Mavs announce they have suspended Delonte West indefinitely. “No other statements will be issued,” president Donnie Nelson said.

West took to his Twitter account to indirectly respond to the suspension:
West has had a tough time staying out of conflict since entering the NBA in 2004. He was arrested in 2009 for touting a guitar case full on guns on a motorcycle, resulting in a 10-game suspension by the NBA. West reportedly suffers from bipolar disorder.
The Mavs have offered no timetable for West’s return. The Mavs open their season Tuesday Oct. 30 on the road against the Lakers.
