West ‘doubtful’ for tonight vs. Celtics

CLEVELAND  —  Cavaliers [1] coach Mike Brown [2] said Tuesday that troubled shooting guard Delonte West [3] is ‘doubtful’ for tonight’s season opener against the Celtics [4] 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 [5]. “I’m just waiting for them to give the okay. When Danny [Ferry] tells me he can play, he’ll play.”
