Yao Ming Has Surgery

Houston Rocket center Yao Ming had surgery on his ankle today. Ming suffered a stress fracture in his left ankle and has been out since November 10th. Yao Ming played in only five games this season after sitting out the entire 2009-2010 season with a foot injury. There is speculation that the injury will call an end to the 7 time NBA All Star’s career.

Said Yao Ming: “I know this will be another long rehab, but I’m looking forward to beginning my recovery. I will use this time to consider all of my options, and will make a decision regarding my career plans as I get closer to the end of my rehab.”

Yao Ming has been in the NBA for eight years, since being drafted number one overall in 2002, and has a career average of 19 points and 9 rebounds per game.
