Posted Oct 29 2008 10:53AM

LOS ANGELES -- Portland rookie Greg Oden's highly anticipated NBA debut didn't last long Tuesday night. He left the game against the Los Angeles Lakers late in the first half with a foot injury after taking four shots and going scoreless.

Oden missed two free throws, had two rebounds, one turnover, blocked one shot and picked up two fouls while playing 12:51.

The severity of his injury wasn't immediately known.

Oden, taken by Portland with the first pick in the 2007 draft, missed all last season after undergoing microfracture surgery on his right knee.
