From the Oregonian’s Jason Quick:

Breaking: Blazers determine center Greg Oden has suffered setback, and restructure his one-year deal for a lesser amount…

…But the Blazers, who didn’t comment Thursday after his appointment, determined that he is less likely to return to the court this season.

Ugh. Looks like another year lost for the former phenom and 2007 #1 pick. Hopefully, someday, Oden will get healthy and have an NBA career instead of going the way of fellow #1 pick Yao Ming and fellow teammate Brandon Roy and being forced to retire early, but at this point, that seems to be very much in question, even though Oden is still only 23 years old.
