Yi Jianlian is shutting it down for a week or so because of mild ankle sprain. Lawrence Frank says that's not necessarily a bad thing since he's had a long summer, preparing for and playing in the Olympics. In an interview on his Chinese blog, Yi admits he needs to "regain his strength". The Nets' forward also talks about what he likes about the New York area, starting with his house-hunting.
