Yao Ming’s Return Delayed

The medical staff in Houston won’t give Yao the green light to get back on the court just yet. The Chronicle reports: “Rockets center Yao Ming, after hoping to return from his sprained and bruised left ankle in time to play tonight, was held out of Monday’s practice and remains out. ‘Every day is closer,’ Yao said. ‘It’s just not strong enough to support me running, jumping. I think they made the decision based on that.’ Yao said he was not given a timetable for his return, but said he will try to practice on Wednesday. ‘It’s all up to the medical people, what they said,’ Rockets coach Rick Adelman said. ‘They just feel it wasn’t the right time.’”
