Yao Ming's foot has given him problems throughout his NBA career.

Houston Rockets center Yao Ming is confident
he'll be ready for the start of the NBA season after a team doctor
said his surgically repaired foot has healed.

Yao missed last season after undergoing surgery on his left
foot. Team doctor Tom Clanton has cleared Yao to resume basketball
activities with no physical limitations.

Yao went through a rigorous workout for reporters at the Toyota
Center on Tuesday. He worked on his post moves with teammate Chuck
Hayes and James Cripe, a player in the NBA's developmental league.

General manager Daryl Morey says the team will be cautious with
Yao and limit his minutes early in the season. The Rockets open
training camp on Sept. 25. They will travel to China in mid-October
for two preseason games against New Jersey.
