Yao Ming has a stress fracture in his foot. He is going to miss the rest of the season and the playoffs. A small part of me was happy when I saw this because the Nuggets now have no excuse to miss the playoffs. The other part of me was really sad. Yao really started to round into form this year and show why he was the #1 overall pick. The real tragedy in all of this is that he could be done forever. Foot injuries are really hard to rehab, especially for big men. The dude is 7'6" 300+. You heard it here first but this is likely the end of the Ming Dynasty. Waxing Poetic unfortunately included.
