|Carlos Delfino's season in doubt with surgery looming |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(11/11/13) Rockets forward Carlos Delfino has yet to play this season, and though it's still early, he may end up missing the entirety of the season as a result of a preseason foot surgery. Delfino wrote a blog post on his personal website (translated into English from Spanish by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel) that makes clear he may not be able to play this season while recovering.
"I'm frustrated because I did all the recovery work but my body did not respond as expected," Delfino wrote. "I'm still optimistic."
Delfino suffered an injury to his right foot in last year's playoffs that required surgery. He suffered a setback in his recovery during training camp, and a second opinion last week determined he will need to undergo another surgery to repair a fracture in his right foot that will keep him out four to six months.

(11/10/13) Bucks guard Carlos Delfino is out four to six months after suffering a setback in his recovery from foot surgery, CarlosDelfino.com reports.
Delfino fractured the foot during last season's playoffs and is now in danger of missing the entire 2013-14 season after the setback.

(11/7/13) Bucks guard Carlos Delfino had an appointment with a doctor Thursday, the Racine Journal reports. Delfino hopes to get the go ahead to start practicing with the team for the first time this season as he's recovering from foot surgery.
Milwaukee still has no established timetable for Delfino's return to the court, but practicing should be considered one of the first steps.

(10/25/13) Bucks forward Carlos Delfino, who is recovering from right foot surgery, still has no timetable, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. It will take a long period for him to return to the lineup, according to the report.
"We've had to make adjustments," head coach Larry Drew said. "It's not ideal to come into a situation with a new coach, new system and 11 new players and have so many guys out."

(10/1/13) Bucks forward Carlos Delfino showed up for media day in a walking boot, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Tuesday.
Delfino fractured a bone in his right foot in Game 5 of the Rockets' first-round playoff series last year, but also said he was playing with a hairline fracture in his foot for more than a month at the end of last season.
"I had a fracture five months ago and I had surgery," Delfino said. "I had a little setback the last couple days. We don't have a time frame. They're taking pictures and we're going to know more in the next couple days. I can't wait to get on the court."
|Carlos Delfino has long been one of the better long-range gunners in the NBA, and he took it to a new level last season. He remains more of a league-average shooter who gains his value through high-volume shooting, and he averaged a career-high 6.3 3-pointers per game with Houston. He returns to Milwaukee this season, where he spent three seasons from 2009-2012, and he might be in for a bit of a disappointing campaign from a Fantasy perspective. The Rockets were one of the NBA’s all-time best three-point shooting teams, and he fit in perfectly with their offensive philosophy, and the Bucks will likely reign him in a bit more. Delfino has averaged 10.6 points and 2.0 3-pointers per game over the last four seasons, and should be in line for similar numbers this season. Consider targeting him in the mid-to-late rounds
