West sidelined

One has to wonder what's going to happen to Cavs guard Delonte West on this rugged 4-games-in-5-nights road trip.

He was held out of Tuesday's game against Memphis with soreness in his right wrist. He returned from a 16-game absence on Sunday against Detroit, but wasn't able to go two nights later.

West is a needed component in the Cavs' machine - offensively and defensively. He'll be needed at close to 100 percent in order for the Cavs to be successful on this road trip.

This is the toughest trip of the season - all four teams are solid playoff teams. The Cavs are also close to setting a franchise record for road wins. They need 4 more road wins to tie their franchise record of 22.

West will be needed. Let's see how he holds up.
