WASHINGTON -- Another day, another Celtics injury to a key performer.
Delonte West hurt his right ankle in the third quarter, the same ankle that sidelined him for a couple of weeks earlier this month.
"I was worried," said coach Doc Rivers, who added that there's no timetable for when West will return.
West had to be helped off the court by Ray Allen and team trainer Ed Lacerte.
At first he sat on the bench, but moments later West headed back to the locker room with Lacerte.

It’s not the craziest thing someone has said on Twitter, but Evan Turner tweeted Monday that the Celtics should retire his number.
It was a joke, of course, as the former Celtic was reacting to news that Isaiah Thomas had said he liked the No. 11 and would change his jersey number if so many people in Boston hadn’t already purchased his No. 4 jersey.
After Turner joked that No. 11 was going to be retired, Thomas joked back that he would wear No. 11 as a tribute to the current Trail Blazer.
Prior to being traded to Boston, Thomas wore No. 22 for Sacramento and No. 3 for Phoenix.
