So, Oden heard back from the doctors about his opening night foot injury, and it looks like the G.O. era in Portland will be delayed for some time, yet again:

Greg Oden has a mid-lateral right foot sprain.

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.

That sucks, obviously, but it could’ve been worse (much worse).

More on the situation tomorrow…
