Default Injuries at center impact Nets/Rockets

Not a good holiday season for the Nets or Rockets with Nenad Krstic out for the season with a torn knee ligament & Yao Ming out for roughly 6 weeks with a broken bone under his kneecap. Add McGrady's absense & the Rockets are really hurtin'...

Regardless of what some say, it's still a big man's game & both teams will suffer greatly. It's especially a shame since Yao started so strong & seemed ready to cement his status as the premier big man but his history of injuries is starting to make you wonder if he's really up to the task...

The Rockets are screwed. They were in playoff contention because T-Mac had taken a back seat to Yao.

The Nets were sucking it up this year anyway so I don't know that they will miss Kristic all that much.

True... but the Nets will still probably make the playoffs (good Lord) and you need bodies against Shaq (when he returns) and Ben.

Kristic in this sense is merely a body.

I wonder if he has that on his resume?
