Ty Lawson made 10-of-20 shots with four 3-pointers on Tuesday, finishing a tough loss in Brooklyn with 29 points, four boards, nine assists and four turnovers.
He logged 42 minutes and didn't seem at all bothered by his recent back injury. He's averaging 39+ minutes in December and has just one DNP all season, back in early November, though his fantasy value has fallen compared to last season due to decreased scoring (15.3 points) and poor shooting (40.5 percent).

Ty Lawson (back) scored 18 points with four assists, four turnovers and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes during a 110-92 loss on Monday.

He was roasted on defense, but it might have been due to his sore back. Lawson was a game-time decision and it was announced he was good to go about 90 minutes before tip, so he has a good chance to play on Tuesday.

Ty Lawson (back) will play against the Hornets on Monday.

He is dealing with back soreness and there is no word of him being limited. Lawson's bigger issue has been his ankle and he hasn't had too many back issues in his career, so his fantasy owners can throw him into their lineups. If something goes wrong, Nate Robinson would get more run.

Ty Lawson (back) is a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Hornets.

Lawson appearing as a game-time call is certainly a surprise, and Nate Robinson would draw the start at point guard if Lawson is unable to suit up. Owners will need to check back for an update prior to tipoff as it sounds like the call will be made shortly before tipoff.
Dec 22 - 12:07 PM

Ty Lawson handed out 16 assists with 12 points, one steal and four turnovers in 47 minutes against the Rockets on Wednesday.

He was Patrick Beverley'd tonight. Lawson's dimes are surging with at least nine in every game since Nov. 13. He isn't shooting the ball well, but his 1.5 steals per game have helped him hold some value. He should come around as a scorer and just needs to stay healthy.
Dec 18 - 3:23 AM

Ty Lawson scored just six points on 2-of-10 shooting in Sunday's loss to the Spurs, adding 10 assists, two boards and one steal in 39 minutes.

He suffered a left eye laceration and had to briefly leave the game, so maybe he deserves a pass for this performance. Lawson has still been playing out of his mind and as long as his ankle doesn't flare up he should continue to keep it rolling. Expect him to bounce back on Wednesday vs. the Rockets.
Dec 14 - 10:57 PM

Ty Lawson left Sunday's game against the Spurs with a left eye laceration, but will return.

He collided with Manu Ginobili and was clearly shaken up after the play. However, he is coming out to play in the second half and he should be fine moving forward.
Dec 14 - 9:02 PM

Ty Lawson scored 22 points during a 112-107 overtime loss to the Raptors on Monday, adding six rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 49 minutes.

He is dropping dimes all over the place and is just 0.4 per game behind Rajon Rondo for the league lead. We always knew Lawson was going to put up big numbers, but the concerns of his ankle make him a possible sell-high player.
Dec 8 - 11:45 PM

Ty Lawson was big for Denver in Tuesday's loss to Portland, finishing with 24 points, 13 assists, four rebounds, two steals and three 3-pointers.

He is the main reason that the Nuggets have turned things around this season and he has made them relevant in the Western Conference again. Lawson played an astounding 43 minutes Tuesday and if he can stay healthy he is going to continue posting big numbers.
Dec 3 - 12:15 AM

Ty Lawson said he and his Denver Nuggets teammates have bought into head coach Brian Shaw's system.

After a slow start to the season, the Nuggets have won seven of their last eight games and Lawson thinks the team has bought in. "It started bad at first," Lawson said. "We cleaned up a lot of things. Everybody has their role. Coach made everybody's role defined." Fantasy owners should consider Lawson a top-10 point guard as long as he stays healthy as he's now has averaged 16.2 points, 4.0 rebounds, 12.4 assists, and 1.6 steals over his past five games.
Dec 2 - 9:15 AM

Ty Lawson handed out 12 assists in Monday's 103-101 win over the Jazz, adding 15 points, four rebounds, two steals and three turnovers.

He has so many dimes these days that he's headed to a Coin Star machine after the game. Kidding aside, Lawson has filled it up in that span, averaging 16.2 points, 4.0 boards, 12.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.6 triples on 38.2 percent from the field with all five games going for double-doubles. The production isn't the issue for Lawson and he just needs to stay healthy.
Dec 2 - 12:10 AM

Ty Lawson fueled the offense against the Suns on Wednesday during a 120-112 loss, making 4-of-16 from the field for 17 points with seven rebounds, 12 assists, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He played 40 minutes tonight and has seen a major increase in minutes lately. Lawson looks healthy and he did make a respectable 45.1 percent from the field in his previous 10 games. His fantasy owners shouldn't worry about the production and just need him to stay healthy.
Nov 27 - 2:58 AM

Ty Lawson posted 20 points, one 3-pointer, 12 assists, three steals and a rare block in Tuesday's win over the visiting Bulls.

This was Lawson's second 20 & 10 game of the season, the last one coming on Nov. 17, and he's averaging a terrific 16.3 points, 0.8 threes, 2.4 rebounds, 9.7 assists and 1.2 steals per game. He started out slow and missed one game with a lingering ankle injury but has since played without any physical limitations, so fantasy owners can look confidently toward his rest-of-season output.
Nov 26 - 12:06 AM

Brian Shaw credited Ty Lawson for Denver's recent four-game winning streak.

"It all comes back to Ty setting the table for everybody," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said. "When he comes out aggressive offensively and he's attacking the paint, it makes it easier for everybody else." In wins, Lawson is averaging 12.8 points and 10.2 assists, while in losses he's averaging 19.0 points and 8.2 assists. As long as he can keep his ankle healthy, Lawson should continue to thrive.

Ty Lawson set a new season high with 16 assists in Sunday's overtime win vs. the Lakers, adding 18 points on 5-of-10 FGs and 7-of-10 FTs.

This was a foreseeable performance since the Lakers are giving up the most points (112.5) of any team in the league, as well as the third-most assists (25.4). Lawson turned the ball over five times and didn't have any steals, which is easy to overlook when his 18 & 16 double-double gets the headline. The best news might be that he logged 44 minutes and is showing no symptoms of the lingering ankle injury which cost him a game back in early November.
