Delonte West sprained his ankle doing skeleton drills yesterday, and will miss tonight’s game. Perfect timing, since it’s not like he played his best game of the season last time out or anything. (Green Street)
During an informal workout Sunday, Celtics guard Delonte West sprained his right ankle when he stepped on another player’s foot and will be out for the Celtics game Monday night against Utah. Doc Ricers told reporters in Utah that West is also questionable for Wednesday’s game with Phoenix when the team returns to the Garden.
Earlier today I wrote, “With Delonte West in tow, the Celtics may not have much need for another point guard.” I neglected to mention, “If West ever injures himself, the C’s backup point guard situation could leave Avery Bradley playing solid minutes.” Not that Bradley playing minutes sucks, because I’m always an advocate of developing young talent. But he’s not ready to play any type of significant role. Mike Bibby has been bought out, for anyone interested, and perhaps Danny Ainge should place a phone call to Mr. Bibby’s agent.
Or the Celtics could play Rajon Rondo 48 minutes, because that’d certainly be terrific for his legs.
