Now that Yao is off crutches, he has been able to get out more often. On Wednesday night, he appeared at the Rockets’ game against the Warriors to cheer his teammates on.

Then on Thursday, Yao appeared at Toyota Center along with other Rocket teammates to thank season ticket holders for their patronage.

Yao also told reporters that he will be traveling with the team on their next road trip when they play Miami, Philadelphia and New Jersey. This road trip is obviously huge since it will have a big bearing on if the Rockets make the playoffs or not, so it’s good to see that Yao will be supporting his teammates even though he isn’t required to go.
