Carlos Delfino (foot) announced on Monday that he intends to play for Argentina in this year's FIBA World Cup, pending a medical release from the Bucks.
Delfino is still recovering from a broken foot that sidelined him for the entire 2013-14 season, but it appears he'd like to give it a go. Delfino also added that he plans to participate with the Bucks at the Las Vegas Summer League, however it's unclear whether he intends to actually play in those games, or if he'll just be participating in some side workouts with some of the Bucks veteran guys.

Carlos Delfino hopes to play for Argentina in the World Cup this summer, but his availability is uncertain due to foot surgery he had in December.

"Maybe Milwaukee will see it as beneficial for me to get up to speed and so I can arrive at the start of training camp with a little basketball," Delfino said. "Hopefully the new [Bucks] owners see it the same way." There have been no reports of Delfino advancing to on-court work during his rehab, so we're considering him somewhat doubtful to play for his native country this summer.

Carlos Delfino will return to Milwaukee to continue his rehab on his foot injury.

It was reported earlier this week he would stay in Argentina, but he'll use the team facilities with head athletic trainer Scott Barthlama. Delfino is out for the season and has not played a single minute with the Bucks this go 'round.
Mar 22 - 2:42 PM

Carlos Delfino (foot) will continue rehabbing in Argentina and will not join the Bucks this season.

He was ruled out for the season back in January and he just won't be joining the team. Delfino should be ready to go for next season should the Bucks keep him.
Mar 21 - 3:48 PM

Carlos Delfino (foot surgery) has officially been ruled out for the 2013-14 season after the NBA granted the Bucks a Disabled Player Exception.

Milwaukee gets a $1.75 million exception which can be used for salary-cap relief in trades or free agent signings to acquire a replacement player. Delfino is expected to rejoin the Bucks in late February as he continues his rehabilitation, and he should be ready for training camp.
Jan 26 - 11:05 AM

Carlos Delfino (foot surgery) is expected to return to Milwaukee prior to the All-Star break in February.

His return to the U.S. is an encouraging mile-marker during his lengthy rehab, but there's still no guarantee that he'll step on the court this season.
Jan 13 - 1:05 PM

Carlos Delfino (foot surgery) isn't sure whether he'll play during the 2013-14 season, saying, "some people say [the rehab takes] six months. Some people say three months."

"I want to be on the court and not limping. I've been to so many doctors," Delfino said. "Once I get to the court, I want to make sure I'm going to be there and not have a setback again." He was bothered by a plate and screws put into his foot during an initial surgery last May, and shock-wave therapy didn't have any effect, so he opted to have the plate removed and a new screw inserted "at a different angle." He'll be off his feet for eight weeks and it doesn't sound like he'll contribute much, if anything, for the Bucks this season.

Carlos Delfino will be limited to non-weight bearing activities for eight weeks after having right foot surgery on Saturday.

Delfino wrote on his personal website in November that he wouldn't return this season, but the Bucks haven't yet ruled him out. Even if he does return for a handful of games, there's no reason for fantasy owners to consider him until late February or March.

Carlos Delfino (foot) will undergo surgery on his right foot on Saturday.

The news comes according to Bucks coach Larry Drew. He added that the surgery will be performed in Delfino's native Argentina. After fracturing the foot, Delfino had surgery last May. It was determined another surgery was necessary for the foot to properly heal. Delfino will miss the remainder of the season.

Carlos Delfino (foot) will miss 4-6 months after setbacks in his recovery, according to his personal website.

He had surgery in May but a fracture was still present in August and it has been determined that Delfino's foot won't heal properly without another surgery. "I have to enter an operating room again to try to solve the situation," Delfino said, according to a rough translation. This effectively ends his 2013-14 season and means the Bucks will have to rely more heavily on Caron Butler, Khris Middleton, and possibly rookie Giannis Antetokounmpo.

Carlos Delfino (foot) is no longer wearing a walking boot.

He is still rehabbing his injured foot and said it hasn't quite healed all the way yet. Delfino will likely come off the bench and could be responsible for hitting a couple 3-pointers per game, but it'll be tough to stash him in fantasy leagues until he has a concrete timetable to return.
Fri, Nov 8, 2013 12:38:00 PM

Carlos Delfino (foot) has a doctor's appointment Thursday and is hopeful to start practicing soon.

Delfino has yet to practice this season due to his offseason foot surgery, so this latest update is a good sign that we may see the nine-year veteran before the calendar turns to 2014. Delfino has some fantasy value when he's healthy (and on a hot streak), but he's only worth a stash in deeper leagues until a timeframe for his a return is established.
Thu, Nov 7, 2013 01:25:00 PM

There is still no timetable on when we might see Carlos Delfino in action as he recovers from right foot surgery.

It's safe to say he won't play early in the season and we're guessing that Christmas might be a realistic timeframe to expect him to return. But that's just a guess. With all the uncertainty surrounding Delfino, we'd recommend drafting someone else instead.

Zaza Pachulia (Achilles) and Carlos Delfino (knee) won't play in the Bucks' preseason opener on Tuesday.

In addition, Khris Middleton (ankle) and Ekpe Udoh (knee) are both questionable with minor injuries, and head coach Larry Drew may play it safe with both of them.
Mon, Oct 7, 2013 03:34:00 PM

Carlos Delfino is recovering from right foot surgery and is expected to miss the entire preseason, and may not be ready for the start of the regular season.

If that's the case, news that the Bucks are trying to acquire Caron Butler makes sense, as the Bucks probably aren't thrilled with the prospects of starting Khris Middleton at small forward on opening night. Delfino will see plenty of run once he's healthy, but it appears that he has some time to go before that's the case.
