The Ming Dynasty On Hold



On Tuesday, Houston's general manager Daryl Morey announced that center Yao Ming will be sidelined for the remainder of the season, including the playoffs as the 7-6 center will be recovering from a stress fracture in his left foot. To treat the stress fracture, the Chinese import could choose either surgery or a cast and crutches. Either way, The Ming Dynasty will be completely out of commission for three to four months. Yao, understandably, down about the situation. He explained to Rockets.com, "I felt so horrible walking in this building knowing I need to tell coach and my teammates the situation. When coach tells everybody I am out for the season, everybody is like quiet. That kind of quietness makes me feel kind of scared."
