    Default Rockets could lose Yao for season, if not longer.

    Rockets could lose Yao for season, if not longer - NBA - Yahoo! Sports

    The Rockets and Yao’s reps are frightened over his future, and the concern is the most base of all: Does Yao Ming ever play again?

    “The realization has hit them that this is grave,” one NBA general manager said.


    For now, the Rockets have privately told league peers it could be a full season before Yao might be able to return to basketball. Multiple league executives, officials close to Yao and two doctors with knowledge of the diagnoses are describing a troubling re-fracture of his navicular bone. Three pins were inserted a year ago, but the foot cracked in the playoffs and isn’t healing.

    “It sounds like he’s missing most of next season, if not the entire 82 games,” one league executive who has had recent discussions with the Houston front office told Yahoo! Sports. “That’s all that [the Rockets] will concede quietly, but they know it’s probably much worse
    It's too bad if this is the end of his career. He is great for the game and by all accounts a pretty good guy.

    If it's true, then it's time to call it a career.

    Agreed with the OP that he has been fantastic for the league and the game.
