Oden's pro career off to a tough start

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) _ The Portland Trail Blazers are facing the
prospect of playing the 2007-2008 without the NBA's top draft
choice in uniform. Greg Oden had surgery on his right knee today
after doctors found cartilage damage during an exploratory
procedure.
The 7-foot center is expected to be on crutches for up to eight
weeks. The team says his recovery likely will take six to 12
months.
The Blazers took Oden with the number-one pick after he played
just one season at Ohio State. He helped lead the Buckeyes to the
national championship game by averaging 15.7 points and 9.6
rebounds.
