Surgery could cost Oden six months

Greg Oden will miss the beginning of college basketball season if his rehabilitation from wrist surgery takes as long as expected. Oden's father, Greg Oden Sr., said his son told him prior to Friday's procedure that doctors thought rehabilitation would take six months. A six-month layoff would put Oden back in action Dec. 16. Oden's absence would include the marquee game of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge, Nov. 29 against North Carolina, which pits the nation's top two rated recruiting classes. (Indianapolis Star)
