Yi Sprains Right Foot in Practice - Not Serious

New, comments

Yi Jianlian sprained his right foot during Team China practice Tuesday, but team officials and Yi said the injury isn't serious and Yi resumed practice after being treated with ice. The sprain won't prevent the seven footer from playing Thursday against India in the first round of the FIBA Asia Cup. Yi landed awkwardly on the foot of a teammate early in practice. One official called the injury "a false alarm".
