    I saw this linked in another thread, but I think it's big enough news to warrant its own. What a tough break for Houston.

    ESPN - Yao done for season with stress fracture in left foot - NBA

    Bumma. That really is a shame. The NBA just lost 1billion fans for the rest of the year.

    I thought this story fit more naturally in the Bread Over-usage Thread.

    HQ will not be happy about this. Not only is it the same info posted twice, but it's in it's own thread!!!

    I read about this first in the Bread Thread. It's a shame...I'm suprised more big players don't get stress fractures.

    It pleases me to no end, that you fellas are able to entertain yourselves with so many different threads, breads and heads.

    Btw, Yao hurt = SUX. I have him on a couple of my fantasy teams.

    I'm at work, so I can't check to see who has him in advanced. Anyone know, offhand?

    He's a free agent in the Novice League.

    Roscoe used to have him....until a few minutes ago.

    Word just in:.....Yao is expected to only miss one week.

    He's very heavy, so any stress related foot injury is going to be worse than most.

    In case you ever wanted to know the history of Yao Ming and his family. It's pretty sad really. But it also gives you a pretty good understanding of how different a World Yao came from.

    TIMEasia Magazine: The Creation of Yao Ming

    Long read though. 8 pages.

    One other thing I noticed.

    "Yao was prevented from going to the senior Sharks team because he broke his foot while on the junior team. When he joined the team a year later, he averaged 10 points and 8 rebounds a game in his rookie season. The next year, he broke his foot again, which Yao says decreased his jumping ability by 4 to 6 inches."

    OK, so that is 2 breaks.

    05-06 Season
    "In the midst of the season, he suffered another injury in a game against the Utah Jazz on April 10, 2006, which left him with a broken bone in his left foot. The injury required a full 6 months of rest."

    That is 3 breaks.

    06-07 Season
    "
    On December 23, Yao fractured his right tibia. At that point he was leading the team with 26.8 points, 9.7 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game.[30] Before his injury, he had been mentioned as an MVP candidate.[31] Yao missed the All-Star game due to his injury.[32] He was medically cleared to play on March 4."

    That is 4 breaks.

    And now today's news = 5 broken bones during his basketball career.

    Denver and Golden State are now breathing easy as it appears one of them will get in now with a chance to pull off a first round shocker out there.

    Houston falls from a 5-8 seed to being out of the playoff picture altogether. Most big men can be injury prone with all the weight they carry. Yao has had no luck with his injuries. At least Tracy M. won't have to apologize for losing in the first round this season...
