Milwaukee Bucks guard Carlos Delfino is still recovering from right-foot fracture surgery.

Milwaukee Bucks guard Carlos Delfino is still recovering from right-foot fracture surgery.

To start things off, the Bucks released an update about Delfino's right foot sugery on Dec. 14 on their official website:

"Milwaukee Bucks General Manager John Hammond announced that guard Carlos Delfino (6-6, 220) underwent successful surgery this morning on his right foot. The surgery was performed at Sanatorio de la Trinidad in San Isidro, Buenos Aires, by Dr. Donato Villani, Argentinian National Team physician, who specializes in in orthopaedics and traumatology.

"Dr. Villani was assisted by Dr. Javier Swiatlo and Dr. Pablo Pechervsky, with Bucks team physicians Dr. Michael Gordon and Dr. Samuel Idarrage present."

Charles F. Gardner of The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel notes on Dec. 19 that Delfino sustained the right-foot bone fracture during the 2013 playoffs while playing for the Houston Rockets. Initial surgery took place in May, he adds. 

Delfino signed a two-year, $6.5 million deal with Milwaukee over the summer, per Gardner. 

The Bucks guard spoke with Gardner in a telephone interview to give an update on his latest surgery:

"I'm really happy what he (Dr. Villani) did in the surgery room. He took off a plate and two screws that were creating a lot of pain. Now he put in another screw in a different way, at a different angle. 

"It's supposed to fix the bones that were apart. I'm going to see him today."

Delfino "did not want to speculate" on the issue of him taking the court again this season. When the time comes, the Bucks guard hopes to be in perfect health once again.

"We will see. Sometimes it's different experiences. When you have this kind of surgery, some people say six months. Some people say three months. 

"I think it's depending on the situations and how the body reacts. We don't have any time. I'm not going to rush again. 

"I want to be on the court and not limping. I've been to so many doctors. Once I get to the court, I want to make sure I'm going to be there and not have a setback again. My hope is to be back on the court 100 percent." 

Andrew Wagner of The Associated Press also points out "the Bucks have had nine players miss a total of 88 games due to injury, leading coach Larry Drew to use 13 different lineups." 

The injury bug is the main reason why Milwaukee has limped off to an Eastern Conference-worst 5-20 record. 

As for the 31-year-old Delfino, he is an eight-year NBA veteran who has averaged 8.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.7 assists for his career, according to ESPN stats
