Yi to undergo additional medical exams on injured right wrist

Bucks rookie forward Yi Jianlian, who missed Milwaukee's game against Seattle on Wednesday because of a sprained left ankle, flew to Los Angeles on Thursday for additional medical examinations on an injured right wrist.

Bucks general manager Larry Harris said Yi would have the wrist looked at by two different doctors to suplement a diagnosis by the team's medical staff.

Among the possible remedies for the lingering injury is surgery, which would end Yi's season. But Harris said, "It's too early to speculate."

The injury adds to the concerns of the Chinese national basketball team, which is already hoping center Yao Ming will be recovered from surgery for a stress fracture in his foot in time for the Olympic Games in Beijing in August.

Yi is averaging 8.9 points and 5.3 rebounds for the Bucks this season. In his past five games he has made only two of 12 field goals and scored a total of 10 points.
