Ty Lawson's season ended on Sunday with just one point, one rebound and one assist in five minutes off the Pacers' bench.
Lawson's decline has been precipitous and he finishes with averages of 5.7 points, 3.6 assists, 1.8 rebounds and 0.8 steals in 66 regular-season games with the Rockets and Pacers. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer, but given his struggles on and off the court, he's a long-shot to reclaim a starting job in 2016-17. May 1 - 11:02 PM

Ty Lawson handed out nine assists on Sunday to go along with seven points, six rebounds and one steal in 26 minutes of action.

Frank Vogel recently praised his bench, saying, "This year's bench is going to carry us through stretches. Not just in these closing games but, hopefully, if we clinch a playoff spot, into the playoffs." The bench rewarded his faith tonight, combining for 68 points, a performance that limited all of Indy's starters to 22 minutes or under.

Ty Lawson (illness) is probable for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

He is dealing with an upper respiratory infection, but he's fully expected to play despite missing Wednesday's game. With Lawson back in the rotation as the backup PG, Rodney Stuckey will lose a few minutes off the bench and Joe Young likely won't play.
Apr 8 - 10:24 AM

Ty Lawson (illness) has been ruled out for Wednesday against the Cavs.

He has an upper respiratory illness and was on the injury report this morning. With Lawson out, Rodney Stuckey and Joe Young could pick up a couple extra minutes. Lawson should be able to return on Friday, but isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues anyway.
Apr 6 - 4:02 PM

Ty Lawson (upper respiratory infection) did not go through shootaround and is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Cavs.

If Lawson can't give it a go tonight, it'll be Rodney Stuckey and Joe Young splitting his minutes, with Stuckey offering the most upside. Lawson has been playing around 20 minutes off the bench in Indiana, so he's not an option in most leagues.

X-rays were negative on Ty Lawson's foot on Thursday.

He's had some problems with his foot and this was just precautionary. Lawson played 20 minutes in his loss with two points, four rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block. He has very little fantasy value.
Mar 31 - 9:39 PM

Frank Vogel said that he's considered increasing Ty Lawson's role, but he's hesitant to do so as it would result in someone falling out of the rotation.

Rodney Stuckey and C.J. Miles figure to take the largest hit if Lawson's role is increased, and it'll be interesting to see if Vogel alters his approach at all for Thursday's game. In Lawson's previous five, he has averaged 15.1 minutes a night to go with 5.8 points, 2.8 assists and 1.2 steals. Until his role is increased, Lawson won't be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 31 - 6:34 PM

Frank Vogel implied that Ty Lawson's minutes will be in the 15 minute range for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

15 minutes isn't enough time for Lawson to produce a meaningful stat line in most settings. Leave him on the wire.

Ty Lawson has been sentenced to one year of probation in relation to a 2015 drunk driving arrest.

Lawson had plead guilty to one count of driving while impaired and will avoid jail time with this ruling. Lawson has already served a suspension for this arrest and won't face any discipline from the league. He's on the fantasy radar after a solid 15 minute stretch on Monday, but fantasy owners will want to see him string together a few good games before scooping him in standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 22 - 11:46 AM

Ty Lawson (foot) scored six points with two rebounds, two assists and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes against the 76ers on Monday.

He was right at his minutes limit and actually looked pretty good in this game. Lawson will need to string together a few games before he becomes a pickup in most leagues.
Mar 21 - 10:50 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) is expected to play 10-15 minutes on Monday.

That should mean he's going to back up George Hill at point guard with Hill getting around 33 minutes. Lawson won't have much value even once he's healthy.
Mar 21 - 5:25 PM

Frank Vogel said that he's hopeful to have Ty Lawson (foot) available for Monday's game vs. the 76ers.

Vogel said that he won't impose an official minutes limit upon in his first game back following a five-game absence, which makes sense considering that he wouldn't play much anyway as George Hill's backup. Lawson isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 20 - 2:38 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) is unlikely to play on Saturday against the Thunder.

He is available, but coach Frank Vogel said he would probably let him sit out another game. Lawson can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 5:26 PM

Ty Lawson (ankle) will be available for Saturday's game vs. the Thunder.

Lawson still probably won't play, as coach Frank Vogel said that the Pacers will continue to be "overly cautious" with him. "We think [Lawson] can help us down the stretch and the last thing we want is to rush him back and have him be out another week." Until Lawson cracks the rotation in Indy, he belongs on the wire in most leagues.
Mar 19 - 11:53 AM

Ty Lawson (ankle) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Thunder.

He might not even be in the rotation for this huge game. Lawson can remain on the wire in almost all leagues.
