Greg Oden Suffers Hand Injury Once Again, Saying Goodbye To Bastketball For Real?
Greg Oden is in superb form. He is currently playing in China, but the ghost of injury isn’t leaving him. After having a great debut game, in which he posted 23 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, but sustained a right hand injury following that, which could rule him out for 2-3 weeks.Advertisement
Former No 1 draft pick in NBA, Oden has signed for the Chinese side, Jiangsu Dragon this season. He featured for the Miami Heat in the last season’s NBA. After suffering a hand injury in the first preseason game in China, Oden once again picked up a hand sprain in the following game. He was seen in the court-side with his hand noticeably wrapped in a bandage.
Oden’s career was plagued by a string of injuries. But he could draw inspiration from the fact, that the recent set of injuries he picked up, won’t affect the long-standing knee problem. The knee-problem is one of the reasons due to which Oden couldn’t live up to the expectations after being picked No 1 overall in the 2007 NBA draft by Portland Trail Blazers.
