Cleveland's Delonte West works out with team

The Cavaliers player could still face a league suspension after his recent arrest for gun possession in Maryland.

Delonte West worked out with his Cleveland Cavaliers teammates 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.

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

Finger injury limits Arenas, Wizards say

The Washington Wizards say Gilbert Arenas has missed scrimmages at training camp because of a finger injury, not because of any problems with his surgically repaired left knee.

Arenas sat out a scrimmage for the second consecutive day, though he did participate in drills.

He dislocated the middle finger on his left hand in a pickup game before training camp began, then aggravated it this week.

Celtics' Walker to have knee surgery

Boston Celtics forward Bill Walker is expected to sit out six to eight weeks after surgery on his right knee.

Walker also had surgery on the knee last year.

Celtics Coach Doc Rivers said Walker has a torn meniscus and will have an operation today.
