Yao Ming Has Stress Fracture in Left Ankle

by December 16, 2010

Condolences to Yao, who very well may be calling it quits for good with this latest setback. From the Houston Chronicle: “Rockets center Yao Ming’s comeback suffered another devastating setback with a stress fracture found Thursday morning in his left ankle. The injury is not in the same area as the previous stress fracture, but it is a major setback. Tests taken after his Nov. 10 sprained ankle and subsequently did not show the injury. Yao had said in the offseason that he would consider retirement if he had been unable to stay healthy.”
