In Boston Celtics speak, the phrase “he’ll return Wednesday” really means “there’s a slight chance he’ll return Wednesday. In all probability, he will actually return sometime later than that.” Thus, Delonte West’s return — just like so many returns before his — has been pushed back. (ESPN Boston)
“[Delonte] is not going to play tomorrow and I think he’s doubtful for Friday [at Philadelphia] as well,” said Rivers. “We’re hoping for Sunday [vs. Milwaukee].”
Von Wafer will not play tomorrow, either, and, well, things don’t sound good.
The news on Wafer isn’t encouraging. Still wearing a walking boot since spraining the calf Friday against the Golden State Warriors, he is expected to miss at least another week.
Said Rivers: “He’s going to miss a while. He’s nowhere close to coming back.”
Glen Davis will also miss the chance to play Blake Griffin, as will the O’Neal brothers. Davis will miss the next two games, despite saying he felt “great” today.
