July 20 10:14 PM PT11:14 PM MT12:14 AM CT1:14 AM ET5:14 GMT1:14 PM 北京时间10:14 PM MST12:14 AM EST9:14 UAE06:141:14 ET - Yao has made it official, telling a packed news conference in his hometown that a series of injuries have forced him to retire from basketball. The 7-foot-6 center, who became a household name in China before starting his NBA career with the Houston Rockets as the top draft pick in 2002, said: "I will formally end my career.''
Analysis: Yao played eight seasons in the NBA, but missed 250 regular-season games over the past six years. Houston general manager Daryl Morey attended Yao's farewell conference Wednesday, and NBA Commissioner David Stern was scheduled to send a message via video link. Morey had to get permission from the NBA to be attend because the lockout prohibits contact with players.
July 19 9:28 PM PT10:28 PM MT11:28 PM CT12:28 AM ET4:28 GMT12:28 PM 北京时间9:28 PM MST11:28 PM EST8:28 UAE05:280:28 ET - Yao Ming is likely to make it official on Wednesday, announcing what is expected to be his retirement from the NBA and a sport that made him a household name in China. The 7-foot-6 center for the Houston Rockets played eight seasons in the NBA, but has missed 250 regular-season games over the past six years.
Analysis: On Wednesday, a large reception hall at a hotel in the Pudong section of Shanghai - Yao's hometown - has been booked for what will likely be the country's media event of the year. Hundreds of media have been accredited to attend the restricted event and are expected to arrive hours early to go through security checks. It is expected to be broadcast live in China and in many countries around the world.
July 10 7:55 PM PT8:55 PM MT9:55 PM CT10:55 PM ET2:55 GMT10:55 AM 北京时间7:55 PM MST9:55 PM EST6:55 UAE (+1)03:5522:55 ET - Ming is retiring after nine NBA seasons, according to a person with direct knowledge of his decision.
Analysis: The person spoke on condition of anonymity, because Yao has not announced his plans. Yao has scheduled a July 20 news conference in Shanghai to talk about his future. ``There is no way he will come back,'' the person wrote in an e-mail. ``His body can't hold that, and if he plays again, there is risk to get hurt again. Yao does not want to take another surgery. He is done.''
July 9 7:04 PM PT8:04 PM MT9:04 PM CT10:04 PM ET2:04 GMT10:04 AM 北京时间7:04 PM MST9:04 PM EST6:04 UAE (+1)03:0422:04 ET - Yao Ming's American agent would not confirm reports that the Houston Rockets' All-Star center is retiring, saying Yao has scheduled a July 20 news conference in Shanghai to reveal his plans. John Huizinga said Saturday night that he was ``not in a position'' to say whether Yao had informed the NBA that he planned to retire.
Analysis: Yahoo! Sports first reported Yao's intention to retire. Neither the Rockets nor the NBA could comment on the reports because of the lockout. The 7-foot-6 Yao has been plagued by leg and foot injuries late in his career, and missed 250 regular-season games over the past six seasons. He played in only five games last season, before sustaining a stress fracture in his left ankle.
May 19 10:52 AM PT11:52 AM MT12:52 PM CT1:52 PM ET17:52 GMT1:52 AM 北京时间10:52 AM MST12:52 PM EST21:52 UAE18:5213:52 ET - Yao says his surgically repaired left ankle is healing properly and he would like to remain with the Houston Rockets. Yao said Thursday that he won't know until later this summer if he'll be able to play next season. He becomes a restricted free agent July 1.
Analysis: A stress fracture in the ankle kept Yao out of all but five games last season and he had surgery in January. Yao spoke during a visit to a Houston elementary school. He answered questions in English, and taught the children to say ``good morning'' in his native Chinese.
Jan. 7 12:16 PM PT1:16 PM MT2:16 PM CT3:16 PM ET20:16 GMT4:16 AM 北京时间1:16 PM MST3:16 PM EST0:16 UAE (+1)20:1615:16 ET - Magic center Dwight Howard expressed empathy for Yao, saying the Houston big man may come back from his last injury to soon and that he hopes he returns to the NBA soon. "I just want him to get healthy - that's it,'' Howard said. ``I think a lot of people try to pressure him to get back as soon as possible. Once you're away from the game for a while, you always try to rush and get back. And I think that's what he did.''
Analysis: The 30-year-old Yao, who is actually 7-6 and about 310 pounds, had surgery Thursday to repair a stress fracture in his left foot that could threaten his basketball career.
Dec. 21 1:12 PM PT2:12 PM MT3:12 PM CT4:12 PM ET21:12 GMT5:12 AM 北京时间2:12 PM MST4:12 PM EST1:12 UAE (+1)21:1216:12 ET - The Houston Rockets have asked the NBA for a disabled player salary cap exception in the wake of Yao's season-ending ankle injury.
Analysis: Yao has been out since Nov. 10 with a stress fracture in his left ankle. The seven-time All-Star, who missed all of last season following reconstructive foot surgery, appeared in only five games this year before getting hurt again. The disabled player exception would allow the Rockets to acquire a free agent, or trade for a player without having to match salaries, up to the value of the midlevel exception (about $5.75 million).
Nov. 10 6:25 PM PT7:25 PM MT8:25 PM CT9:25 PM ET2:25 GMT10:25 AM 北京时间7:25 PM MST9:25 PM EST6:25 UAE (+1)02:2521:25 ET - Yao underwent surgery Thursday to repair a stress fracture in his left ankle, a procedure he says may end his career.
