Breaking: Rockets' Yao Ming Hurt, Out For Playoffs

Update: The NBA has now confirmed this report.

John Schuhmann, NBA.com writer, just tweeted that Yao Ming is out for the rest of the NBA Playoffs. Yao-ch! Houston, you have a problem. From his Twitter feed:

Yao has small hairline fracture in left foot, Rockets just announced. Out for Playoffs.

Bad news for Yao and Rockets fans, but good news for our Lakers. LSL wishes Yao a speedy recovery and says bring on the Nuggets! I think we can eliminate Houston in five games now for sure, so let’s hope the Mavs can win game four at home and extend that series to at least five games.
