    HOUSTON - NBA sources on Saturday told FOX 26 Sports Houston Rockets center Yao Ming's season is over.

    Rockets officials have decided even if the franchise advances to the NBA's Western Conference Finals, Yao will not play any more this season.

    The Rockets had issued a release earlier Saturday stating that Yao had undergone tests on his injured left ankle and would be re-evaluated Sunday by team physician Dr. Tom Clanton.

    The Rockets initial tests on Yao showed that he had a sprained ankle. He suffered the injury during the Rockets loss to the Lakers in game three of their best of seven series Friday.

    The Rockets trail the Lakers two games to one.

    Rockets officials have not been available for comment

    Rockets center Yao Ming was ruled out for the remainder of the season after a hairline fracture was found in his left foot Saturday evening.

    The Rockets had hopes he could play Sunday in Game 4 in their series against the Los Angeles Lakers, but additional diagnostic tests found the fracture.

    Yao has the heart and soul of a warrior, but he's simply too injury prone..

    There's no point in keeping Yao. His career is over. He's just going keep getting injured every year.
