Ty Lawson (ankle) still can't run, but is able to go to the gym, lift weights, and get treatment in the meantime.
A week after saying that he still can't run, Lawson did provide an update on his sprained left ankle, "I’m still trying to get over this ankle injury. Every day I’ve been going to the gym, lifting weights and getting treatment done. I’ve been doing that for the last month, month and a half." The 26-year-old missed 20 games during the 2013-14 season, but was still able to average solid numbers of 17.6 points, 1.2 3-pointers, 3.5 rebounds, 8.8 assists, and 1.6 steals so he should set himself up to be one of the better fantasy point guards in 2014-15 if he can stay on the court.

Ty Lawson (ankle) said recently that he "still can't run" and will be out another 3-4 weeks, but he will not require surgery.

Lawson missed the Nuggets' final 10 games due to a sprained left ankle which originally wasn't considered serious. "I didn't think it was that bad, either, until seven weeks after it happened and I still couldn't run," Lawson said. "So I was like, 'I need to get this checked out.'" The good news is that X-rays and MRIs have ruled out any structural damage and Lawson should be ready to go by mid-July.

Ty Lawson left for Valencia, Spain on Wednesday for the NBA 3X.

The NBA 3X is a competitive 3-on-3 tournament and Kenneth Faried will also travel to Leon, Spain for the season reason. Lawson's ankle injury seems to be behind him after missing the final six games of the season. He missed 20 total games last season, which was the most in his five-year career. He'll be a top-10 point guard to draft next season.

Ty Lawson will not play against the Warriors on Wednesday due to a sprained ankle.

He missed the last six games of the season after an injury on Apr. 4. Lawson is one of the fastest players in the NBA, but he does have his share of injuries. If not for his durability concerns, he'd be a top-15 pick in fantasy leagues. Aaron Brooks gets another start tonight.
Apr 16 - 9:21 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Clippers on Tuesday night.

He didn't even travel and that makes him almost a lock to be out for the season. Aaron Brooks has seen tremendous opportunity in the starting lineup and has been filling up the stat sheet, but he hasn't shot the ball well. In all likelihood, Lawson's season will finish with averages of 17.6 points, 3.5 boards, 8.8 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.2 triples. He'll still be a high pick in fantasy drafts next year despite some injury woes in the second half.
Apr 14 - 4:39 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play vs. the Warriors on Thursday.

He is basically out for the season and the Nuggets have not updated him at all through the course of the day. Aaron Brooks is as must-start as it gets.
Apr 10 - 10:24 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play vs. the Rockets on Wednesday.

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw is "fairly confident" that Lawson will return this season, but with four games remaining after Wednesday it will soon be a moot point. Aaron Brooks blew up vs. the Rockets on Sunday and he's a must-start player with Lawson out.
Apr 9 - 1:59 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) is expected to miss his second consecutive game on Wednesday.

"He's doing better but still not well enough ... I don't think he's close to getting back on the court," said coach Brian Shaw, who previously stated that it's "really not a big deal" if Lawson rests for the remaining five games of the Nuggets' season. This leaves Aaron Brooks with a clear path to value down the stretch, and the red-hot PG belongs in active fantasy lineups until further notice.
Apr 8 - 4:25 PM

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said recently that it's "really not a big deal" if Ty Lawson (sprained left ankle) doesn't play again this season.

Lawson is officially day-to-day but Shaw's quotes are rather bleak. "If he can come back and he feels strong enough to come back and it's not going to do any further damage, then I want him to come back," he said. "But if he can't, it's really not a big deal. I think the most important thing is his health going forward." It's a reasonable stance with five games left on the schedule, and owners should consider Lawson doubtful until a more positive update surfaces. Aaron Brooks will look to continue his terrific run as a starter vs. Houston on Wednesday.

Ty Lawson will not play against the Rockets on Sunday night due to a sprained ankle.

He was walking gingerly while not wearing a walking boot at the arena on Sunday. Coach Brian Shaw said Lawson will not be rushed back, which certainly spells trouble for his outlook the rest of the way. Considering Lawson's injury history, we'd probably bet on him missing multiple games, so fantasy owners in weekly leagues have to bench him this week. Aaron Brooks becomes a must-own player while Randy Foye and Evan Fournier should see more run.
Apr 6 - 6:11 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) will not play against the Rockets on Sunday, according to Rockets' play-by-play announcer Craig Ackerman.

Since this report comes from the Rocket side of things, it should not quite be treated as gospel just yet. We'll throw another update as the game gets closer to tip time, but Lawson was in a walking boot on Friday and he could miss multiple games. Aaron Brooks will be a must-start player against his former team while Randy Foye and Evan Fournier also get boosts.
Apr 6 - 3:05 PM

Ty Lawson (left ankle sprain) was wearing a walking boot following Friday's game.

"It’s a normal sprain, but this is probably the worst one I’ve had," Lawson said. It sounds like he's going to miss Sunday's game vs. the Rockets, which would move Aaron Brooks into the starting lineup and give Evan Fournier more minutes. As for Lawson's fantasy owners, the best course of action is to probably wait for another update before Sunday's shootaround.
Apr 4 - 10:58 PM

Ty Lawson suffered a left ankle sprain and did not return on Friday, finishing with 16 points, one board, three assists, two steals and one turnover in 32 minutes.

X-rays were negative and no timetable has been given just yet. He came off the bench tonight because he was late to a morning meeting, but that wasn't going to affect his playing time. Lawson went to the locker room with his ankle sprain and the team should update his status on Saturday. Aaron Brooks looks like a must-add player right now.
Apr 4 - 10:03 PM

Updating a previous item, Ty Lawson will come off the bench for missing the start of a team meeting and Aaron Brooks will start.

Beat writer Chris Dempsey says Lawson will "for sure" play tonight, so this punishment shouldn't really affect Lawson's bottom line in a tough matchup. His fantasy owners should keep him in their lineup and those who were going to start Brooks can just see this news as an added bonus.
Apr 4 - 6:25 PM

Ty Lawson will not start Friday's game vs. Memphis for missing a morning team meeting.

There is no word as to how much time Lawson will miss or if he's even going to play. Unless he did something really bad on top of missing the meeting, the Nuggets almost have to play him because they are so shorthanded. Aaron Brooks will start and is worth using in most fantasy leagues even before this news hit.
