Breaking News: Semi-Official (Now Completely Official) Word on Oden

Foot sprain.  2-4 weeks recovery.

This is from one of our sources.  Obviously every "inside" piece of info will be looked at with some suspicion until the official news breaks but I can tell you that this source is nearly as impeccable as they come and hasn't been wrong in my experience, which is why I'm posting this.

My initial reaction:  all this means is that Greg will miss the brutal part of the schedule where we wouldn't have won much anyway.


Update: This has been confirmed by John Canzano on 95.5.

Update #2--Official Word from the Blazers


PORTLAND, Ore. - A Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) and Computerized Axial Tomography (CAT) Scan today confirmed Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden has a mid-lateral right foot sprain.

The MRI revealed a couple of avulsions that are not believed serious and do not require surgery.

Oden is expected to be out 2-4 weeks.

The injury occurred during the first quarter of Portland's Tuesday night game at the Los Angeles Lakers.
