Greg Oden hurts his knee… again: Video

In the first quarter of tonight’s game against the Houston Rockets, Greg Oden jumped in the air, only to crumple to the ground in immense pain.

Portland fans at the Rose Garden went silent as Oden grabbed as his knee on the floor. He was eventually carried off on a stretcher. The diagnosis: A fractured left patella (kneecap). He will be out for the season.

This is just the latest knee injury for Oden, who missed all of ’07-08 following microfracture surgery and broke a kneecap last year.

I don’t think there is a single NBA fan who hasn’t been rooting for Oden to stay healthy and make his mark on the NBA. But the more these knee injuries stack up, you have to wonder if he is ever going to live up to the potential the Trail Blazers saw when they drafted him.
