Date:

Ty Lawson (ankle) twisted his left ankle and will miss the remainder of Sunday's game against the Thunder.

Lawson played 20 minutes and scored four points with four assists, one rebound and one steal before leaving the game. If he misses any time, Darren Collison and Garrett Temple will get a boost.
Jan 15 - 11:22 PM

Ty Lawson scored 17 points with four rebounds, four assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes against the Cavs on Friday.

The Kings are really starting to ditch the two-PG lineups, which is going to hurt Lawson and Darren Collison, who scored 13 points with one rebound, four assists and two 3-pointers. Lawson is trending back down and is only a borderline asset in standard leagues.
Jan 14 - 1:53 AM

Ty Lawson finished Sunday's home loss with 15 points, three assists and two rebounds in 22 minutes.

Lawson came off the bench tonight and he continues to bounce around the rotation depending upon matchups and the whims of coach Dave Joerger. The good news is that he made 4-of-8 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs tonight, so it wasn't that bad of a return for his owners.
Jan 9 - 12:55 AM

Ty Lawson will move to the bench in Sunday’s game against the Warriors.

With Garrett Temple starting at shooting guard, Darren Collison will start at point guard. Anthony Tolliver also got the start, moving Matt Barnes to the bench as well. Lawson's minutes should not be affected much by this move.

Ty Lawson started on Friday with 17 points, four rebounds, six assists, one steal and two turnovers in 37 minutes against the Clippers.

Coach Dave Joerger finally pulled the trigger to put Lawson in the first unit and did so with Darren Collison, who had 20 points with five rebounds in the loss. Lawson should be looking at minutes in the low 30s going forward, especially with how well he plays next to DeMarcus Cousins. If you need a point guard, he could be your guy.
Jan 7 - 1:14 AM

Ty Lawson (face, eye) finished Wednesday's 107-102 loss to the Heat with 15 points on 7-of-11 shooting, six assists, one steal and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

Lawson's vision was the main concern during pregame warmups, and the fact that he played almost 30 minutes suggests that he'll be fine going forward. As long as Darren Collison is healthy, however, there's no reason to think Lawson will out-perform another cheap PG option like Michael Carter-Williams.
Jan 5 - 2:17 AM

Ty Lawson (face) is probable to play against the Heat on Wednesday.

In other words, he's in and this will probably be the last update we get because Lawson will likely be coming off the bench. He may have to play with a mask and his vision may not be 100 percent.
Jan 4 - 9:44 PM

Ty Lawson (face, eye) is warming up to test his vision for Wednesday's game against the Heat.

It sounds like the damage to his face is not as big of an obstacle to play compared to his vision. Lawson was expected to play on Tuesday and did not. We may not get an official word on Lawson until right before tip because he's not starting. If he's out, Darren Collison and Garrett Temple would benefit.
Jan 4 - 8:56 PM

Ty Lawson (face, eye) is questionable to play against the Heat on Wednesday.

This injury report added Lawson has blurred vision in his right eye and he's dealing with hyphema, which is blood around his eye. Lawson missed Tuesday despite being probable, so he's likely looking at another game-time call. If he's out, Darren Collison will be getting heavy minutes along with Garrett Temple helping out at the point.
Jan 4 - 3:59 PM

Ty Lawson (maxillary sinus fracture) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

Wow. Lawson was originally probable to play and he was hoping to get some revenge against his former team, but it will be all Darren Collison now that Lawson is out. Collison logged 39 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday and scored 16 points. Lawson warmed up to play, but his vision was simply too blurry. He remains day-to-day.
Jan 3 - 7:53 PM

Ty Lawson (maxillary sinus fracture) and Arron Afflalo (elbow) are probable to play Tuesday vs. the Nuggets.

It looks like both Lawson and Afflalo will be good to go for tonight's revenge game in Denver. Although he's coming off the bench, Lawson has been earning a majority of the point guard minutes for the Kings, although he's struggled to stay consistent, making him little more than a low-end guy to own in deep leagues. Afflalo isn't worth owning anywhere.
Jan 3 - 3:33 PM

Ty Lawson (maxillary sinus fracture) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game in Denver.

Lawson left Saturday' game vs. the Grizzlies in the second quarter after taking a Tony Allen shoulder to the face and did not return. Lawson has been taking a heavy amount of minutes away from starter Darren Collison recently. In the six games prior to Saturday, Lawson was averaging 13.3 points and 3.5 assists in 26.9 minutes per game. We will await a more substantive update prior to Tuesday night.

Jan 3 - 9:35 AM

Ty Lawson (face) was diagnosed with a stable, non-displaced maxillary sinus fracture on Saturday and is considered day-to-day.

In layman's terms, maxillary sinuses are usually coupled with cheekbone fractures, so Lawson may have to sport a mask upon his return. For now, it looks like the Kings dodged a bullet for one of their best guards these days. He could get a revenge game in Denver on Tuesday, so he likely really wants to play in that one. In the meantime, adding Darren Collison makes sense.

Ty Lawson (face) will not return to Saturday's game against the Grizzlies.

X-Rays were inconclusive and he will undergo a precautionary CAT scan to rule out facial fracture. Tony Allen had a really aggressive cut to the basket and it looked like Allen’s left shoulder caught Lawson in the mouth, nose or to the right side of his face. Lawson was on the bench for a few minutes with the training staff looking at him before he went back to the locker room. If he does need to miss time, Darren Collison would play more while Garrett Temple would become more of a combo guard, which opens up some other minutes for the wings.
