The Houston Rockets just can't catch a break.

Winners of 12 straight and just three games behind the West-leading Lakers, Houston will have to play the rest of its season without All-Star center Yao Ming, who has a stress fracture in his left foot.

Yao will miss both the regular season and the postseason, should the Rockets make it that far.

After missing just two games in his first three years in the league, Yao has been injury prone of late, playing in 57 games in the 2005-06 season, and 48 games last year. In 55 games this season, Yao was averaging 22 points and just under 11 rebounds per game.

Yeah terrible news for Yao & the Rockets. I think they will have to battle now to make the playoffs despite having a big cushion.

Also you have to wonder about Yao's ability to stay healthy- perhaps his size naturally puts too much pressure on his legs and feet.

man that sucks for the Rockets and their fans. they just picked up B Jackson and were playing really well together as a team. maybe next year for them.

the guys a big boy and you know that amount of weight takes a toll on his feet everyday, at practice, during games, workouts, etc... Big loss for Houston... maybe now T-Mac will step up his game and play to his abilities..
