Cavaliers starting guard Delonte West will miss up to six weeks with a broken right wrist sustained in a nasty fall on Thursday night in Chicago.
"It's going to be tough for us," LeBron James said. "It's going to be tough on everybody but everybody has to step up. We'll see what happens. You can't fill Delonte's shoes. Everybody just has to step up. Delonte's toughness and what he has been able to do for this team this year is unmatched. There is nobody who can step into his shoes."
Meanwhile, the Cavaliers got positive news on injured center Zydrunas Ilgauskas, who has been out since Jan. 2 with a broken left ankle. Ilgauskas has been cleared to resume on-court basketball activities and could return to game action in two more weeks.