Analysis: The 7-foot-6 Yao has been out since Nov. 10, and played in only five games this season before the team declared him lost for the season. The seven-time All-Star missed all of last season following reconstructive foot surgery. In all, Yao has sat out 91 games in four seasons spanning 2005-09. He missed only five games in the 2008-09 season, then broke his left foot in the playoffs.
Nov. 6 4:03 PM PT5:03 PM MT6:03 PM CT7:03 PM ET23:03 GMT7:03 AM 北京时间4:03 PM MST6:03 PM EST3:03 UAE (+1)23:0319:03 ET - The winless Houston Rockets will not play Yao against the San Antonio Spurs on Saturday night.
Analysis: With the Rockets playing the first of back-to-back games, coach Rick Adelman said Yao has a more favorable matchup Sunday against Minnesota than trying to defend San Antonio's pick-and-roll offense. The coaching staff is putting strict limits on Yao's minutes to try and keep the injury-plagued star healthy a full season. The 7-foot-6 center is averaging 12.7 points and 7.3 rebounds.
Oct. 30 8:45 PM PT9:45 PM MT10:45 PM CT11:45 PM ET3:45 GMT11:45 AM 北京时间8:45 PM MST10:45 PM EST7:45 UAE (+1)04:4523:45 ET - Yao scored 14 points and grabbed six rebounds in a 107-94 loss to Denver on Saturday.
Analysis: Yao returned to the lineup after missing Wednesday's loss to Golden State as a precautionary measure.
Oct. 28 9:41 PM PT10:41 PM MT11:41 PM CT12:41 AM ET4:41 GMT12:41 PM 北京时间9:41 PM MST11:41 PM EST8:41 UAE05:410:41 ET - Yao did not play in Wednesday's 132-128 loss at Golden State.
Analysis: The Rockets are being very careful with the Chinese superstar, who missed all of last season after foot surgery.
Oct. 27 10:25 PM PT11:25 PM MT12:25 AM CT1:25 AM ET5:25 GMT1:25 PM 北京时间10:25 PM MST12:25 AM EST9:25 UAE06:251:25 ET - Yao had nine points and 11 rebounds in a 112-110 loss at the Lakers on Tuesday night before fouling out with 6:30 left in his first NBA game since the 2009 playoffs, also against the Lakers.
Analysis: The Chinese center missed last season after surgery on his left foot, and is playing limited minutes as a result. That will also limit his fantasy value so owners should be aware.
Oct. 16 7:22 AM PT8:22 AM MT9:22 AM CT10:22 AM ET14:22 GMT10:22 PM 北京时间7:22 AM MST9:22 AM EST18:22 UAE15:2210:22 ET - Yao scored 10 in front of the home crowd Saturday in China to help the Houston Rockets beat the New Jersey Nets 95-85 in a preseason game.
Analysis: The game was a local showcase for Yao, who is easing back from foot surgery after sitting out last season. The center looked sharp under the basket with several deft hook shots during 18 minutes on the court. When he wasn't playing, he spent his time on the sideline riding an exercise bike.
Sep. 24 2:16 PM PT3:16 PM MT4:16 PM CT5:16 PM ET21:16 GMT5:16 AM 北京时间2:16 PM MST4:16 PM EST1:16 UAE (+1)22:1617:16 ET - Just call Ming the Houston Rockets' ``Big Unknown.'' The All-Star center said Friday, the day before the Rockets open training camp, that he's still not sure what to expect from himself this season after foot surgery in July 2009 sidelined him all of last year.
Analysis: Yao was cleared by team doctor Tom Clanton to resume basketball activities a month ago. His reconstructed left foot has held up fine in individual workouts and scrimmages, but the true tests will come when the Rockets start playing exhibition games. Houston opens its preseason against Orlando on Oct. 5.
Sep. 16 12:11 PM PT1:11 PM MT2:11 PM CT3:11 PM ET19:11 GMT3:11 AM 北京时间12:11 PM MST2:11 PM EST23:11 UAE20:1115:11 ET - The Houston Chronicle is reporting that Yao will be limited to 24 minutes a game.
Analysis: Rockets athletic trainer Keith Jones told the newspaper that the only exception may happen in the playoffs. The plan is designed to limit the possibility of a foot injury to the Chinese center, who missed all of last season.
Aug. 24 11:14 AM PT12:14 PM MT1:14 PM CT2:14 PM ET18:14 GMT2:14 AM 北京时间11:14 AM MST1:14 PM EST22:14 UAE19:1414:14 ET - Ming is confident that he'll be ready for the start of the regular season after a team doctor said his surgically repaired foot has fully healed. Yao missed last season after undergoing complex surgery on his left foot. Team doctor Tom Clanton has cleared Yao to resume basketball activities with no physical limitations.
Analysis: Yao went through a rigorous workout for reporters at the Toyota Center on Tuesday. He worked on his post moves with teammate Chuck Hayes and 7-footer James Cripe, a player in the NBA's developmental league. General manager Daryl Morey says the team will be cautious with Yao and limit his minutes early in the season. The Rockets open training camp on Sept. 25. They will travel to China in mid-October for two preseason games against New Jersey.
July 27 9:29 AM PT10:29 AM MT11:29 AM CT12:29 PM ET16:29 GMT12:29 AM 北京时间9:29 AM MST11:29 AM EST20:29 UAE17:2912:29 ET - Yao is considering quitting basketball after next season if he doesn't fully recover from his lingering foot injury.
Analysis: In comments to Chinese state media Monday, Yao sounded far from optimistic about his future and also made a rare criticism of China's national basketball program. "If the foot injury does not heal next season, I might choose to call it quits," he said. Yao turns 30 in September and missed last season following foot surgery. He is set to return to the Rockets after deciding not to opt out of the final year of his contract.
