West undergoes wrist surgery
West fractured the wrist in last Wednesday's triumph over the New Jersey Nets, crashing hard to the floor after completing a driving layup shortly before halftime. West fractured the same wrist in January of 2009 and missed 16 games -- and nearly two months of activity -- as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The surgery was performed by Dr. Drew Terrono and Dr. Hervey Kimball, and assisted by Celtics team physician Dr. Brian McKeon at New England Baptist Hospital.
West, who sat out the first 10 games of the season due to suspension, appeared in five games, averaging 6.8 points, 2 assists, and 1.8 rebounds per contest.
