Carlos Delfino says on his Website he will have foot surgery, likely miss season

Carlos Delfino had foot surgery back in May (he injured it during the Rockets’ playoff series and was expected to miss 4-6 months). However, the Bucks signed him over the summer and the original prognosis made you think he would be suiting up for Milwaukee by training camp. Then that got pushed back to the start of the season or a little later.

Now it may be the entire season due to a second surgery that is required.

That is what Delfino himself posted on his personal Website in Spanish, as translated and reported by the Journal-Sentinel.

Delfino and Bucks team physician Michael Gordon traveled to North Carolina last week to consult with specialists about the injury. And it was determined Delfino will need another surgery to repair a fracture in his right foot, with recovery time estimated at four to six months.

“I’m frustrated because I did all the recovery work but my body did not respond as expected,” Delfino said on his website in remarks translated from Spanish. “I’m still optimistic.

“Now I have to be calm and open to the decision of the professional who can help me in the recovery of my injury. This is worse than I expected but I am sure that I will return to the court.”

The Bucks signed Delfino to a two-year, $6.5 million deal this past summer.

When they realized Delfino could be delayed in his return the Bucks signed Caron Butler to a contract and he has been the starting small forward averaging 12.6 points a game but shooting just 36.8 percent so far.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $20,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Monday, Nov. 11th games. It’s just $10 to join and first prize is $3,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Monday. Here’s the link.

Delfino is a solid NBA rotation player (he averaged 10.6 points a game for the Rockets last season) and a guy the Bucks could really use to provide more depth. But it looks like that is going to have to wait until next season now. In the short term it means more Khris Middleton and maybe rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo.

    1) Delfinos somewhat popular with the international crowd and more so with women
    2) Tons of chicks, women want to jump his bones. Every female I knew drooled over Parsons and Delfino obsessively last postseason.

    It should definitely mean more of the alphabet. Why is he stuck riding the bench? I’m not saying play him 35 minutes a night until his wheels fall off but a consistent 20 minutes should do it. Let the kid play!
