 What happened to the Chinese players who suffered from fatal injuries?

This game eventually became Yao Mings last career event. On July 20, 2011, Yao Ming held a press conference to officially announce his retirement. The greatest giant in the history of Chinese basketball and even Asian basketball has completely fallen due to the injury of the short Achilles tendon, leaving too many regrets.

In addition to Yao Ming, Wang Zhizhi and Liu Yudong, both of them from Bayi Mens Basketball Team, are also typical injuries, including Achilles tendon injuries. Although Wang Zhizhi had never suffered such a serious rupture of the Achilles tendon, his foot was a disaster area of injury, which was closely related to the Achilles tendon injury caused by his long campaign. Liu Yudongs removal of 10 pieces of broken bones from his knee is well known to all, but his Achilles tendon injury in 2003 has also been little known. Liu Yudong in the later stage of his career, in fact, has been carrying Achilles tendon injuries and insisting on fighting.

Li Xiaoxu has contributed 11.1 points and 8.7 rebounds in the previous season. As a blue-collar player, he is good enough. Especially his strong offensive rebound control ability won the title of domestic warcraft. Li Xiaoxus serious injury not only cast a shadow on his career prospects, but also dealt a fatal blow to Liaonings Championship plan.

After a season of recuperation, Li Xiaoxu, who re-entered the 2017-18 season, found his own rhythm after a period of adjustment. Although his number of shots and contribution to scoring decreased significantly compared with that before injury, he still contributed a lot to the top defense and rebound in the interior and won the championship for Liaoning Team. Li Xiaoxus form improved further in the 2018-19 season, averaging 8.2 points and 5.9 rebounds per game. Li Xiaoxu, who fought against fate tenaciously, can be called the rebirth of bathing fire.

Li Muhao

In the next few seasons, although Li Muhaos Achilles tendon did not suffer serious injuries, his old injuries have not been completely cured. They often recur in the course of the League matches, which also affects Li Muhaos personal space to rise. In CBAs performance, the rules and regulations, in the national team is only marginal status, Achilles tendon has become Li Muhaos hard injury, maybe the transition to extend his career, is Li Muhaos better choice.


Despite the importance of taking into account his position in the team, the Shenzhen teams management was not anxious to get him back. It was not until the start of the new season in 2018-19 that it was fully rested. Although his average score of 14.4 points per game was lower than the previous years average of 18 points per game, the percentage of three-point shooting (40% to 44%) and the number of rebounds (3.3 to 4.8) increased. For athletesscientific protection and rehabilitation treatment, the three-point killer is not inferior to the past.

Hu Xuefeng

Hu Xuefeng was one of the most outstanding young guards in the Chinese Mens Basketball Team. In CBAs first season, he averaged 9.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.8 assists. In the second year, he was named the best new recruit in CBA. But when he joined the national team in 2001, he suffered a turning point in his fate. He was diagnosed with a complete tear of the patellar ligament. At that time, the doctor even gave advice to Hu Xuefeng to end his career. After more than a year of truce, Hu Xuefeng was injured in the first round of 2002-03 season by Gong Xiaobin, Shandong interior line, sitting on his knee. This time, he suffered a tear of the knee cruciate ligament.

Zou Yuchen

The original rising career prospects were interrupted, Zou Yuchen missed the entire 2017-18 season, and then suffered secondary ligament tear in the summer of 2018 to continue the season reimbursement. Now nearly two years have passed since Zou Yuchen was injured for the first time. Zou Yuchen has never returned to the arena. There are more rumors that he may retire from the sport. Cruciate ligament injury, the devil faced by athletes, cast a shadow on Zou Yuchens career prospects.

As one of the achievements of Guangdong Mens Basketball Youth Training System, the career of Grade 95 guard Yang Jinmeng also changed because of Achilles tendon injury. In his third season of promotion to the Guangdong First Team, Yang Jinmengben has entered the teams rotation team, but he suffered a torn Achilles tendon in his left ankle in February 2018 and was reimbursed for the whole season. Before CBA started last season, Yang Jinmeng and other teammates were packaged and traded to Qingdao. Knowing that he had been abandoned by the team, he went to Zhu Fangyu, general manager of the club, and asked if the team had lost confidence because of the Achilles tendon problem. Although Zhu Fangyu consoled him repeatedly, it was an irreversible fact that Yang Jinmeng was traded, and his career trajectory was changed accordingly.
