West ‘doubtful’ for tonight vs. Celtics

CLEVELAND – Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said Tuesday that troubled shooting guard Delonte West is ‘doubtful’ for tonight’s season opener against the Celtics after he got into an alleged domestic dispute with his newlywed wife over the weekend in Cleveland.
A Cleveland TV station first reported that the former Celtic and his wife got into an argument at their apartment prior to a domestic violence report being filed at Cleveland’s Hopkins Airport.
This latest troubling news comes just a month after he was arrested for carrying three loaded guns on his motorcycle.
“Right now, we have a support system for him off the floor,” said Brown, who is conferring with general manager Danny Ferry. “I’m just waiting for them to give the okay. When Danny [Ferry] tells me he can play, he’ll play.”
