Indiana's David West sprained his knee in the third quarter of last night's game with the Heat and didn't return. Reports say he could have come back, but with the game out of hand there was no reason to risk further injury.
After the game, West told the media that a player dove at his knee. West then said that it would be 'dealt with.' Ominous!
West kept it pretty vague, so it's unlikely that he'll be reprimanded for making some kind of a threat. He also said he doesn't need the referees to protect him and that he can take care of himself. After all the physical play, and one really cheap shot by Miami's Dexter Pittman, game six between the Heat and Pacers tomorrow night is starting to sound like it can't be missed.
