From the Boston Globe’s Gary Washburn:

#mavericks announce Delonte West has surgery to repair fractured right ring finger. No timetable for his return. Another bad break for him

West, a tough, versatile player who was a key piece of the 66-win 08-09 Cavaliers, has had his career go through some extreme ups and downs since he was arrested for driving a motorcycle while carrying firearms in the 2009 offseason, and has struggled to regain his 08-09 form thanks to injuries and his public struggle with bipolar disorder.

Before the injury, which was fairly gruesome, West was averaging 8.5 points and 3.5 assists for the Mavericks, and was a huge help to the Mavericks, who are currently #4 in the league in defensive efficiency, on that side of the floor.

    Sometimes it seems that if it were not for bad luck, Delonte would have no luck at all. He was playing wee for the Mavs until this. Hope he has a speedy recovery and a swift return to his team.
