West Out, Wally Limited

Bulpett reports:

Delonte West sat out practice. The guard’s back is hurting, and the fact he didn’t take more time to heal after a couple of falls on the road may be catching up with him. 
“I’ve said this a bunch with him and been wrong, but I would be surprised if he goes (tonight),” coach Doc Rivers said. “I’ve been wrong with that because he’s such a tough guy. I just keep saying at some point his body’s going to hit a no-return point and he’s not going to be able to do it. So I wouldn’t be surprised if we didn’t see him for a couple of games.”

Wally Szczerbiak missed the last portion of the workout. He said he’ll play against the Pacers, but compensating for his two sprained ankles has caused him some swelling in the left knee. Rivers expects a playing time restriction. 

“I just think that’s something we’re going to have to do,” Szczerbiak said. “In order to stay strong and play the rest of this month and (for) the rest of the season we’re going to have to be smart.” . . .

So West is out, Wally is limited, and we'll still probably see only 16 minutes for Gerald.  Yes, I'm bitter.
