Default 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.

Default Re: Ty Lawson has a plantar fascia tear in his right heel

The Denver Nuggets could use some good news on the injury front. That came Saturday as point guard Ty Lawson hit the court for the first time since discovering the severity of his plantar fasciitis
With Lawson still planning on returning to the Nuggets' lineup before the end of the regular season, the team is already talking about initially bringing him back in a more limited role.
Coach George Karl mentioned the possibility of keeping his minutes down in order to speed up his recovery, which could happen considering Lawson would prefer not to be thrown back into the fire in a postseason atmosphere.
"(I want to play in) at least two, three games so I can get a feel for the game back, get some game-time repetitions in," Lawson said

Default Re: Ty Lawson has a plantar fascia tear in his right heel

Nuggets guard Ty Lawson (heel) participated in light drills with the team on Saturday in his quest to return to the lineup before the end of the regular season, the Denver Post reports. Lawson said his heel "felt alright" after the workout, but did not provide a timetable for his return to the lineup. "Iím going to keep doing this for the next couple of days and try and figure out what Iím going to do," said Lawson, who leads the team with 16.7 points per game this year. "(I want to play in) at least two, three games so I can get a feel for the game back, get some game-time repetitions in."
