Sacramento Kings Lose Guard To Broken Finger

He may not have played a large role on the court this season for the Sacramento Kings, but he does have championship experience in the NBA, and that can be invaluable for a young team making its first playoff experience in... 16 years! 

Unfortunately, Matthew Dellavedova will now be out for an indefinite period after fracturing his finger. 

The Kings announced that Delly sustained a fractured right index finger during the 4th quarter of Wednesday's game against the Portland Trail Blazers. Treatment options are currently being considered and for now, there’s no timetable for his return. 

The 32-year-old is only averaging 6.7 minutes in 32 games played this season, with 1.5 points and 1.3 assists. But you know the gusto that Dellavedova can bring, even sitting on the bench and in the locker room. He was a key cog off the bench for the Cleveland Cavaliers in their 2016 championship season. 

He was away from the NBA last season, playing in Australia. Overall, in nine NBA seasons, he's averaged 5.2 points, 3.5 assists, and 36.3% shooting from long distance in about 19 minutes per game.
