Yao Ming to Play Limited Minutes All Season

According to the Houston Chronicle, Rockets trainer Keith Jones says that Yao Ming will be limited to 24 minutes a game for the entire season.

The Breakdown
If Yao is not going to crack 30 minutes a game, his value really drops. In addition, the Rockets are planning to keep Yao out of the second game of a back-to-back, at least in the early going. Things are not looking good for Yao returning as a top fantasy center.

With this news, we will have to reevaluate Yao's position in our Top 150 Rankings. With limited minutes and given the injury risk, Yao isn't worth a pick in the top 100 in this point. He'll likely fall to the latter stages of a standard league draft.
