Yao Ming will miss two weeks, that's almost always what players with bone brusies miss.
I'm less worried about the next month, and more worried about the next 5 years.
Can anyone give some background on bone bruises? Is this the kind of thing that heals, and you're done with it? Or does it linger forever?
whenever Yao is out with an injury, he tends to come back stronger, meaner, and better than ever.
I wanted to give Tim Thomas a boot to his knee and fingers if I could when saw that thug used his motion to make Yao land funny. He did it on purpose， I swear.
update? How long is he out?
god bless yao
yao is still young, and will have a long career.

Alright it's nothing, so I wish you get bone bruise yourself.
the bruise injury news was good news. My heart was hurting for like 30 minutes from the moment i saw Yao screaming in pain. Eye got watery, and i prayed for him.
I think Yao needs to wear a knee pad like the DREAM did for many seasons!
Reports on Chinese web sites suggested it could be something more serious, as Yao Ming got some injury history relating to ligament/meniscus tear on his right knee.
ok rockets are done if yao is out i dont care if tmac comes back or not
yao will have a big game...
he only played 26 minutes last night.
I think Kaman's new haircut looks worse then his old one.
BULL**** MAKEUP CALL ON YAO!
Yao with his first foul only 3 minutes into the game...
great ball movement and batman for 3!!!
rafer with 2 careless passes early....
god kaman is a fouling machine. getting away with it again.
**** YAO'S HURT.
Oh No, Yao hurt his knee!! Oh no Oh no Oh no
no pls no
omg season over
i am about to cry
that's about the worst thing that could happen.
Chris Kayman came with hurt in his mind. It is the phenomenon of karma...I've seen it time and time again
that looked bad. ive never heard him moan like that.
lets pray for the best
there it is....this city is cursed! absolutely nothing to look forward to in Houston sports
MVP, possible championship season down the toilet.
yao walking off instead of taking the wheelchair.
good sign! very good sign. can't be anything that will damage his career.
Oh man I hope tis nothing serious. Please God, let it be nothing serious
I'm seeing our season flash right before my eyes...
we just went from super high to a super low in 2 days.
this is gonna be an ugly game.
Oh, dear god, you cant do this to us!
lol Juwan lost his shoe.
we are cursed
well on the plus side, yao doesn't rely on quickness or athleticism so even a serious knee injury wouldn't slow down his career. of course it would still put an end to our season.
it is not a serious knee injury, i know and i asking God to mercy.
riously.. this is unreal. I don't know if any other team
got worse luck then us. Fking unbelievable.....
lol Rafer. O well. Good quarter considering Yao went down. If the Rockets can win this one without Yao I will be very proud.
Look at the positive side.. even if Yao is seriously hurt, we can just rest Tmac for a year and we may add Oden to the roster next year.
Too early for sarcasm?
Man, I hope it is just a bone bruise but it didn't look like he got hit on the knee, it looked like it bent backwards.
curse clippers!!T Thomas,the fking bitch
Shane is supposed to be our 3rd option, and he is really doing that right now. Good step up for Shane.
I hope Yao will be back in a few days.
Great News..Bone Bruise !!! Battier is a monster tonight !! We need Yao and T-Mac
back soon..We can still win this one...How long will Yao be out ?
the words bone bruise never sounded so sweet!!!!
wonderful to watch!
hope that ROX can survive from this curse.NO YAO,NO TMAC,and what will we do?
No way he is out for this game !! I think if it is just a bruised knee he could possibly be back Tuesday...Just the other night Dirk was carried off the court and I thought he was out for the season ( I hate to say I was a little happy) then he came back the next day and played !! In the NBA they can do some miracles on you...Just can't wonder why T-Mac cant shoot his back up with something to take his pain away..
DEKE, please us you elbow to get rid of T.Thomas, and then nail Kaman's ugly face
without Yao and T-mac, somebody must stand out, Battier does, but obviously Wells is not ready yet. this is not enough if we don't have T-mac back next game.... Think Yao will not be back until one month later maybe.
Head and Battier are playing well tonight...
The injury of Yao fires all the guys in Roxs
Guys, Yao will not return tonight, so far, bone bruise is the final message we know, not big problem, he may paly next game.
3-4 weeks? WTF? What do the basketball gods have against the Rockets?
Hmm, on the other hand, when Tracy comes back (sonner than Yao of course) do you think he can carry this team to a winning or at least .500 record with Yao out?
Battier is doing it all on both ends right now.
too bad we still don't have enough fire power even with Battier playing like an all star
Shane is damn good tonight, he knows what to do when Yao and T-mac are both not on the court.
some guy says that Allen is suffering from the same injury since early this month, already missed 9 games...
BUT, if it's like Hayes's, just a couple of days, that would be great!
ROX play great tonight! Hold down there and get a win! go Rockets!
now i understand why JVG asked Bonzi to run those marathons
shoot, Hayes is not just a foul machine, also a rebounding machine, esp offensive rebound
ol bonzi smacked maggette in the face.
We can't score and we can't defend the paint. Clippers basicly score every trip down in 3rd quarter.
Cause we have no one who can score tonight...their all at the hospital...
yes! 5 fouls on maggette. clippers are gonna be in the penalty the rest of the way...... damn maggette should've gotten his 6th.
Defens is more of a problem right now. They just keep go inside, Rox could do nothing except fouling. Small line up isn't going to work against Clippers.
Come on, Rockets, pull one win out for Yao!
I don't expect much diff in the other 4 or 5 games left this year
JVG is a dumbass, Bonzi is still a fat slob and Alston, no comment
I am really pissed!
I'm just numb right now. I honestly don't care if we win or lose this game(not really...always want Rox to win). I feel doom for the first time in a long time. I am usually an optimist. See no glass half full here tho. This just sucks.
game over. o well. can't blame the guys. no tmac + no yao= no win. good effort.
I feel you !! I hate the feeling I get when we lose but to lose and lose Yao !! I don't
