WASHINGTON (AP) -Houston Rockets center Yao Ming was back in the starting lineup Friday night against the Washington Wizards after missing one game with a sore left foot.
Yao missed Wednesday's 96-86 loss to Dallas after hurting his foot against Oklahoma City on Monday. He underwent tests on Tuesday and Wednesday that revealed no structural damage.
For the Wizards, guard Antonio Daniels was on the active list but did not start after missing three straight games with a sore right ankle. JaVale McGee and Dee Brown, who made their first NBA starts Wednesday against Atlanta, were again in coach Eddie Jordan's starting five.
