Carlos Delfino suffers injury setback, out indefinitely
Bucks forward suffered injury setback in pre-camp, originally broke his foot in playoff game for Houston.
Delfino fractured his right foot while playing for Houston in Game 5 of the Rockets' first-round playoff series against Oklahoma City last April. Signed to a two-year deal with a team option for a third season this summer, the 31-year-old was still in a walking boot at the team's annual media day Monday.
"I had a fracture five months ago and I had surgery," Delfino said. "I had a little setback the last couple of days. We don't have a timeframe. They are taking pictures and we're going to know more in the next couple of days. I can't wait to get on the court."
"I don't really like to talk about this injury because I was playing injured for a month," Delfino said. "Most of the injury was probably my fault because I tried to play five or six weeks with a fractured bone in my foot . . . I tried to dunk and it just cracked."
Delfino is a pretty big piece of the Bucks' puzzle this year and missing him is going to give them problems. In the short term, it means more minutes for rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo and probably some big lineups with John Henson or Ersan Ilyasova there. They'll miss his ability to stretch the floor and create in transition.
Delfino, 31, averaged 11 points and three rebounds last season in Houston.
