Cavaliers starting guard Delonte West will miss up to six weeks with a broken right wrist sustained in a nasty fall on Thursday night in Chicago.
West got hurt when he fell face first to the floor while trying
to block rookie Derrick Rose's layup in the first quarter of the
Cavaliers' 102-93 overtime loss. West also cut his face and needed
stitches, but showing his toughness, he came out for layups at
halftime and spent the second half on Cleveland's bench cheering
The Cavs provided the update on West during the first half of
Friday's game against New Orleans.
The 25-year-old West has been one of Cleveland's steadiest
players this season. He's averaging 12.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.1
assists and 33 minutes.
