Yao Ming will sit out entire 2009-10 season

Yao Ming will not be playing this season.  Oddly enough, this is a good thing.

From the AP:

"The (X-ray) picture looks good. The bones heal well," he said in an interview with Houston television station KRIV.

He also said, however, that there is no chance that he will play in the 2009-10 NBA season.

"The answer is no. You don't want to rush it, because they want it to totally heal this time. I have been in this situation enough," he said.

Good decision on The Great Wall's part.  Look forward to seeing him in tip-top shape next year.
