Celtics' West breaks wrist against Nets
Boston guard Delonte West left the Celtics' game against the New Jersey Nets after breaking his right wrist.
West crashed to the ground after a layup with 2:48 left in the second quarter. He stayed there, grimacing in pain, until the medical staff came to help him. A few minutes later, he walked off, holding his right arm in his left, still in obvious pain.
No foul was called on Travis Outlaw, who was guarding him.
West had four points in 12 minutes on Wednesday night. He was averaging 7.5 points in about 19 minutes per game since returning from a 10-game suspension for his guilty plea on gun charges.
The Celtics were already short at guard because of a hamstring injury that has kept Rajon Rondo out the last three games.
