Yao Ming injuredThe injury bug continues to bite the Houston Rockets and now it's really starting to hurt.

Saturday night while playing the Clippers Houston lost superstar Yao Ming to a broken leg. The 7-6, 310-pound center, who is having a dominant season as the league's best at his position, is expected to miss at least six weeks, reports the Houston Chronicle.

The Chronicle Saturday night reported:

Yao Ming hit the floor, and the Rockets seemed certain to crash, too. For most of the night, they refused. Moments after Yao was carried off the court in screaming pain with a leg injury, they opened up a lead. As he was taken to Memorial Hermann for an MRI, they pushed the lead to 11 and held off the Los Angeles Clippers through the second half. (Yao was diagnosed late Saturday with a non-displaced fracture in his right tibia. He will be out at least six weeks.)

So far this season Yao in 26 games has averaged 26.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game on 52.3 percent shooting and an 86.5 free throw percentage.
