Delonte West is a quick healer

While the Celtics have given no specific timetable for West's return from a broken right (non-shooting) wrist injury, the Celtics guard tells CSNNE.com that his return to action will be ahead of schedule.

"Even though we're (six) days out of surgery, I'm going to be back a lot quicker than we thought," West told CSNNE.com.

When he initially suffered the injury on Nov. 24 against the New Jersey Nets, Celtics coach Doc Rivers feared West would be out for the rest of the regular season.

Following surgery on Nov. 30, the outlook for his return has picked up considerably.

West said the wrist is healing up so well, there won't be any need for it to be placed in a hard cast.

"Just stimulate it with treatments, and I'll be back to working out within the next two weeks," said West, who added that he'll have it in a soft cast when he resumes working out.

While it certainly remains a longshot, it's not totally out of the question that the 6-foot-3 guard could return the court before the end of this month.

Fantastic news!

No way the Celtics rush him back this month. I'd love to get Delonte back by the West coast swing in late January.
