China forward Yi Jianlian will miss Tuesday night’s contest against Team USA due to an undisclosed injury.
Yi is China’s most recognizable player to NBA fans. He was the 6th overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks, but he could never live up to the hype. Yi’s last NBA stint was 30 games off the bench for the Dallas Mavericks in the 2011-2012 season at the age of 24. Since that time, Yi has successfully played in the CBA for the Guangdong Southern Tigers, where is the defending domestic regular season MVP between 2013-2016. Thus concludes your “where are they now?” segment.
