Houston Rockets center and Shanghai native Yao Ming saw his season come to an end this morning when he broke his left foot late in the first quarter in a game against the Utah Jazz. The break apparently happened when Yao’s foot was stepped on by Utah’s Andrei Kirilenko, whose hobbies include injuring himself and others.
This is bad news for Yao, obviously, however it does little to affect Houston’s chances of making the playoffs, which remain zilch. But could this free up Yao’s schedule enough for the big man to walk (or limp) down the aisle in Shanghai this summer?
