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.
