DALLAS -- Dallas Mavericks guard Delonte West has been suspended for conduct detrimental to the team, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said.
Carlisle did not specify a timetable for West's suspension.
Sources told ESPNDallas.com that West's suspension stems at least in part from an outburst in the locker room after the Mavs' 123-104 preseason win Monday over the Houston Rockets. He had 2 points, 2 assists and 1 rebound in 16 minutes during the win.
West tweeted later Monday: "Sorry moma..." and "I showed off on ur birthday again..."
West, an eight-year veteran entering his second season with the Mavs, has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
West's bipolar disorder was a factor in a September 2009 incident that resulted in his arrest on weapons charges after he was pulled over while driving a three-wheel motorcycle in Maryland. Delonte West suspended by Mavs - ESPN
