Yao Ming will undergo surgery next week to repair the hairline fracture in his left foot, likely ending speculation that he will play in the upcoming NBA season.

The surgery will include a bone graft and a realignment of the bones in his left foot. The Rockets haven't given a timetable on his return date, but since the NBA granted them a disabled player exception, all indications are that he will not play in a single game. He also recently purchased his former team in Shanghai, but has said that's not a move toward retirement. Jul. 17 - 1:08 pm et
