Houson Rockets’ big man Yao Ming is facing a serious foot injury. Ming has had four surgeries on his feet and ankles in the part three years, and may not be able to have another and keep playing. The 7-foot-6 center from China may need upwards of a year to heal his broken foot. The Rockets team physicial Tom Clanton even went as far as to call the latest injury “career threating”. Even if Yao can get back into playing shape, his ankles and feet will always be prone to injury due to his size. The Rockets acquired three guards from the draft: Jermaine Taylor, Sergio Llull, and Chase Budinger. The Rockets have the luxury to trade or drop two of them, and seem to have made smart and cheap decisions.
