Greg Oden Sat Out With Swolen Knee, Cause For Concern?

Setback or not, everyone knew Greg Oden’s knee was an issue. Oden sat out recent workouts because he has swelling in his left knee.

There is not cause for too much concern here. He sat out workouts, not a game due to his swelling. Oden isn’t expected to receive a bulk of playing time in the regular season, anyway. Add that to the fact that a lot of medical procedures goes on behind the scenes, whether it be on the knees of Dwyane Wade or Oden, and coach Erik Spoelstra’s comment about it being part of a “normal process” is clear.

Low risk, high reward. Well, this is a look at the risk, no matter how low it is.
