HOUSTON - All-Star center Yao Ming is out for the season with a stress fracture in his left foot, a stunning blow to the surging Houston Rockets.

Yao was having a terrific season, averaging 22 points and 10.8 rebounds per game. Healing should take about four months and he is not expected to miss the Beijing Olympics in August.

MAGIC 102, NETS 92: Hedo Turkoglu scored 17 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter as Orlando won its third straight game.

Rashard Lewis added 25 points, and Dwight Howard had his 50th double-double of the season.
