CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers starting guard Delonte West will miss up to six weeks with a broken right wrist sustained in a nasty fall on Thursday night in Chicago.

West got hurt when he fell face first to the floor while trying to block rookie Derrick Rose's layup in the first quarter of the Cavaliers' 102-93 overtime loss. West also cut his face and needed stitches, but showing his toughness, he came out for layups at halftime and spent the second half on Cleveland's bench cheering his teammates.

The Cavs provided the update on West during the first half of Friday's game against New Orleans. The 25-year-old West has been one of Cleveland's steadiest players this season. He's averaging 12.3 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.1
assists and 33 minutes.
