injury takes yao ming out for the season

Aw man. Bad news for Yao Ming. The All-Star center is apparently out for the season with a stress fracture in his left foot: Yao done for season with stress fracture in left foot. Huge bummer. And terrible news for the red hot Houston Rockets, who are in the midst of a crazy winning streak. They did, however, grab their 13th straight victory tonight against the Washington Wizards—without Yao: Yao's injury shouldn't cripple Rockets' playoff hopes. There's also now concern, of course, whether Yao will be able to play for China at the Olympics this summer: China expresses shock, concern over Yao Ming injury, but still hopeful of Olympic appearance.
