Zydrunas has helped Yao (both had the same foot surgery)

Here’s an interesting video with Yao and Cleveland’s Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who was in Houston for the Cavaliers-Rockets game Wednesday night.

Zydrunas has provided good moral support to Yao ever since Yao learned he was going to have the same surgery on his foot that Zydrunas had, and Yao is obviously thankful. In the video, Big Z tells a little bit of what may be in store for Yao as he gets back to playing in the NBA.

Jonathan Feigen of the Chronicle also recapped the similarity between Zydrunas’ and Yao’s surgery in this story.

    Thanks for the video, John. Even though I would love to have Yao come back at the end of the yr, I hope they just tell him to rest and rehab until next season. I wouldn't be able to take another major foot injury by Yao so I hope this is it.
