Ty Lawson PG DEN 9 Hrs
Lawson scored a team-high 19 points (7-12 FG, 5-6 FT) with 11 assists and three rebounds 35 minutes during Monday's loss to the Clippers.
The Nuggets' point guard has had two impressive outings since missing last Friday's game due to his DUI arrest. As long as he avoids or delays a possible suspension, Lawson should be a nightly threat for a double-double.

Lawson was back in action Sunday after sitting out Friday's game following his arrest on a suspicion of DUI. He came back with a vengeance, putting up 31 points (10-20 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 8-8 FT), three rebounds, 12 assists, and three steals in 42 minutes in the overtime loss.
If found guilty, Lawson will likely face a two-game suspension, but it's unclear when the possible suspension would be handed out from the league. That makes Lawson a risky play in leagues with weekly lineups, but with four games on the docket for the Nuggets this week, he's still essentially a must-play option for Week 14.

Lawson (personal) will play Sunday against the Wizards, the Denver Post reports.
Lawson was arrested early Friday morning under the suspicion of DUI and was held out of Friday night's game against the Celtics as a result. However, it appears that both the Nuggets and the NBA will allow him to play for the time being while they contemplate a possible suspension.

Lawson will not play Friday after being arrested on suspicion of DUI earlier in the day, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.
He is not suspended, he just is not with the team Friday. Lawson will rejoin the Nuggets on Saturday, and any punishment will be handed out by the league after his case is resolved. Look for Jameer Nelson to get the start at point guard Friday, and it sounds like Lawson will play Sunday against the Wizards, barring league action.

Lawson was arrested on a suspicion of DUI charge in Denver on Friday morning, Denver Post writer Kieran Nicholson reports.
Denver police confirmed the arrest. If the charge sticks, it's obviously an extremely bad look for Lawson, both because of the charge itself and the fact that Denver plays against Boston on Friday. The Nuggets have yet to comment, and his status for Friday's game is not yet known. If Lawson sits, Jameer Nelson should take up a big role at point guard.

Lawson Struggled offensively in Tuesday's loss to the San Antonio Spurs, finishing with four points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 33 minutes.
Lawson simply just didn't shoot the ball as many times as he's been used to. He's averaging 13.3 field goal attempts per game, so considering he only shot the ball six times, fantasy owners shouldn't be worried. Expect him to get back towards his season average in shot attempts in Friday's game against the Boston Celtics, which will then allow Lawson to score much closer to the 16.7 points per game average he's had so far this season.

Lawson scored 22 points (7-15 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT) with three rebounds, seven assists, and two steals during Saturday's loss to the Timberwolves.
Lawson has stepped up his scoring in January, putting up 20 points or more in six out the eight games this month along with four double-doubles. While he leads the league in assists (10.1 assists per game) his low free throw percentage (71.6 percent) and lack of scoring from beyond the arc have him ranked outside the top 10 among point guards this season.

Lawson tied his season high with 29 points in a win over the Mavericks on Wednesday and picked up his 18th double-double of the year by dishing out 12 assists.
Lawson has been one of the top fantasy point guards this season. He's third among all point guards in double-doubles, behind only John Wall and Chris Paul, and he's second in the league in assists through Wednesday's games.

Lawson (knee) left Tuesday's practice early but started Wednesday in Orlando, finishing with 23 points (9-14 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), three rebounds, five assists, one steal and five turnovers in 34 minutes.
Lawson should be fine after playing close to his regular amount of minutes and having a strong performance. The Nuggets next game is Friday in Sacramento.
