Default Is Yao Ming's career almost over?

The Houston Rockets have announced that Yao Ming will miss the rest of the season due to a knee injury....stress fracture. So is his career on life support? Source- Fan590

Houston Rockets center Yao Ming(notes) has a stress fracture in his left ankle, the injury is related to the ankle sprain that he suffered earlier this year, and you have to wonder if this streak of injuries is ever going to end.

Clutchfans.net has the news:

An MRI performed today on Rockets center Yao Ming revealed a stress fracture of the Medial Malleolus in his left ankle. The fracture, which is related to his previous injury of the Tarsal Navicular bone, presented itself during the course of his current rehabilitation program. There is no timetable for his return at this time.

It should be noted that this stress fracture isn't related to the stress fractures Yao has had to deal with in his actual feet, and that it's only related to the ankle sprain he suffered in November, but if the guy can't come back from a sprained ankle without one of his bones developing a crack (stress fractures aren't clean breaks, but they're serious stuff nevertheless), how is this ever going to work?

I honestly don't get how he gets hurt so much... I really don't. Every time that guy jumps and leaves his feet something breaks.

Well, I've never been a fan. I remember before the 2002 draft. Was said that Yao will dominate the decade, He was the "After Shaq"... 30pts 12rebds guy...
Great hands, great personnality, But he never dominated the game...
Maybe I expected too much of him.

Yeah, it's quite uncommon for 7'0+ basketball players to suffer a myriad of leg injuries.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall. Yao's feet take a major hit everytime he leaps in the air.

Yao Ming's body is a freak of nature. i really don't think humans are to be that tall. the stress on his entire body every time he walks let alone jump is more than his body can take. i really wonder how his body will handle as he ages even more

I wish Mr. Miyagi is still alive. All he needs to do is rub his palms and touch Yao's feet and it will be well again.

He did it to Daniel-San, and then he was able to deliver that Crane Kick.

Gigantism. Hormone disorders.



PS. Some Chinese guys always said that Yao is better than Sabonis. Yeah right, Sabas was under 23 when he already suffered 3 Achilles' tendon injuries...

Sorry but I come from a family of reallly really tall people, my dad was 6'9" my mom was short but whatever, I'm 6'11" my brothers are 6'8" and 6'6" and I have about 6-7 cousins who are between 6'10" and 7'3" we all used to mess around as kids and still do to this day (mostly playin basketball or somethin) and to this day none of them have had any problems.

Hes obviously just got brittle bones or somethin.

Mess around? Well good for you. But a 7'+ professional player that plays day in day out often have knee and foot injuries. Take a look at the bigs in the league that have have knee and foot injuries. The list is a lot longer then guards that's for sure. The fact is playing on the hard wood takes it's toll on the knees especially for bigs. Especially considering that these days many of these players play all season and then play a good chunk of the summer as well. To me, playing on hardwood 9+ months out of the year is no different then playing baseball on shitty artificial turk, that takes it's toll on the knees and back and the players in that sport don't do the running and jumping that basketball players do.

I'm quite impressed with your family i think i would feel like a dwarf near you (i'm 6'1'') Whatever it's not the same playing pick up Bball or something like that or professional basketball in the NBA; the level of stress you force your body is obviously different.

It's true about big people. Yes, 6'11 is very tall, but not a giant or some gigantism consequence. And 6'6 is not big, I mean it's tall, but not even close to that what we talking about. In fact 6'6 - 6'7 is the perfect height for sprinters.
Theoretically, how bigger you are the faster you should be, cause you have long legs. But everything is opposite, 6'0-6'6 atheles shows amazing speed, and you can't see 7 footers in athletics.
Course not all 7 footers has foot made of glass, but it's related. No 8 footer was able to walk without stick.

Yao's career might not reach the full potential that many thought he was capable of delivering but as an ambassador to the game, he is worthy of being in the Hall of Fame, ten times over...

What he is done to bring NBA basketball to China is beyond measure...Now when one travel to China, NBA is all over the web, local TV's , etc.

Way to go Yao...rest your brittle bones ! Happy Retirement !

I suppose your right, and by messing around I mean we usually play 2 times a week AT LEAST, but obviously not at the level they do. Regardless the guy can't even make it 20 games it seems. I do plenty of working out and sports related things (and sports themself) along with the rest of my family, and other than an unrelated accident, none of us have had problems.

I get what you say with how he plays more and the surfaces and such, but theres gotta be something strictly wrong with his body, because its unreal.

And the only reason I'm pointing it out for Ming, and not other 7 footers, is because other than oden, most seem to be able to play at least 1 full season, just kinda odd. But I see what you all mean, and understand it with the 7 footers, and it makes perfect sense. I dunno maybe my family is just lucky and gifted lol.
