That may sound bad, but at least it isn't 2-4 months which is what I was expecting. And if he comes back after this rinky-dink foot injury and gets hurt again, I will officially have given up on him. Here is the press release from the team, about 6 hours after the damn MRI:
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 word avulsion just makes your nose crinkle to say. My avulsion hurts right now, and that's definitely not a good thing. See you in a month Greg! And who knows, maybe this is a Blazer conspiracy to keep GO away from Duncan, Shaq, and Yao...
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.
