PORTLAND, Ore. - Rookie center Greg Oden is struggling to make an impact for the Portland Trail Blazers.

After a lackluster performance in his first start at home, Oden looks to avenge a poor showing against the Miami Heat two weeks ago when the teams meet tonight.

Oden returned to the starting lineup against Sacramento on Monday, but had more turnovers than points in his 19 minutes.

Oden has been held under 10 points in each of his last three contests.
