Delonte West wrist surgery set for Tuesday

WALTHAM — Celtics [1] coach Doc Rivers [2] announced that guard Delonte West [3] will have surgery on Tuesday for the fractured right wrist he suffered last Wednesday night late in the second quarter against New Jersey after driving in for a lay-up. Rivers said the team will know more about West and his fate for the rest of the season following the procedure.

“Surgery [Tuesday] and then we’ll know more after that,” Rivers said after practice on Monday.

Rivers aded starting point guard Rajon Rondo [4]‘€™s left hamstring is no longer an issue but his sore left foot still remains troublesome. ‘€œThe foot is the bigger issue. The hamstring [injury] is gone for the most part.’€ Rivers said.

Rondo returned on Friday against Toronto after a three-game absence with a strained left hamstring.
