Danny Ainge had this to say about Oden: (via Boston Herald) "We'll look into Greg still," Ainge said of the 2007 No. 1 overall pick who hasn't played since making 21 appearances in the 2009-10 season. "He wasn't ready to play when we saw him last. He  wasn't ready to work out - I mean, not like a real workout. We'll pr...
