Rockets' GM Daryl Morey Still Optimistic Regarding Yao's future

Yao Ming sounded pessimistic regarding his future in the NBA due to a possible nagging foot injury, but Rockets’ General Manager Daryl Morey tweeted that he’s optimistic regarding Yao’s health for the upcoming season.

Yao Ming is working diligently on his return and has consistently received positive feedback at each of his scheduled medical checkups.

He is currently participating in on-court basketball workouts & we continue to expect him to be ready for training camp which begins on 9/25

It’s interesting that there seems to be a rather different outlook when comparing the player’s ideas to the team’s, but hopefully Morey is right on this one.
