Default Yao Ming out for rest of playoffs with left foot hairline fracture!

http://www.insidehoops.com/blog/?p=4310

Rockets center Yao Ming has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2009 NBA Playoffs after further diagnostic procedures conducted today revealed a small hairline fracture in his left foot. The finding is in addition to the earlier diagnosis of a left ankle sprain that he sustained during Friday night’s 108-94 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers in Game 4 of the Western Conference Semifinals playoff series. While no surgery is needed, the expected recovery timeline is between eight to 12 weeks.

I'm a Lakers fan but this makes me sad. The guy works so hard and plays with a ton of heart but his body fails him.

He did play an extraordinary amount of games for him as he was also in the Olympics too.

They just mentioned it in the Cavs-Hawks broadcast, the injury is a hairline fracture, not a sprain, and he's out for the rest of the playoff. Laker take it in 5.

Default Re: Yao out for the season?

Very sad news. Hopefully he makes a full recovery and comes back strong next season.

I am going to chalk this injury up to bad Karma from the Blazer/Rocket series where iTruWarrior (#1 Yao nut hugger) was wishing bodily injury on Oden.

Well that's a lame end to what was looking like the most exciting second round series.

ESPN said it was a hairline fracture.
