The Dallas Mavericks have suspended Delonte West for the second time this preseason for conduct detrimental to the team. The only difference is this time he's gone indefinitely. Last week, he was suspended for a locker room outburst that occurred after a preseason win over the Houston Rockets, but the suspension only lasted a day and West was promptly reinstated. The Mavericks wouldn't go into detail as to why they decided this line of action, but Delonte took to Twitter to vent a little bit:

We hope Delonte gets back on the court by Oct. 30 for the Mav's regular-season opener vs. the Los Angeles Lakers. He's a favorite around these parts for the way he plays the game and for his Twitter feed. We'll be sure to enjoy some fast food in his honor on this sad day.
