Greg Oden Completes First Full Practice
Greg Oden went through his first full practice with the Miami Heat on Monday, clearing a significant hurdle in the former No. 1 overall pick’s quest to play in an NBA game for the first time in four years.
Oden participated in some scrimmage stages of the Heat’s workout at AmericanAirlines Arena as the team prepared for Tuesday’s preseason road game against the Washington Wizards. Among the highlights of Oden’s day was blocking a shot by LeBron James.
It marked the most extensive on-court work Oden has done with the team since he signed with Miami in July after multiple knee surgeries forced him out of the game.
