Continuing the process of rehabbing the right wrist he broke in November, Delonte West had X-rays Monday and saw a hand specialist, who cleared him to work out without the brace he had been wearing and begin strengthening the wrist.

He dribbled the basketball with his right (non-shooting) hand, although he was tentative about using the hand to catch passes.

“I’m still a little timid, but I’m getting there,” West said. “As far as dribbling and doing whatever I can with the right hand, I’m permitted to do that.”

West has missed 25 games because of the injury, but he expects to return to practice in 2-3 weeks. He has a CT scan scheduled for next Tuesday.

“Everything’s on schedule,” West said. “As far as dealing with the pain and the rotation, I’m actually ahead of schedule. I’m happy about the progress.”
