We never wish injury upon any player, especially someone like Yao Ming who truly loves and wants to play this game of basketball. Unfortunately, it is now being reported he will miss the remainder of this post-season with his injury.
My Fox Houston: NBA sources on Saturday told FOX 26 Sports Houston Rockets center Yao Ming’s season is over.
Rockets officials have decided even if the franchise advances to the NBA’s Western Conference Finals, Yao will not play any more this season.
The Rockets had issued a release earlier Saturday stating that Yao had undergone tests on his injured left ankle and would be re-evaluated Sunday by team physician Dr. Tom Clanton.
The Rockets initial tests on Yao showed that he had a sprained ankle. He suffered the injury during the Rockets loss to the Lakers in game three of their best of seven series Friday.
The Rockets trail the Lakers two games to one.
Rockets officials have not been available for comment.
