    I <a href="http://twitter.com/clutchfans/status/10021505576476672">tweeted this</a> but I'm at the Toyota Center. Yao said he's coming back on December 7th.

    Good, Aaron shouldn't be to far behind. Time to evaluate and see what direction the organization needs to take.

    Great news.

    So, what's the limited playing time at? Still 24min? Or less because of the ankle?

    Man, I hope this guy can remain on the floor and productive. So damn depressing what happened to our franchise players in the last 5 years.

    Good news BUT i'd rather see him practice and get his conditioning up to the point that when he does come back that 24 minute restriction is lifted. I was one of the last people to think this but after watching the first few games he ruins the chemistry of this team playing only 20-24 minutes a game. Either let the dude play or sit him.

    Can we just take the 24 minute limit off? I mean the guy still gets hurt when he plays less than 24 minutes so what is the difference. J/k J/k...no but seriously.

    Just pretend like he's not on the team anymore guys. It's not worth it.

    So if Yao does return, i guess it wont be about who wins the game...but between Yao and Tracy, who will NOT be injured in that game. Seems like a toss-up to me :rolleyes:

    Promo for December 7th game:
    Watch Yao take on Tracy! The battle between the breakables! Come to Toyota Center to see who will break first! Tickets on sale now!

    First 5,000 fans to receive Yao Ming broken foot/ankle, bobble FOOT doll!

    Evaluate when he comes back? The evaluation of yao ming shouldve already been done. If les gives yao anything close to big money, it would mean he's turned his back on winning a championship and, in turn, his back on the fans. This situation is no different from tmac's. It seems like theres going to be no backlash from trading or not resigning yao from the city of houston because we are tired of this nonsense, year after year.

    I wonder if Brooks and Yao will start when they come back. I think you could get away with it with Brooks coming off the bench for a few games but I'm not sure they can do it with Yao.
