Recently, Zhu Fangyu, general manager of the Guangdong Men's Basketball Team, accepted an interview with CCTV Sports during the recording of the program "This Is Slam Dunk 3". During the interview, Zhu Fangyu revealed Yi Jianlian's injury.
"As for the new season, Yi Jianlian will definitely be absent. He is still in the United States and is recovering from his injuries. Of course, we hope that he will return to our team this season in a completely healthy and recovering attitude, but it is true. He is seriously injured. Therefore, we also hope that everyone will encourage him to support him more so that he can recover as soon as possible and return to the CBA arena." Zhu Fangyu said.
