Greg Oden To Undergo Fifth Knee Surgery Today

Tuesday February 21st, 2012

Portland Trail Blazers center Greg Oden will undergo his fifth knee surgery in as many years on Monday, according to CBS Sports. 

Earlier this month, Oden underwent his fourth knee surgery when doctors removed debris from his right knee. Today they will undergo the same procedure on the other knee.

"He's still considered out indefinitely," Buchanan told in early February. "Having this procedure on the right knee and the possibility of his left knee doesn't increase the likelihood of him playing soon."
