Delfino did not speculate on whether he would be able to return this season. "We will see," Delfino said. "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%." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Bucks coach Larry Drew said following Friday's home loss to Chicago that guard-forward Carlos Delfino would undergo surgery on Saturday in his native Argentina. The 6-foot-6 Delfino has not played for the Bucks this season following an injury he suffered in the playoffs with Houston last season. Delfino suffered a fractured bone in his right foot and had a setback in his recovery shortly before the Bucks opened training camp. He was in a walking boot when camp started.

About a month ago Delfino released a statement on his personal web site saying he would be out for the rest of the season. The Bucks have never confirmed that or made an official statement on his status until Drew's remarks Friday night. "Right now I know the surgery is scheduled (for Saturday) and we'll see how that goes," Drew said. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Bucks forward Carlos Delfino posted on his personal website Sunday that his foot injury will require additional surgery and it is likely he will miss the entire 2013-'14 season. Delfino injured his right foot in the playoffs last season when he was with the Houston Rockets and he underwent surgery in May. He was in a walking boot when the Bucks opened training camp and said he had suffered a setback in his recovery. 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. Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

"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."
