INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Injured Cavaliers guard Delonte West played in a scrimmage, moving him a step closer to returning to Cleveland's lineup.

West has missed seven games with a broken left ring finger, which was recently fitted with a protective brace. On Friday, he handled the ball without any trouble and shot normally during the workout with Cleveland's reserves and assistant coaches.

The Cavs have listed him as day-to-day as they prepare for Saturday's game against New York.

Also, Cavs starting point guard Mo Williams shot around after practice. He has missed eight games over two weeks with a sprained shoulder. The Cavs expect him to be out at least one month.

Cleveland has won 10 straight.
