After another intense three-on-three game in practice today, Delonte West and Von Wafer got into a fist fight in the locker room.

Punches were thrown and the players had to be separated. The Celtics are considering releasing West, who is on a non-guaranteed contract.

Sources say that Wafer tried to walk away but West followed him into the locker room and threw the first punch. Doc and vets aren't happy.

Obviously very unfortunate if true.

Update: See Alex Kennedy's full report here.  Apparently Wafer isn't the only one West has had confrontations with this year.
