Just a handful of games into the season, Celtics point guard Delonte West will be sidelined with a broken right wrist for an undisclosed amount of time. Up until this unfortunate event, West had been contributing solid minutes to the team, and was back on the right track after serving a 10-game suspension to start the season.
West crashed down on his right wrist with 2:48 remaining in the second quarter. He left the game in obvious pain and did not return. There is no word yet on how long west will be out. This is especially inconvenient to the team because starting point guard Rajon Rondo is already missing games because of hamstring issues.
West, who has dealt with some serious off-court issues in recent years, had really gotten his act together and was playing very well, averaging over 7 points in about 19 minutes a game. This injury has the potential to be a huge setback, but hopefully he can heal quickly and be back on the court as soon as possible.
