The 27-year-old Aussie has taken on a lesser role in his second season with Milwaukee. In 19.0 minutes per game, he is averaging 4.4 points and 3.8 assists per game, down from 7.6 and 4.7 last year, respectively.
Malcolm Brogdon's steady rise has lessened Dellavedova's importance to the Bucks this year, and Milwaukee made a big splash by acquiring Eric Bledsoe in November, which pushed Dellavedova down the depth chart.
But Brogdon is now out for up to eight weeks with a partially torn quadricep tendon. With both Delly and Brogdon on the shelf, Bledsoe will take on even more responsibilities, while Tony Snell and Sterling Brown will also pitch in as part of the backcourt rotation.
