Default West Returns After Missing Camp

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Delonte West worked out with his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates on Thursday after missing the first two days of training camp.

"He had a great practice," said Cavaliers coach Mike Brown, who said the absences were unexcused. "It was great to have him on the floor."

West declined to meet with reporters, as did general manager Danny Ferry. A team spokesman said Ferry will address West's situation Saturday at the team scrimmage at the University of Akron.

West could still face a league suspension after he was recently arrested for gun possession in Maryland. Police pulled over his three-wheel motorcycle for a traffic violation and found he was carrying three loaded weapons -- two handguns and a shotgun in a guitar case.

"He's a vital part to this team," center Shaquille O'Neal said. "I watched him play last year and he's a fabulous player. We're all in this together, so we support him and stick by him."

West averaged 11.7 points during the regular season last year but was arguably the second-most important player in the playoffs after LeBron James. West played 42 minutes per game during the postseason, averaging 13.8 points, 4.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds in 14 games.

Nice to see Shaq standing up for the guy. It feels like Shaq really wants to get that 5th ring this year. With his conditioning and what he talks about, it seems like he's giving it one more major push for it.
