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.

The Cavs provided the update on West during the first half of Friday’s game against New Orleans. The club said an MRI exam taken at the Cleveland Clinic confirmed West sustained a non-displaced fracture—a break in which the bone remains aligned.

The 25-year-old West has been one of Cleveland’s steadiest players this season. He’s averaging 12.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 33 minutes.

Sasha Pavlovic started in West’s spot as the Cavaliers hosted the Hornets.

Too bad for Delonte too, he was really playing pretty well. Maybe Pavlovic or Gibson will step it up.

Sucks for the Cavs, but Sasha and Wally stepped up big and clobbered New Orleans tonight. Good work.
