NBA: X-rays on Bucks' Delfino are negative

Associated Press

MILWAUKEE X-rays on Carlos Delfino's head and neck are negative and the Bucks forward is day-to-day with neck and jaw soreness a day after being taken from the court on a stretcher.

Delfino was hurt late in the first half of Milwaukee's 87-74 loss to the Miami Heat on Friday night.

He drove to the basket, stumbled and landed face down in the lane. Udonis Haslem, Miami's 235-pound forward, went up for the rebound and inadvertently landed on the back of Delfino's head and neck.

Delfino was motionless for nearly 10 minutes while paramedics flipped him over and strapped him to a back board. He made no obvious gestures, but appeared to be conscious.

The Bucks said Friday night that Delfino was moving all extremities and was taken to a hospital for precautionary X-rays.
