Regarding the regretful departure from the team, Yi Jianlian said: “From the injury in August last year to the present, he has undergone three operations on both legs and has been recovering until now. In fact, the progress has been very satisfactory, but after all, there has been no training for a long time, just two weeks. Participating in team training, I feel that the requirements for the competition have not yet been met. This year is more difficult due to the epidemic. There is no warm-up competition for this competition, and there is no pre-preparation, so I will go out to compete, so the competitive state of the competition It’s not reached yet. (Withdrawing from the team) Regret is very regrettable, but no matter whether it is going to the game or not playing with the team, I feel that I am still a member of the Chinese men’s basketball team. I hope that the team can have a good performance in this game. .”

I couldn’t run and jump at all levels. I couldn’t participate in this competition. I played so much. For the second national team, I sincerely thank the coaching staff and the Basketball Association for giving me so many opportunities. Although I cannot participate in this game, my heart is still with my teammates and coaches. I will always support them to play well.”
