Yao Ming Has Ankle Surgery – Career In Jeopardy

~ Houston Rockets center Yao Ming underwent surgery (Thursday Jan 6th) to repair a stress fracture in his left ankle … according to reports it may end his career. Ming has only played in 5 games this season and has been declared out for the season by the Rockets. It’s been a difficult road the last couple of years for the 7 ‘ 6 Ming who missed all of last season following reconstructive foot surgery.

With his future in doubt as far as returning to an NBA court, Ming says he will just focus on his recovery and then examine his options.

“I know this will be another long rehab, But I’m looking forward to beginning my recovery. I will use this time to consider all of my options, and will make a decision regarding my career plans as I get closer to the end of my rehab.” … Yao Ming

Imagine suffering a serious injury and then battling all the way back to play again only to injure yourself again. This time the injury might be enough to end your career.  Ming is 7 ‘ 6 and thats  a lot of impact coming down on those legs and feet. This is also the final year of his contract. He’s going to have to ask himself is this worst risking a healthy quality of life in the long term.
