Greg OdenThe debut of Greg Oden in a Blazers uniform might be delayed until October…that's October 2008.

The seven-foot tall Oden had an exploratory surgery on his knee this morning.  The team's physician found more extensive cartilage damage than previously thought.

That means the number one overall pick in this year's draft will likely miss his entire rookie season.  As Andrew Theen reports, team officials are disappointed, but determined to move on.
