As expected, Yao’s right knee was fine at practice today. There was no swelling or pain. It was just a little sore, and it shouldn’t stop him from playing in Game 2. His trainers wanted to put ice on the knee as a precaution, at which time he joked, “Oh no, not the C-cups again.”

When he was asked what kind of defensive changes the Lakers would make on him in Game 2, he joked that he would call his friend Sun Yue (from the Chinese National team who is also on the Lakers roster) to find out.
