It really stinks if you're a Rockets fan. That was a HUGE blow to their roster and all the pressure now flows on T-Mac who has had his shares of injuries lately as well. I wish Yao the best of luck if he has surgery which he likely will do.
BUT he's nowhere near Yao Ming, not in PTs, REBs, Height, Weight, NOTHING. He's a forward anyway and is more of a bench player. Seems like all the Rockets have as a replacement is......cough....D!kembe Mutumbo....cough
