The Blazers ran Ohio St. center Greg Oden through phsyicals...and they have no worries about his health. I just talked to Blazers G.M. Kevin Pritchard on the phone and he told me they were quote "Comfortable with all our findings" concerning the 7 foot center.
There have been reports that Oden may have issues with his wrist and back...but Oden said yesterday he is healthy...and after the physicals, the Blazers have no worries about that. "No, we're in good shape" said Pritchard.
That is good news. Oden is a special player and a terrific 19 year old kid. The NBA Draft is one week from today. Our own Joe Donlon will be at the Draft in New York next week to cover it with live reports.
By the way, Kevin Durant is arriving any minute at Portland International Airport. Durant is College Basketball's player of the year and will work out for the Blazers Tomorrow. We will have his arrival on our news tonight at 6pm.
See you then.
