I think the Sportsline summary of the injury made it sound more definitive than it is. They said they got their info from the NY Times, which just talked about the similarity of the injury, but was written yesterday before today's MRI was performed (don't know if that's been done yet, and if so, when the results will be announced).
But here's the NY Times story (or at least part thereof) that the Sportsline blurb is based on....
The Yankees called the injury a sprained right foot, and they will hope for the best until Wang has a magnetic resonance imaging test in New York on Monday. But the early signs are grim.
The injury is to the top of Wang’s foot, the same general area that reliever Brian Bruney injured when he tripped while covering first base in April. Bruney was found to have a Lisfranc injury and is expected to miss a minimum of three months.
Wang has symptoms of the same injury, including swelling and the inability to bear weight on the foot; he left Minute Maid Park on crutches, in a soft cast. Bruney’s injury was in the middle of the foot, and Wang’s is believed to be in the webbing of his toes, between his big toe and second toe.
“I feel sore,” Wang said in a statement to the Yankees’ media relations director, Jason Zillo. “The doctor says I have to go to get an M.R.I. tomorrow. Of course I’m disappointed.”
If Wang is out for the year, the Yankees are done for the season. Their best-case scenario would become 3rd in the division.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
