Milwaukee Bucks forward Carlos Delfino will likely miss most of training camp after suffering a setback in his recovery from right foot surgery.

Delfino fractured his right foot while playing for Houston in Game 5 of the Rockets' first-round playoff series against Oklahoma City last April. Signed to a two-year deal with a team option for a third season this summer the 31-year-old was still in a walking boot at the team's annual media day Monday.

"I had a fracture five months ago and I had surgery" Delfino said. "I had a little setback the last couple of days. We don't have a timeframe. They are taking pictures and we're going to know more in the next couple of days. I can't wait to get on the court."

After spending three years with the Bucks Delfino signed as a free agent and played a big role with an upstart Houston team last season. He first noticed the injury in his foot with a month left in the season and played through the pain.

Delfino played effectively off the bench for the Rockets until he completely fractured the foot while dunking over Oklahoma City's Kevin Durant in Game 5.

"I don't really like to talk about this injury because I was playing injured for a month" Delfino said. "Most of the injury was probably my fault because I tried to play five or six weeks with a fractured bone in my foot . . . I tried to dunk and it just cracked."

The Bucks have veteran Caron Butler to start at small forward with Delfino second-year player Khris Middleton and rookie Giannis Antetokoumpo as backups. Delfino's absence will open the door for Middleton and Antetokoumpo to play more minutes during the exhibition season but Milwaukee needs the Argentinian to return as soon as possible.

"Hopefully he's on the mend and hopefully we can get him back as soon as possible" Bucks coach Larry Drew said. "I've always been a big Carlos Delfino fan and I was ecstatic when we signed him. I'm hoping he can recover as fast as he can so he can join the team."
