Yeah. I wonder if the smaller bones don't develop at the same rate as the rest of the body and can't take the stress.Enjoy your retirement Yao. In basketball it seems like the really tall guys (6'9" and over) have the most problems with their feet and ankles (Ex. Larry Bird, Kevin McHale, Bill Walton).
