According to CBS the injury ridden giant who hasn’t played a game since December 5th, 2009 can now run!

On Thursday, Oden provided the first true update to his status in months on his official Facebook page.

“In LA right now working out,” Oden wrote. “I ran the other day for the first time in awhile. Felt good!”

The message comes two weeks after Oden noted: “Hoping this lockout ends soon.”

Back in April, Oden said that he was “nowhere near” returning to the court and that being able to run was “over five months away.” 6 1/2 months later, running is finally in his rearview.
