Matthew Dellavedova to sit at least two games with hamstring injury


MATTHEW Dellavedova will miss at least two games with a hamstring injury, according to Milwaukee Bucks head coach, Jason Kidd.

The Australian guard suffered the injury in the team’s win over the Detroit Pistons, and is expected to be re-evaluated after 48 hours.

Rookie guard, Malcolm Brogdon, started in Dellavedova’s place against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday (AEDT); a reward for his impressive play of late.

“I don’t think it’s a big deal,” Brogdon said of being named a starter (via theMilwaukee Journal Sentinel).

“When someone goes down, the next man has to step up. Delly can’t be replaced (with) what he brings to the team, his unselfishness.

“I think I’m in a great situation. I have great teammates that believe in me, and I also have a great coach. It’s been a transition that has allowed me to gain confidence.”

Dellavedova is averaging 7.8 points, 2.4 rebounds, and 5.6 assists per game, starting all of his 30 games for the Bucks.
