Greg Oden is one step closer to the court.
He could be cleared to practice as soon as Thursday. On that day, he will meet with a doctor, who performed his recent knee surgery.
Both the Blazers and Oden seem very pleased with his recovery. But his history shows a different story.
Recently, Blazers President Larry Miller suggested a January 2012 return for Oden. He missed the 2010-2011 season after playing in 21 games in the 2009-2010 season.
In the 2008-2009 season, he played in 61 games. This is the most games he’s ever played in a season.
