8/7/2014 10:02:00 AM
Description: Free agent center Greg Oden was arrested Thursday on " two preliminary charges of misdemeanor battery after allegedly punching a woman," according to a Sports Illustrated report.
Insight: If any team was thinking about signing Oden to a contract this should end those thoughts.
 
8/5/2014 3:55:00 PM
Description: Centers Greg Oden, Andrew Bynum, Emeka Okafor and Andray Blatche will visit the Los Angeles Clippers this week, according to a Triity Miller report.
Insight: Is that all that's available ... broken down big men? Three of the four did less than nothing in 2013 and only Blatche (11.2 ppg, 5.3 rpg with Brooklyn) would have any fantasy value.
 
5/24/2014 7:24:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden is expected to be active for Saturday's Game 3 against Indiana. SOURCE: Ira Winderman, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: He hasn't played yet in the postseason. If Oden (2.9 ppg, 2.3 rpg in 23 games this season) does see the court on Saturday it will only be for a couple of minutes.
 
4/10/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Brian Windhorst of ESPN doesn't think Heat center Greg Oden (back) will be back this season.
Insight: "I don't think Greg Oden is going to play the rest of the season to be honest," Windhorst said. "I think Roy Hibbert broke him." Oden last played on March 26 at Indiana.
 
4/6/2014 12:36:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden (back spasms) will not play Sunday against the Knicks, according to Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Oden and Chris Andersen are both out, so the team will need Udonis Haslem, Shane Battier, Rashard Lewis and Michael Beasley to play extra frontcourt minutes to spell Chris Bosh.
 
3/31/2014 6:04:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden (back spasms) will sit out Monday against Toronto.
Insight: It will be Oden's third straight absence. The center has made a nice comeback after sitting out three full seasons, but he has averaged just nine minutes per game and isn't a fantasy option.
 
3/19/2014 6:15:00 PM
Description: Miami will be without center Greg Oden Wednesday against Boston. SOURCE: Ira Winderman, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: He's just getting a breather. Chris Bosh (16.9 ppg, 6.8 rpg) will move back to center with Udonis Haslem (2.3 ppg, 2.7 rpg) getting the start at power forward.
 
3/18/2014 7:48:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden will remain in the starting lineup until further notice. SOURCE: Rob Mahoney, Sports Illustrated
Insight: With Oden (2.7 ppg, 2.2 rpg) at the five, Chris Bosh can return to his natural position at power forward. Oden's comeback has been one of the league's feel good stories this season. He's still not a fantasy option.
 
2/23/2014 3:16:00 PM
Description: Miami big man Gred Oden will get the start Sunday against Chicago. SOURCE: Ira Winderman, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
Insight: Oden hasn't started a game since 2009. He's averaged just 7.8 minutes per game this season. With Oden at the five, Chris Bosh will move over to power forward. It's just the second time this season the Heat have had to play without LeBron James (broken nose).
 
1/17/2014 10:52:00 AM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden (knee) actually played eight minutes against Washington on Wednesday, scoring six points and pulling down a pair of rebounds.
Insight: Oden hadn't played since December 5, 2009. Fantasy owners shouldn't get excited, he won't play enough minutes to be of value.
 
1/15/2014 6:09:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden (knee) will dress for Wednesday's game, according to Tom Haberstroh of espn.com.
Insight: Oden hasn't played since December 5, 2009. Fantasy owners can avoid him.
 
11/12/2013 11:24:00 AM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden has yet to make his season debut and there is no timetable for his return.
Insight: Oden hasn't played since December 2009, so the Heat are easing the former No. 1 overall pick back into action. He's not worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues as he'll be limited when/if he does return to the court.
 
10/28/2013 9:13:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden is not expected to play in the season opener Tuesday, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Insight: Oden hasn't played since December 2009, so the Heat are easing the former No. 1 overall pick back into action. He's not worth drafting in standard fantasy leagues.
 
10/24/2013 10:35:00 PM
Description: Heat center Greg Oden saw his first game action in almost four years Wednesday night against New Orleans.
Insight: Oden scored two points in four minutes of action. He also gave away two turnovers and committed a pair of fouls. It's great to see Oden back on the floor but he's unlikely to be a contributor for any fantasy teams this season.
 
8/2/2013 9:20:00 PM
Description: The Miami Heat have won the Greg Oden sweepstakes. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: The two sides agreed to a two-year contract on Friday. Signing Oden makes plenty of sense for the Heat. The only true low post presence they have is Birdman and with the Big Three running the offense, none of the pressure will be on Oden. Of course the big question is, can he stay healthy? That remains to be seen.
 
8/1/2013 3:13:00 PM
Description: Greg Oden is expected to pick his new team on Friday. SOURCE: Marc Spears, Yahoo
Insight: It's anyone's guess where Oden will end up. The Pelicans were making a strong push for him but then again so were the Kings and Hawks. The Heat, Spurs and Mavericks should also be in the mix. Oden hasn't appeared in an NBA game in almost four years.
 
7/18/2013 9:00:00 PM
Description: The Pelicans are preparing to offer Greg Oden a contract. SOURCE: HoopsWorld.com
Insight: Oden met with the team in Las Vegas earlier in the week. The new deal is reportedly worth $3 million a year. The injury-prone big man might wait for the Heat and Mavericks to counter before accepting a deal.
 
7/15/2013 9:13:00 PM
Description: Former Blazers center Greg Oden is meeting with teams in Las Vegas this week. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: The Kings. Mavericks and Pelicans are three of the team's he'll meet with. The former No. 1 pick hasn't played in a game since 2009 but he's still only 25. There aren't a whole lot of seven-footers in the league and size like that is a huge asset. We don't know where yet but Oden will be playing somewhere in the NBA next season.
 
7/11/2013 10:49:00 AM
Description: Having missed out on both Dwight Howard and Andrew Bynum, the Mavericks will now turn their attention to free agent big man Greg Oden. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: It's a bit of a reach but the Mavericks are getting desperate. As of now, the only centers on the team's roster are Bernard James (2.8 ppg, 2.8 rpg) and Brandan Wright (8.5 ppg, 4.1 rpg in 64 games last season). Oden is also said to be on the Heat's radar, though they might be out of the running now that Chris Andersen has signed on for another season.
 
6/23/2013 10:50:00 AM
Description: In an appearance on SportsCenter Sunday morning, ESPN's Brian Windhorst mentioned free agent center Greg Oden as a player Miami could pursue in the offseason.
Insight: Windhorst also name-dropped Phoenix center Jermaine O'Neal, who played 97 games with the Heat from 2009 to 2010. Oden hasn't played in the NBA since December of 2009. Given his history of knee problems, signing Oden would obviously be a huge gamble.
