Miami Heat Activate Gred Oden


After trading little used backup big man Joel Anthony today, the Miami Heat have activated center Greg Oden against the Washington Wizards.

Oden has not played in a regular season game since December 5, 2009.

Oden was drafted number one overall by  the Portland Trialblazers in the 2007 draft.

For his career, Oden has played in a total of just 82 games as he’s battled constant knee issues.  He’s averaged 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds for his career.

The Heat have also been linked to Andrew Bynum; if Oden can prove to be healthy, it may lead to the heat not further pursuing him.
