Yi Ready for the BIG Game

No, not the All-Star Game. Yi Jianlian wants to play before a really big audience, the 200 million plus fans who'll watch the Nets and Yao Ming's Rockets next Tuesday in Houston. Yi tells the Nets' Ben Couch that he expects to get clearance Friday when he next visits the doctor. He'll still have to play with two fingers taped together, but he says the injury helped him learn to use his left hand better.
