    Hopefully we ARE just playing it safe...and it's not something that's going to turn out worse. The Rockets medical staff is notorious for making light of player injuries...someone who's declared out day-to-day can suddenly be out for 2-3 weeks.

    I think this is just a way to tell the CBA that Yao won't play for them during summer.
    Get well soon, Yao!

    dont worry...yao would definitely play with a broken foot if he has to... The dude knows that so many are depending on him. Thousands of year sacrificing for something you love in china doesnt stop here in the U.S!!!!!!!!! ;)

    I read that Yao wasn't limited at all when he played on it, so it doesn't sound that serious. I think holding him out against GS was just precautionary.

    Great question.
    Bone bruise is a precursor to fracture. Bone bruise happens when impact on the bone cause "some" damages to the bone fiber. If the damage is not allowed to heal, more damages will happen and will lead to fracture.

    This is really bad news, not just for this season, but also for the rest of his career. Similar to other big men, often their feet are not strong enough to sustain the pounding of their weight and the grind of many games. Such injuries are not due to a freak accident, but due to wear-and-tear.

    I hope I am wrong though.

    Spurs G Manu Ginobili missed this season with the bruise he had in his ankle. He had a stress fracture...

    Can't Yao get an upper body injury for once? His injuries keep happening on different parts of the body at least, not like its that "old bum foot".

    Don't want to add in pessimism, but Battier missed the first 2 months of the season with a bruised foot. Like someone mentioned, bone bruise could be a precursor to a stress fracture, which put Yao out for the season last year. Last year it was his left foot. Sure hope this doesnt mean his right foot wasnt too far behind in wear.

    No reports of swelling or impaired movement yet which is good. This would be a nice response to news of China wanting Yao to play for them this summer :) Will just eagerly wait for his return to the lineup.

    He is fine people if it was serious Yao wouldn't be laughing and joking with Deke. It was for precautionary reasons, Yao would've played if Rockets were hanging on to their playoff lives.

    yeah, please have a good rest through the rest little time of the regular season and push our team to the second round. We rockets fans have been looking forward to the second round for over a decade. :(

    actually that's the only reason why he got "injuried".
