More ups and downs for China's men's basketball team in its latest training session at the World Championships. The squad got some good news about star Yi Jianlian before taking-on Lithuania.
Yi confirmed he'll be back in the lineup for China's next challenge against the European side. There was a big question if Yi would return to the championships after sustaining an achilles' injury in Turkey. The Washington Wizards star first felt pain in China's match against Puerto Rico and aggravated the injury against Russia. Now he's doing strength training. Yi had this to say when asked about his status for the first knockout round game versus Lithuania.
Yi Jianlian said, "My injury should be fine, I will show up against Lithuania."
