Across the NBA

CAVALIERS: Guard Delonte West was indicted Tuesday on additional weapons and traffic charges stemming from his Sept. 17 arrest for speeding on a motorcycle and carrying multiple weapons.


The indictment sheds no new light on why West was riding a motorcycle on the Capital Beltway with two loaded handguns and a loaded shotgun. Prosecutors added an 8 1-inch Bowie knife to the list of concealed weapons West was carrying.

It's illegal in Maryland to carry concealed weapons and to transport loaded handguns.

PISTONS: Forward Tayshaun Prince missed Tuesday's game against Orlando Magic with a back injury, ending his consecutive-games streak at 496.

BUCKS: Guard Michael Redd expects to miss about two weeks because of a strained tendon in his left knee.

Nets: An MRI performed on forward Yi Jianlian confirmed that he has sprained a ligament in his right knee.
