In the aftermath of the Celtics [1]‘ 91-80 win over the Eastern Conference rival Magic on Sunday afternoon, Delonte West [2] said he plans to return from his wrist injury on Feb. 22 against the Warriors in Oakland.

“Righ now, they think I’ll be back the first game after the All-Star break,” said West, adding that he will be returning to full-contact practice soon.

West hasn’t played since breaking his right wrist against the Nets [3] on Nov. 24. The Celtics’ reserve guard played just five games after serving a 10-game suspension to open the season for a weapons charge . He averaged 6.8 points and 2.0 assists in 17.6 minutes in those games.

After recently getting his cast removed, West has participated in non-contact drills at practice in addition to shooting prior to games.

As for Sunday’s game action, West expressed concern for Marquis Daniels [4], who suffered a bruised spine and is expected to miss a month. West also said of Rajon Rondo [5], who scored a season-high 26 points: “In my opinion, Rondo is the best point guard in the NBA, but I guess you’ll have to leave that to the experts.”
