West not expected to play vs. Nets
Cavs coach Mike Brown said a final decision won't be made until just before Tuesday night's home game against the New Jersey Nets, but that it was unlikely West would play because his finger hasn't yet sufficiently healed.
The Cavaliers had been optimistic West would be able to return against the Nets. He has been wearing a splint on the finger since returning to practice last week.
Daniel Gibson will continue to start in his place.
