Yao Ming Injured During the Rockets-Clippers Game [Michael Vinciguerra]

During the first quarter of the basketball game between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers, Yao Ming fractured the bone under his right knee after attempting to block a shot. Yao's knee became caught under Tim Thomas' body and Yao instantly grabbed his knee in pain.

That looks like the face of a man in serious pain. Yao is expected to miss at least six weeks, but thats nothing compared to how badly the Rockets will miss him. Six-time all star, Tracy McGrady, has already sat out the past seven games with back spasms. Yao was leading the Rockets in points, rebounds, and blocks per game
