Delonte West is latest to fall ill
By Jeff Caplan
Whatever bug is terrorizing the Dallas Mavericks locker room better clear out soon or who knows who'll be left standing for Sunday's opener.
A day after Jason Terry fell ill and was taken to the hospital to be checked out, backup point guard Delonte West missed this morning's shootaround with an illness. He'll be a game-time decision for tonight's second and final preseason game at the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Terry did not even make the trip. If West can't play that will likely mean increased time for Rodrigue Beaubois and Dominique Jones, which wouldn't be an awful thing.
Last week, Brian Cardinal and Brandan Wright were the victims with Wright feeling so badly that he couldn't play in Sunday's preseason game.
