Ty Lawson has a plantar fascia tear in his right heel
The Denver Nuggets report that guard Ty Lawson has a plantar fascia tear in his right heel and will miss Friday's game against the Nets. No surgery is required for Lawson, but his status is day to day. Lawson was able to play Wednesday against the Spurs, but he was clearly not at 100 percent because of the heel injury.
Analysis: This news comes at the worst time for Fantasy owners who were hoping Lawson would be back at full strength during the playoffs. With the Nuggets headed for the NBA playoffs they will be cautious with Lawson, so we might not see him much during the rest of the regular season. Keep an eye on what develops, but Fantasy owners should prepare to be without Lawson for the near future.
