Yao Ming leaves game with leg injury

Joel Przybilla Yao Ming

Yao Ming played physical basketball, the only way he really knows how. And the results seemed sadly familiar, if not that serious

Yao played 6:14 of the first quarter — having a couple run ins with JaVale McGee of the Washington Wizards — and he left at that point with a tendon injury.  The run ins were one time going for a rebound and once trying to draw a charge on McGee.

How serious the injury is and if Yao could miss time has yet to be determined. Yao missed all of last season with a foot injury, he has returned but with a strict limit on his allowed, and he is out allowed to play in both games of a double header.
