West expects to return to action in the Celtics’ first game after the All-Star Break.
If all goes according to his schedule, he would play February 22 against the Golden State Warriors on the road.
“That’s the update that I have after seeing the CT scan,” he told CSNNE.com. “Give it another week or so and I can get back to it. I’m happy with those results.”
With Marquis Daniels down for at least one or two months, the Celtics need West to solidify the bench. They also also need West to take pressure off Nate Robinson, who has been — I’ll put this very delicately — not very great the past couple weeks or so. Needless to say, the Celtics can succeed without West. But he adds another viable weapon off the bench, and, more importantly, a (hopefully) consistent weapon.
