Agent: Retirement for Yao? Not so fast
By Chen Xiangfeng (China Daily)
Updated: 2009-07-01 09:17

Reports that a severe foot injury will end NBA all-star center Yao Ming's career have been quickly dismissed by his agent.

"I heard some reports say Yao's career might be over due to the worsening injury," said Zhang Mingji, who goes by the name of Eric Zhang in the United States. "I don't think it's the right time to say that.

"I can assure you the (Houston) Rockets have never come to a conclusion concerning Yao's career."

Zhang, however, did admit that the previous treatment on the superstar's broken left foot did not work as hoped.

"Obviously, the treatment on Yao's injury was not effective. The team is considering adopting new treatments. But it's yet to be determined."

The China Basketball Administrative Center said it's been informed of the news but a chief official assumed it would not rule Yao out of the World Championships next year.

On Monday, Houston Rockets team physician Tom Clanton told the Houston Chronicle that the Chinese superstar's broken left foot could cause the popular sports figure to miss all of next season and could be a "career-threatening" injury. Clanton pointed out that the injury in Yao's left foot has worsened.

Agent: Yao's next move to be known in a week

Injury-plagued Houston Rockets all-star center Yao Ming will have to wait a week to see if he again requires surgery on his broken left foot, according to his agent Zhang Mingji.

"It's yet to be decided," Zhang, who goes by the name of Eric Zhang in the United States, told Sina.com. "Yao is still under examination right now. We will not rush to a decision before collecting enough information from the examinations.

"I think it will take about a week to make the final decision. Having surgery or not - all different treatments are being considered right now."

Zhang's response differed to NBA.com writer Fran Blinebury, who claimed yesterday the 7-foot-6 giant was to go back under the knife.

"Now, after consulting with the Rockets' medical staff and a handful of specialists on the East Coast, a decision has been made to have Yao undergo surgery once more to repair the stress fracture in the tarsal navicular bone of his left foot," Bllinebury wrote. "What has not yet been determined is the exact method for the repair."

I am extremely tired of watching Tiger Woods, the Willams and Federer and want them to retire instead.   I have no doubt many of you would have the same ...
