I dont believe Yi is actually 7 feet. Seen him listed at 6'10" or 6'11

He is a big guy though, I think he seems less bulky because he's so athletic. I remember when he dunked over Melo and he seemed to just float in the air.

His first game with with the Texas Legends is on Sunday. D league games used to be streamed, not sure if they still are.

In the NBA, they measure the players WITH shoes on.

NOT TOO SURE about that.

In a CCTV5 interview, he said he probably will play his first game for Texas Legends against Erie BayHawks on January 13.

dallas morning news blog wrote he'd see action on Sunday. they might be still deciding depending on how they feel his injury is coming along but earlier in the day it was reported he was dressing up for Sunday

he's definitely working out at the Legends though. the Mavs seem to be taking things slow with Yi, which is a good sign. the Wizards last year couldn't care less

of course right now there's no pressing need for Yi since they got 2 solid players at the position atm. Carlisle has refused to set a timetable for Yi to start playing for the Mavs
