Strained right forearm to sideline Hornets' West
West injured the forearm during the Hornets' loss at Portland on Friday. He played despite the injury on Sunday, missing his first five shots and going 3-of-12 from the field as the Hornets lost 92-76 to the Los Angeles Clippers. That was the Hornets' third straight loss after a 4-0 start.
Hall said the team hopes West can return in time for the Hornets' game Saturday at Minnesota.
