HOUSTON (CBS Houston) A CT scan performed Thursday on Rockets forward Carlos Delfino revealed a bone fracture in his right foot. The fracture will require that Delfino have surgery this off season.

In addition to the surgery, medical professionals treating Delfino have further determined that he will miss the remainder of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

“Carlos has played a large role in our success so far this season and we are disappointed for him that he will not be able to finish out this playoff run,” said Rockets General Manager Daryl Morey. “Carlos would love nothing more than to be out there with his teammates as they prepare for tonight’s Game 6, but this is the type of injury that requires a surgical repair. We expect he will be fully recovered in time for the start of next season.”

Delfino who was forced to leave midway through the second quarter of Game 5 at Oklahoma City, suffered  soreness in his right foot during that game.

“The eight-year veteran from Argentina played in 67 contests (five starts) during the regular season and registered averages of 10.6 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game. He posted averages of 9.0 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists in five playoff appearances this postseason,” stated officials.

Delfino who was born in Argentina, has garnered attention for his defense and three point shooting skills.
