Doctors: Yao limited to 24 minutes per game

There's word coming from Yao Ming's surgeons that he will be limited to 24 minutes a game with absolutely no exceptions. The Rockets knew they'd limit him this season because of the foot surgery and fear more stress on it could take him out again. In back to backs, he likely won't play at all in the second game and his practice will be toned down.

They want him around at the end of the season.
