Greg Oden Is Running Following His Most Recent Microfracture Surgery

The Portland Trail Blazers selected center Greg Oden first overall in the 2007 NBA Draft, ahead of future NBA All-Stars Kevin Durant and Al Horford. It hasn't worked out well for them so far; Oden has missed all or part of three seasons -- including what would have been his entire 2007 rookie year -- with persistent knee problems.  The most recent setback, Oden's second microfracture knee surgery, was announced in November of 2010.

Finally, though, there's some very small good news about Oden's health, courtesy of Oden's his Facebook page via the Blazersedge blog on SB Nation:

"In LA right now working out," Oden wrote. "I ran the other day for the first time in awhile. Felt good!"

It's a long way from running to playing basketball, but it is a noteworthy first step.
