Cavs: West's absence unexcused
INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Troubled Cavaliers guard Delonte West did not show up for Cleveland's first practice and his absence was unexcused.
Cavs coach Mike Brown said West did not participate in the team's first workout of training camp on Tuesday and he did not know if West would be at the evening session.
West was recently arrested for gun possession in Maryland after police pulled him over for a traffic violation and found three concealed, loaded weapons -- two handguns and a shotgun in a guitar case on his back.
West, who has battled mood disorders for years, was in good spirits on Monday and said during the team's media day that he had resumed taking his medications.
Brown said general manager Danny Ferry was handling the situation.
