Delonte West will not make the trip to Detroit for Saturday’s game against the Pistons, according to Celtics coach Doc Rivers. West will not not travel with the team to Atlanta for Monday’s game against the Hawks, either.
“He’s not ready,” said Rivers. “It’s disappointing for him obviously, but it’s expected. My guess is he probably did something and realized that he couldn’t. Nothing’s gotten worse, he just hasn’t improved.”
Rivers seemed positive going into tonight’s game against Toronto.
“We’re ready to play,” he said. “We’ve got our nine soldiers tonight and we’ll be ready.”
