Report: Olajuwon won't return to action this year
In one devastating blow, Hakeem Olajuwon reportedly will not return to action this season. Hakeem had missed the previous few games with a calf injury but an MRI revealed blood clots in his lower leg and the Dream is over in 2000-2001. He will not return to NBA action for 3 to 6 months. It opens a floodgate of questions concerning the Rockets' playoff hopes and if Olajuwon has played his final game in a Rockets uniform and his final game in the NBA period. "We won't ever close the door," said Rockets GM Carroll Dawson. The Houston Chronicle writes that the blood condition could end Olajuwon's career.
