Monday gave us news that the Portland Trail Blazers’ crutch aficionado Greg Oden will miss the entire season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his left knee. It’s the former first overall pick’s second such procedure on that knee and third overall. It’s quite possible Oden, whose contract is up after this season, is done in Portland.

Adding insult to injury, The Oregonian posted a by-the-numbers breakdown of the oft-injured center’s career. And it is not pretty:

20,800,000: Dollars paid by the Blazers

26,908: Dollars per point

82: NBA games played in since being selected with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2007 draft

61: Games played in the 2008-09 season

21: Games played in the 2009-10 season

9.4: Career scoring average (773 career)

7.3: Career rebounding average (602 career)

3: Microfracture surgeries (2 on left knee, 1 on right)

0: Games played in the 2007-08, 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons

Hey, here’s a number: 82, the combined amount of points Kevin Durant, who was picked second overall behind Oden in 2007, has scored in his last two games coming into Tuesday. I know, I know. The Durant-over-Oden put-down by now is a tired one. But still.
