Just sit for another month or so and see how you feel then....No need to come back early like you have the last 2 times and ruin yourself even more...

Stay home til next year. Lose the crap me-first attitude you had at the start of the season, and get used to the idea your career has drastically changed.

Exactly....and it seems he did a lot of harm to his knees coming back so soon.

He should just call this season a wash and start getting ready for next season!

As a blazers fan i got to say its time to start building around LA, Batum and Wes Matthews. Really sad this had to happen too because roy is such a classy athlete and good guy.
The heat picking up oden would be huge i think. Very low risk, high reward.

Returning too soon from Surgery or Injury can be devastating. His returning to play last year in the playoffs a few weeks after surgery has put him in his current predicatment. I admire his heart and dedication but he has to look at his career in regards to the long term picture.

Oden needs to go to the Suns. Their trainers are becoming well known for maintain the bodies of previously injury riddled players, so they might be able to get him through a season.

I should say if Yao doesn't coax them into signing him first.

Now Oden would be a great pick up for the Heat and they should take a chance on him if he wants to go to the Heat. Oden will have a lot to prove and is a free agent this summer...

I agree that they play their hearts out and are very well coached, but they seem to be snake bitten in regards to injuries. A few years ago they had all this young talent and were a team projected to be a powerhouse in a few years. Now they look like a team that needs to start over. Their best player from a couple of years ago, Brandon Roy, now has knee issues and may never be the same player again. Hard to be an effective player without any cartilage in your knees.

With all these injuries that they have all dealing with knees you got to question what the training staff is doing wrong.

That's funny. Did Tonya really think she was gonna get away with it? Come on.
