HOUSTON (AP) - Houston center Yao Ming has undergone tests on his sprained left ankle and will be re-evaluated before the Rockets' playoff game against the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday.
Yao had 19 points and 14 rebounds in the Lakers' 108-94 victory Friday night that gave Los Angeles a 2-1 lead in the series. Yao limped off the floor late in the game and said afterward that he had a sore left foot and ankle.
The 7-foot-6 Yao, Houston's leading scorer, had a CT scan on Saturday that showed a sprained left ankle. The team said Yao will receive treatment and will be re-examined on Sunday by team doctor Tom Clanton.
