Carlos Delfino Underwent Foot Surgery

It turns out that Carlos Delfino’s self-diagnosis wasn’t quite on the money — the Milwaukee Bucks swingman underwent surgery in his native Argentina, and is expected to miss at least 8 more weeks. Per the Journal Sentinel: “The Bucks provided an update Saturday afternoon to report Delfino had undergone a successful procedure at Sanatorio de la Trinidad in San Isidro, Buenos Aires. The surgery was performed by Donato Villani, the Argentinean soccer national team physician. Villani was assisted by doctors Javier Swiatio and Pablo Pachervsky, with Bucks team doctors Michael Gordon and Samuel Idarraga present at the surgery. The 31-year-old Delfino will have his right foot immobilized and be placed on non-weight bearing restrictions for a period of eight weeks. Delfino suffered a fractured bone in his foot in a first-round playoff series against Oklahoma City and had a setback in his recovery shortly before the Bucks opened training camp. He was in a walking boot when camp started. Delfino posted this message on his personal web site in Spanish and English: ‘Thank all of you for the support during this hard time. Now is time to start the way back and just think the bad is over and only good vibes are coming. It is going to be a long way back but I can’t wait to get back on the court. Thanks to everyone.'”
