Random Yi News

Tuesday, February 10, 2009

Just thought I'd post some Yi Jianlian news:

Yi Jianlian, whose absence opened the path for Anderson to start, was shooting again, this time with even less padding on his broken right pinkie. He says there is still some pain, a little stiffness but seemed very optimistic.

"It still hurts a little, the movement is almost there," said Yi who claims his return is after the break. "The doctors said after the All-Star break but we'll see."
Great to hear and you hope to see Yi in the NBA for the long run - whether or not he'll be in NJ is anyone's guess though now that Amare is on the blocks and Yi could be offered up in possible package if any of the rumors are true.
