He's having surgery on the foot he's now broken twice.
Houston Rockets center Yao Ming
has elected to have extensive surgery on his fractured left foot that
almost certainly eliminates his chances of playing next season but
offers hope that he can resume his NBA career and not fracture the foot
a career-ending third time.
After consultation with a battery of
doctors, Yao, 28, has decided to undergo a bone graft to heal the
existing fracture and have his arch surgically lowered to reduce the
stress on his foot.
Wonder how Trevor Ariza feels. He signs on with a team that won't get TMac until February and now won't have Yao at all. Enjoy the lottery.
