ESPN Dallas’ Tim MacMahon reports that West had an outburst in the locker room following the Mavs’ 123-104 preseason win over the Houston Rockets on Monday night. There are few details available concerning the length and cause of the suspension.
West had two points, two assists, and one rebound in 16 minutes of action during the game.
West has a reputation as a head case, but aside from going on a massive Twitter rant in January, he has been on relatively good behavior since joining the Mavericks last year. He also appeared to be in good spirits hours before the game, tweeting frequently and even asking his followers for fashion advice for the game.
