Yao Might Be Done - Forever

More

[Dwayne Betts]

The Rockets team physician is saying that the injury to Yao's left foot could end his season and possibly his career. It's early now, too early to say definitively what happen. Yao could have the surgery that Cleveland's big Z had - but right now little is known except an injury that was expected to get better is now worse.


What does this mean for the league? We know it means little for the Rockets, they weren't winning anyway - but Yao was to China what the US beating Brazil in soccer the other day would have been. More than that, Yao is the most offensively skilled big man in a decade. 

I'll never forget watching Yao throw a one-handed touch bounce pass through the lane his first season. He and Stevie Franchise never did it like I wanted them to - but they had some good runs. Personally, I think Tracy McGrady brought the injury bug to Houston with him.
