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
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.
“This is very sad,” Rockets owner Leslie Alexander told KRIV-TV in Houston. “This is a very disappointing moment in the history of the Rockets organization, for our wonderful fans, for the city of Houston and for everybody in our organization. I feel terrible for Yao.”
