed that his current situation is a "bummer" and listed some of the league's young big men that he looks forward to playing against. He also laid out his simple goal for the next few years.
