Mavs' West breaks ring finger vs. Denver

Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West has fractured his right ring finger.

West fractured and dislocated his finger while trying to make a defensive play about halfway through the second quarter Wednesday night against Denver. It was an ugly injury with blood clearly visible.

The Mavericks said West wouldn't return to the game and that it was unclear how many games he might miss.

West came off the bench on a night when the Mavericks were already without guards Jason Terry and Rodrigue Beaubois.
