After the scheduled evaluations following the abdominal wall injury that he reported during Game 2 of the EuroLeague playoffs, Malcolm Delaney will be required to go under another period of treatments, Olimpia Milano announced today. Therefore, he will not be available for the playoffs of the Italian Legabasket.
As he said: “I just want to thank all the staff and teammates for doing everything possible to help me through two difficult years, mentally and physically because of the injuries. Unfortunately, the timing and situation this season took things out of our hands. These were a special two years with two of the best teams I’ve played on, with some of the worst luck, but I loved and appreciated my time here in Milan on and off the court. Thanks to the fans who supported us, even though I’m upset I can’t fight anymore with my brothers when we still have a job to finish.”
Delaney’s contract with Milan expires this summer and the possibility of him taking a sabbatical from the sport is not excluded. The 33-year-old guard had his share of injury woes during the last two seasons.
