He might not play in the preseason. He hasn't logged one minute. Can anyone expect him not to play in the preseason and then play 25 minutes against Boston in the season opener?
If he isn't ready, does that mean Andre Barrett will beat out Coby Karl for the final roster spot? Right now, Karl has the edge, but that's assuming West is ready.
It has been anything but a smooth preseason for the Cavs. There have been injuries, a flu bug that tore through the team and the West situation is hanging over everyone's head.
