Ty Lawson played only nine minutes vs. New York on Sunday, going scoreless with one assist, one steal and two turnovers.
Kings coach Dave Joerger revealed that he wanted to play bigger tonight to match up with the Knicks, and Lawson is liable to bounce back with mid-20s minutes vs. the Mavs on Wednesday. He's been clinging to late-round value despite Darren Collison's return, but there should be better rest-of-season options in most 12-team leagues. Dec 4 - 10:27 PM

Ty Lawson shifted to a reserve role on Sunday, finishing a road win in Brooklyn with 13 points (5-of-10 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), four boards, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes.

Arron Afflalo took his starting job tonight and the logic here is inscrutable, though it did result in a win for the Kings. All fantasy owners need to remember is that Lawson has averaged 6.8 points on 37.6 percent shooting this season, and he's little more than an assists specialist in 14-team leagues.

Ty Lawson will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Nets.

Finally. Lawson has been terrible as a starter this year with averages of just 6.8 points, 5.0 assists and 1.1 steals per game, so the demotion to the second unit could stick. Arron Afflalo will take Lawson's spot in the starting five for tonight's game, but he's not a great option in most leagues.
Nov 27 - 6:13 PM

Ty Lawson started the first half and came off the bench after halftime against the Rockets on Friday, scoring 12 points with four rebounds, three assists and one 3-pointer in 24 minutes.

Coach Dave Joerger is going to stick with his smaller lineups, but it may not be Lawson every night. He seems to be well behind Darren Collison for most of the point guard minutes. Lawson is still clinging to value in his diminished role, but the lower upside makes him drop candidate for owners with anything promising on their wires.
Nov 26 - 2:31 AM

Ty Lawson is starting against the Rockets on Friday, moving Arron Afflalo to the bench.

Afflalo started the previous game in order to match up against Russell Westbrook. Lawson is trending down and is averaging just 6.8 points and 4.2 assists over his last five games, so you should have a better option on your waiver wire.
Nov 25 - 10:30 PM

Ty Lawson played 21 minutes off the bench against the Thunder on Wednesday, scoring eight points with four rebounds, four assists and one steal.

This move was coming from a mile away and it's probably going to stick. Darren Collison has played well for the most part and the Kings have put emphasis on starting strong. Lawson is cut candidate in most leagues.
Nov 24 - 1:38 AM

Ty Lawson retained his spot in the Kings' starting rotation on Sunday, scoring five points with five assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes.

Lawson shot just 2-of-7 from the field without any free throws, but anyone who owns him must be thankful that he's starting alongside Darren Collison -- the prevailing notion was that DC's ascension would ruin Lawson's appeal. Even as a starter, however, Lawson is a shaky option in most 12-team leagues.
Nov 21 - 12:53 AM

Ty Lawson surprised everyone on Friday against the Clippers, scoring 18 points with seven rebounds, eight assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 36 minutes.

Coach Dave Joerger used Darren Collison next to Lawson to start the second half and that pair saw 21 minutes together tonight. Lawson was coming off a brutal four-game run with only 14 points and seven assists combined, but he was very good tonight. We'd still much rather have Collison and consider Lawson as more of a 14-team guy.
Nov 19 - 2:42 AM

Ty Lawson played 15 minutes against the Blazers on Friday with no points, one rebound, two steals and no turnovers.

It was somewhat surprising to see him start the third quarter. Lawson had a really good run, but Darren Collison seems to have his legs back. Lawson is a drop candidate in most leagues.
Nov 12 - 2:09 AM

Ty Lawson made another start at point guard on Thursday and hit 4-of-6 shots and two 3-pointers for 11 points, one rebound, one assist and two steals in 25 minutes.

Darren Collison came off the bench and hit just 2-of-11 shots, but it's just a matter of time before he replaces Lawson as the starter. Collison is the guy you want to be holding here.
Nov 11 - 1:21 AM

Ty Lawson is starting for the Kings on Tuesday.

Darren Collison's return to the first unit will have to wait. Lawson hasn't been playing well and Collison is going to eat into his workload, so his owners should be prepared to move on. Collison should be owned everywhere.
Nov 8 - 10:44 PM

Ty Lawson shot 0-of-6 from the field on Sunday, finishing with five points on 5-of-6 free throws, 11 assists, two rebounds and one turnover in 36 minutes.

Lawson has averaged 6.6 points, 6.0 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 31.4 minutes this season, but his numbers will take a big hit with Darren Collison set to return from his suspension on Tuesday. He was already a borderline guy with a short shelf-life, and better free agents should be plentiful in all leagues.
Nov 6 - 9:31 PM

Ty Lawson scored one point with two rebounds, six assists and two turnovers in 20 minutes against the Bucks on Saturday.

Darren Collison is back after the next game, so clearly Lawson hasn't really done much to take minutes from him. If you have Lawson on your roster, you might want to be checking out the waiver wire.
Nov 6 - 12:01 AM

Ty Lawson had 11 points, seven rebounds, five assists and a 3-pointer on 5-of-9 shooting in Thursday's 102-94 loss to the Magic.

We're down to two more guaranteed starts for Lawson, as Darren Collison is suspended for two more games this season. Once Collison's back, Lawson should probably be hitting waiver wires until Collison gets into more trouble, or suffers an injury.
Nov 3 - 9:41 PM

Ty Lawson hit just 1-of-6 shots and zero 3-pointers for two points, five rebounds, and four assists in 37 minutes of Tuesday's loss to the Heat.

He's got three more starts before Darren Collison returns from his suspension and has yet to do anything extraordinary. But he could bounce back in the next three games, so you should plan on holding him until his starting run is officially over.
