Greg Oden is still on the road to recovery, some 11 months after undergoing another microfracture surgery on his left knee. Oden, who has been plagued by knee injuries throughout his career, fractured his patella in December of 2009, with recovery coming slow in the aftermath. After multiple setbacks and the microfracture surgery, though, Oden seems to be moving forward.
Oden posted a status update on Facebook on Thursday, informing fans he was running again.
In LA right now working out. I ran the other day for the first time in awhile. Felt good!
Blazers Edge did the math and it seems Oden is right about on schedule.
6 1/2 months ago, Greg Oden said: "running is over 5 months away." So he's in the ballpark of being on schedule?
Oden's future is still in limbo no matter what happens with his recovery. The Blazers did hand Oden a qualifying offer, making him a restricted free agent. Portland could also bring Oden back, should he make a full recovery.
