Default Houston Rockets Schedule Leaked

So we know who we will be facing and when. Don't know the time yet nor when we will be on NAT TV (if ever) but here it is.

HOUSTON (Reuters) - Houston Rockets' Chinese center Yao Ming is to undergo surgery on his foot injury and has been ruled out for the whole of next season.

Yao will have surgery next week to repair the broken bone in his left foot and the Rockets said on their official site (www.nba.com/rockets) that he would have to sit out the 2009-10 season.

"While no timetable has been set for his return to action, Yao is expected to be available for the team's training camp in 2010," said the report

Last month the Rockets physician Tom Clanton described the injury to China's most famous sports personality as "career threatening."

The seven-times NBA All-Star fractured his foot during the Western Conference semi-finals against the Los Angeles Lakers on May 8.

The team said that surgery will involve a bone graft in the navicular bone of Yao's left foot in order to promote bone regeneration and there will also be treatment designed to reduce the arch in his left foot by realigning and restructuring the bones in the foot.

"This combination of procedures should not only allow healing of his navicular stress fracture, but also improve the mechanics of his foot to reduce the stress on that bone and give him the best long-term prognosis," said Clanton.

"This surgical option is similar to the successful procedure used by Cleveland Cavaliers center Zydrunas Ilgauskas in 2001."

Yao averaged 19.7 points per game and 9.9 rebounds this past season.

Ah yes, let's under-estimate the Rockets since they're incompetent.
2 years ago who would have thought the Rockets would have went on a 22 game winning streak with Yao out for about half of those games.
Last playoffs Rockets were expected to be beat in about 5 games against the Blazers.

I'm not saying the Rockets will win, but I'm saying don't underestimate them before you've seen them play.

What's there to underestimate? Neither of their wings can create a shot, they'll have a 3rd string Center or a 6'6 one.

Their most reliable scorers are Brooks and Scola? That's horrible.

Thats true, last year I kept on hearing analysts talking about how resilient Orlando was, but IMO the Rockets **** on them when it comes to being resilient. Losing T-Mac, Yao, and Mutombo and beating the NBA Champs 2x in blowout fashion.

Rockets have Luis Scola, Aaron Brooks, Trevor Ariza, Shane Battier, Carl Landry and a bunch of other players that can be really good yet everyone says they will be horrible next year (I was one of them, but once I actually thought about it they still might be able to make playoffs this year)

In those 2 games they wont against the Lakers, I thought they were better than with Yao cause they played at a faster pace which I think is what's best for Scola and Brooks who are by far our 2 best players.

Yes it's horrible, but let them play first.

On paper a lot of teams look pretty good but do they play as good as they look?

How about the Grizzlies or OKC? They have at least 3 guys who could create their own shot, OKC is lacking a center so maybe they're a bad example, but Grizzlies have a good center in Marc Gasol yet they finish with the same record as Minnesota (who missed Al Jefferson for a good portion of the season).

How about the Clippers? Injuries have plagued some of their players but they finished even worse than the 2 teams I mentioned above.
PG - Davis
SG - Gordan
SF- Thornton
PF - Camby
C - Kaman

That looks like a very good line-up.

I actually predicted this team would be the 8th seed last summer and look how they turned out.
