Chinese NBA superstar Yao Ming is injured again, and the Houston Rockets now revealed that the 7-6 center might end his professional basketball career, as reported at Houston Chronicles on Thursday.

On a news post by Jerome Solomon, the Rockets announced that Yao Ming suffered a stress fracture in his left ankle, according to the latest MRI, in which no one can say if he will be able to play again.

Apparently, the doctors believed that the injury is somehow related to Ming’s previous injury in the 2009 playoffs that caused him not to play in the entire 2009-10 season.

Yao Ming with another stress fracture in his left ankle. Not in same bone, but same ankle. Wondering now if he’ll ever return.” Jonathan Feigen of Houston Chronicles tweets on Thursday.

“This is a very disappointing moment in the history of the Rockets organization, for our wonderful fans, for the city of Houston and for everybody in our organization. I feel terrible for Yao.” Rockets owner Leslie Alexander told the local news.

Yao Ming is now on the final year of contract with the Rockets, and some people apparently believe that his tenure on his team is likely to end.

The 30-year old Chinese basketball superstar was the first pick of Houston Rockets in 2002, has been in and out of NBA games due to injury including a six-month rest at the end of the 2005-2006 season.
