Ty Lawson (rest) is out for Wednesday night against the Clippers.
His season will end on a high note with a triple-double consisting of 22 points, 12 assists and 11 rebounds. Lawson was not even a lock to make the roster back in October, but he finished the year with 17.3 points per game on an incredible 68.1 percent from the field in his final six games. Despite a rocky couple of years, Lawson is back on track. For tonight, expect Langston Galloway to get heavy run with Tyreke Evans getting spot PG minutes. Apr 12 - 5:31 PM

Date:

Ty Lawson recorded the first triple-double of his career in a 129-104 win over the Suns on Tuesday, scoring 22 points with 12 assists and 11 rebounds.

In case it's not obvious, the NBA can get a little weird in April. Lawson hit 6-of-10 shots from the field and 9-of-10 from the line in 31 minutes with one steal and one triple, and he took advantage of some extra usage with Darren Collison resting. Lawson has rested in six out of the last 15 games for the Kings, so there's a good chance that he sits out of the season finale against the Clippers on Wednesday.
Apr 12 - 1:16 AM

Ty Lawson returned from a rest day to finish Sunday's game with 20 points, 11 assists, two rebounds and one steal, making 7-of-12 field goals and 6-of-6 free throws.

It was Darren Collison's turn to rest tonight, and Lawson took full advantage of the starting gig. He did his damage in just 28 minutes but owners should view tonight's line skeptically -- he was facing the fast-paced Rockets, and is liable to be rested in one of the Kings' final games.
Apr 9 - 9:13 PM

Ty Lawson, Garrett Temple, Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein will start Sunday vs. the Rockets.

Lawson and Temple will be returning from rest days, and they'll be replacing Darren Collison (rest) and Arron Afflalo (rest) in the starting five. Lawson could be forced into heavy minutes tonight, so he's on the radar as a potential streamer.

Ty Lawson (rest) will not play against the Lakers on Friday night.

It's another day off for Lawson, who did not play on Tuesday either. Darren Collison should get some heavy minutes at the one with Langston Galloway backing him up.
Apr 7 - 4:40 PM

Ty Lawson and Darren Collison are both resting vs. the Mavericks on Tuesday.

The tank rolls on. Arron Afflalo (back), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Anthony Tolliver (hip) are also out, so the Kings are going to be very short-handed tonight. Garrett Temple, Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway will likely run the offense tonight, but most fantasy owners will want to ignore anyone not named Buddy Hield, Skal Labissiere and Willie Cauley-Stein.
Apr 4 - 8:37 PM

Ty Lawson scored 21 points with 11 assists in Saturday's win over the Wolves.

Apparently the maintenance day on Friday worked for Lawson, as he was a team-high +18 in the win. He hit 5-of-8 field goals and 11-of-14 from the line, adding two rebounds and one steal in 25 minutes. As good as he was in this one, Lawson is a candidate to rest on any given night.
Apr 1 - 10:55 PM

Ty Lawson (rest) will not play Friday night vs. the Pelicans.

The Kings will also be without Arron Afflalo (personal), Kosta Koufos (rest) and Anthony Tolliver (rest) on Friday. Darren Collison should see an uptick in playing time with Lawson sidelined. Tyreke Evans and Langston Galloway and may see a few additional minutes as well.
Mar 31 - 12:38 PM

Ty Lawson (quad) has been upgraded to probable for Wednesday's game vs. Utah.

The Kings are leaning into their youth movement and it's impossible to rely on Lawson down the stretch, but at least he might give deep-league owners something tonight.
Mar 29 - 8:57 PM

Ty Lawson (quad) is questionable to play Wednesday vs. the Jazz.

If Lawson is out, that will leave just Darren Collison, Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and Ben McLemore as the only available players in Sacramento's backcourt. Hield has been playing very well as of late, although with 10 games on a slate and a tough matchup vs. the Jazz, he's not necessarily a must-start guy. Lawson has been hit-or-miss this season, but typically when Collison and Tyreke Evans are active, it's a miss.
Mar 29 - 5:55 PM

Ty Lawson (knee) returned to action in Monday's game against the Grizzlies, finishing with 10 points over 19 minutes.

Lawson was a late scratch Sunday due to a stiff right knee, but he didn't seem to be terribly impacted by the ailment. He drew plenty of contact, getting to the line 10 times in his 19 minutes while converting six times from the stripe. If you normally rely upon him in seasonal play he can safely be plugged back into the lineup.
Mar 28 - 1:59 AM

Ty Lawson (right knee stiffness) was a late scratch vs. the Clippers on Sunday.

Lawson's injury wasn't reported until well after the game began, so this will burn more than a few owners in DFS and deep leagues. He's a perpetual DNP risk even when healthy, and there should be many more reliable options on the waiver wire.
Mar 26 - 3:57 PM

Ty Lawson will return to the bench for Sunday's game against the Clippers.

With both Darren Collison (rest) and Tyreke Evans (rest) getting back to the court tonight, Lawson's value figures to take a pretty sizeable hit. He's not a great option today with 10 games on the slate.
Mar 26 - 3:45 PM

Ty Lawson says he feels like a weight has been lifted off his shoulders after getting through a court appearance on Thursday.

Lawson denied he violated his probation stemming from a drunken driving case in 2015 and had his next hearing pushed back to May 4. This means he will not be disciplined by the NBA this season. Lawson started at PG on Friday vs. the Warriors and finished with 20 points, two assists and two 3-pointers. "He looked much more relieved," said coach Dave Joerger. "He was the Ty that we know that he is still."
Mar 25 - 10:43 AM

Ty Lawson scored 20 points with two assists, one steal and two 3-pointers against the Warriors on Friday.

He did his damage early with 18 points in the first half, but the Kings went away from him in the second half. Considering Lawson will likely be rested for several games, he can stay on the wire in fantasy.
