Veteran guard Matthew Dellavedova underwent surgery on Saturday for acute appendicitis, the Cavaliers announced in a press release.

The condition was discovered after Dellavedova told the Cavaliers' medical staff he was feeling pain in his lower right abdomen. He is  currently recovering, and the Cavs stated that status updates will be  issued “as appropriate.”

The 30-year-old suffered a concussion during Cleveland’s first preseason game and hasn’t played yet this season. Earlier this month, he called it a “temporary setback” and said he has no plans to retire.

Dellavedova saw limited action for the Cavaliers last season, averaging 3.1 points and 3.2 assists in 57 games. He re-signed with the Cavaliers on a one-year deal during the offseason.
