in each of Canadas last three games.

PORTLAND, Ore. Alan Trammell Tigers Jersey . -- Greg Oden has suffered yet another setback with his troublesome knees. The often-injured seven-foot centre was undergoing a minor procedure Monday to clear out debris in his left knee in Vail, Colo., when the surgeon determined there was additional damage and performed microfracture surgery, the Portland Trail Blazers said. The former No.1 pick in the 2007 NBA draft has now had two microfracture surgeries on his left knee, and one on his right. He has also undergone surgery for a fractured left kneecap. The Blazers say Oden will not play this season. "Its hard to put into words the heartbreak for everyone involved, but especially for Greg. Hes a young man who has experienced a great number of physical challenges in his playing career and today is yet another significant setback for him," Trail Blazers President Larry Miller said in a prepared statement. "We have a lot of empathy for Greg and his family during this difficult time." Oden, who has not played in an NBA game since Dec. 5, 2009, has appeared in 82 career games for the Blazers, averaging 9.4 points and 7.3 rebounds. It was expected that he might be able to play this season, but a checkup before the start of training camp in December reportedly revealed concerns about a non-weight-bearing ligament in the left knee, further setting back his rehabilitation. Oden was a restricted free agent heading into this season. The Blazers and Oden initially agreed to an US$8.9 million qualifying offer for this year, but when the setback was announced the two sides restructured the deal, which was dropped to $1.5 million. He will become an unrestricted free agent following this season. Oden has turned down several interview requests this season. Shortly after the news about the latest surgery broke, Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge posted on Twitter: "Praying for my bro G.O. get better!" The Blazers were in Los Angeles on Monday night for a game against the Lakers. "Im sure hes saying, Why Me? Sometimes in life, things like that happen, and you wonder why its happening to you," coach Nate McMillan said about Oden before the game. "Some of these injuries have occurred, not only on the floor but off the floor. Theres really not an explanation for why, or sometimes how theyre happening. Im sure its been a frustrating start for him." Portlands acting general manager Chad Buchanan told reporters that the team knew there was the possibility of an additional microfracture surgery when he went in for the procedure. The doctor found two defects, he said. Buchanan was asked whether the latest surgery might mean the end of Odens career. "Gregs still very young, in relative terms, for a professional basketball player. Hes recovered from a couple of these before -- his last two microfracture lesions have healed fine," Buchanan said. "So theres no reason to think he couldnt come back as long as he shows the work ethic and desire that hes had in the past to come back. I think its premature to speculate anything beyond that." The former Ohio State star was selected over Oklahoma Citys Kevin Durant with the top pick in the 2007 draft. Debates raged over who should be the No. 1 selection, and the Blazers eventually went with Oden in the hope that he would lead the team -- along with Brandon Roy and Aldridge -- to an NBA championship. But Odens rookie season was postposed when he required microfracture surgery on his right knee that forced him to miss the 2007-08 season. Odens repeated knee problems have drawn comparisons to Sam Bowie, the injury-plagued big man the Blazers selected ahead of Michael Jordan in the 1984 draft. While Bowie played in 76 games his rookie season, averaging 10 points and 8.6 rebounds, he appeared in just 63 games over the next four seasons because of injuries. He missed the entire 1987-88 season. In all, he had five operations. Mike Moustakas Jersey . Manager Ryan Nelsen has confirmed Brazilian No. 1 Julio Cesar will be rested for Wednesdays first leg of the semifinal. That opens the door for Bendik, who started 33 games for Toronto last season. Troy Tulowitzki Blue Jays Jersey . Seattle Seahawks superstar Richard Sherman, widely considered to be the leagues top cornerback, is carrying his war of words with Michael Crabtree into the off-season. MALMO, Sweden -- Anthony Mantha scored on a penalty shot and Griffin Reinhart had a goal and an assist as Canada beat Switzerland 4-1 on Thursday to reach the semifinals of the world junior hockey championship. Canada will face Finland, who posted a 5-3 comeback win over the Czech Republic, in a semifinal on Saturday at Malmo Arena. Curtis Lazar and defenceman Derrick Pouliot also scored for Canada, which is 20-0-0 and has a 130-34 goal advantage all-time against the Swiss at the world juniors. This one was not as easy as previous meetings with the hard-working and team-play oriented Swiss, despite the boost from a pro-Canadian crowd of 2,580 at the Isstadion. The boisterous fans spent much of the game chanting goalie Zach Fucales name. The Canadian squad had to battle the trap throughout the game but managed to score the first goal for the first time in five tournament games. Laughton brought the puck to the net and Reinhart scored on Canadas third whack at the puck from a scramble in the crease. The Swiss were caught on a line change and Samuel Kreiss bought down Mantha on a breakaway to draw a penalty shot 9:04 into the second frame. The big winger deked to the backhand to beat Marvin Nyffeler for his fifth goal of the tournament. Willie McCovey Jersey. Mantha had a shot at a sixth goal when he went in alone late in the period, but was stopped by Nyffeler. Canada was ready to head to the intermission with a two-goal lead, but Mirco Muller lifted a shot from the point that may have gone off Sam Reinharts knee up into the air for Nico Dunner to tip past Fucale with one second left in the period. The goal stood up to review for a high stick. The teams were each short a man at 4:11 of the third when Griffin Reinhart was stopped on a breakaway only to have Lazar follow in and stuff the puck in. Lazar has a goal in each of Canadas last three games. A Swiss power play had just ended when Pouliot skated into the zone and beat Nyffeler with a high wrist shot at 13:49 to seal the win. Canada is assured of finishing in the top four of the tournament for a 16th year in a row, although they lost their semifinal and finished out of the medals a year ago in Ufa, Russia. Notes: Charles Hudon played regular shifts after skipping practice on Wednesday with a sore shoulder. ...
