So now we can get back to worrying about Dirk Nowitzki’s knee.

After Delonte West met with head coach Rick Carlisle and GM Donnie Nelson on Tuesday night, the team lifted his suspension, Nelson told the media according to multiple reprots. Consider it a one-game suspension.

West was suspended following a locker room outburst after the Mavericks Monday night preseason win over the Rockets. The official reason for the suspension was “conduct detrimental to the team.” The exact reason for the outburst is unknown. West has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and takes medication for it, and these kinds of incidents have happened before.

West has been a solid role player for Dallas, averaging 9.6 points and 3.2 assists per game last year, and with the roster shakeups in Dallas they are going to need that kind of production from him again.

      Maybe he gave a wet-willie to Dirk’s mom. Thought she was tired of German sausages.

    The team needs to send him to the mental hospital for awhile. What a psycho. He fits in well with cuban and nowitsky.
