I agree completely.

I wonder if Yao's immune system isn't functioning properly, or if he has some form of osteoperosis...?

I doubt it's osteoperosis...

He's already broken that foot before, hence the 3 screws and now he fractured it and it won't heal.

He's just so tall and heavy that his feet take a lot of punishment.

I agree with everything AMG said.

He is too big, and playing year round for years have taken its toll.

Regardless of if he'll be able to play again at some point, Yao needs to consider retirement immediately for the sake of long term health. Imagine guys like Big Z getting around at 60.

The Chinese government for forcing Yao to play on their national team during the off-season. Looks like you killed the golden-egg laying goose, and for what? Making the Olympic basketball tournament only to be bounced in the first elimination game every time?

The Houston Rockets for never getting a backup center who could reduce Yao's minutes. 40 year old Dikembe doesn't count. Basically they played him too many minutes.

Yao himself for agreeing to play for the Chinese national team every damn off-season, and for not demanding that the Rockets find a way to reduce his minutes.





I guess we won't ever have to hear Rocketsgreatness spewing his bull**** about Yao being better than Dwight when healthy anymore, because what most of us already realized is now painfully clear: Yao is never going to be consistently healthy again. Dwight on the other hand is an ironman, a dominant rebounder and defensive presence, and still has a lot of potential to expand his offensive game.
That's the only reason worth noting. Tragic.

this absolutely sucks. It always seems to happen to the nice guys of the league too. The ones that stay out of trouble and drama like your Yaos, Pennys and Grant Hills.

Yao Ming is not a normal human being. He is a freak of nature. His body is wearing down because he is 7'6 and weighs 320 pounds. He is probably one of the tallest human beings to not have gigantism or some other disorder, but that doesn't mean that he won't break down slowly due to his size and weight.

And I am not saying gravity is what's preventing him from healing, I'm saying gravity is part of what is causing him to keep getting injured. Getting injured in the same places over and over is what makes him unable to heal properly. That, and who nows how his size affects the healing process.

Its always sad to see a player's career cut short of injury and in Yao's case it's even sadder because if he didn't push himself so much in the offseason and use that time to rest, his career could've been longer and maybe perform better as well. But I did remember from an interview that he said something along the line of...if he didn't get to play for China's Olympic basketball team, that it would be his biggest failure.

Probably is, Yao wont miss the entire season though.

Chances are that if they're in good contention by March or April he will begin playing, allows him about 8 months to heal and allows him to play in the Playoffs.
