Yi Jianlian was “very upset” about Yao’s injury, and other quotes

This Washington Post article has some good quotes from the Wizards’ Yi Jianlian about his thoughts on Yao’s latest injury. When asked about his reaction when he first heard about it, he said:

“I was very upset about it.”

Asked if he would like to see Yao play again, Yi responded:

“I hope so. I really hope so. Me, all the fans in China, we really hope that he gets back on the court.”

About Yao coming back:

“People always talking that he may not come back. But I think for a player like him, he has a pretty strong heart. It would be tough. I don’t think he’ll just walk away, you know. He’ll leave it alone, let it get healthy, see how it goes. But he’s got to take care of his foot and get everything well.”
