Greg Oden, the number-one pick in the N-B-A draft by Portland, will probably miss the rest of the N-B-A's summer league. The 19-year old needs to have his tonsils removed.
Oden is scheduled to travel to Los Angeles for the taping of the ESPY awards and then likely return to Portland for a tonsillectomy, according to the team. A date for surgery has yet to be set.
Oden's recovery is expected to take about two weeks.
The seven-footer out of Ohio State scored six points and had two
rebounds before fouling out of his pro debut with ten fouls. That's the maximum allowed in the summer league.
In his second game, a fatigued Oden finished with 13 points, five rebounds and nine fouls.
