HOUSTON (AP) - Houston Rockets center Yao Ming is expected to miss at least two more weeks because of a bone bruise in his left ankle.

The 7-foot-6 Yao hurt his ankle in Houston’s 98-91 loss to the Washington Wizards on Nov. 10. The Rockets were already limiting the injury-prone center’s minutes to 24 per game as Yao comes back from offseason foot surgery.

Team doctor Tom Clanton said in a statement from the Rockets on Friday that Yao’s left foot is “completely healed and the structural integrity of the foot is intact.”

Yao has averaged 10.2 points and 5.4 rebounds in five games this season. The Rockets (3-8) play in Toronto on Friday night.
