News: Lawson (ankle) did not make the trip with the team to Los Angeles, and will miss Tuesday's game against the Clippers, the Denver Post reports. Impact: There was hope that Lawson would be able to return before the end of the season, but with him being out Tuesday and his status for Wednesday being doubtful, that may not happen. While Lawson sits, Aaron Brooks will continue to start at point guard and provide good fantasy value for the final two games of the regular season.(RotoWire, )

News: Lawson (ankle) will not play Wednesday against the Rockets, the Denver Post reports. Impact: Coach Brian Shaw has said the he expects Lawson to return before the end of the season, but that will all play out over the course of the last week of the season.

News: Lawson, who missed Denver's game on Sunday because of a sprained left ankle, may miss the remainder of the season because of the injury. Impact: With Denver out of the playoff race, the team will shut Lawson down and give their younger players a chance at some playing time.(STATS, 00:30am)

News: Lawson (ankle) did not practice Tuesday, is not expected to play Wednesday, and is not close to returning, the Denver Post reports. Impact: What seems to be happening is that Lawson is openly stating that he's hopeful to return this season, but given that the team is out of playoff contention and that Lawson is reported to be dealing with the worst ankle sprain of his career, it seems highly unlikely that we'll see him back on the court this season. His absence makes Aaron Brooks pretty much a must-own player in all standard leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Lawson (ankle) will not play in Sunday's contest against the Nuggets, the Denver Post reports. Impact: It's no surprise that Lawson is out for Sunday's game. Coach Brian Shaw said that the Nuggets are not going to rush him back, so look for Aaron Brooks to start in his place for as long he remains out.(RotoWire, )

News: Lawson said the ankle sprain he suffered in Friday's game is the worst one he's had, and it was so swollen it looked "like there's water in it," the Denver Post reports. "Hopefully a couple of days I'll be back right, get the swelling down," he said. Impact: Lawson put up 16 points and three assists in 32 minutes, before limping off the court, after rolling his ankle in the fourth quarter. He left the arena in a walking boot and might not play again this season, as the Nuggets only have six games remaining and the team has nothing to gain by running him back out there. It's possible he could be back before the team's last game on Apr. 16 against the Warriors, but owners will want to start targeting Aaron Brooks, as he'll likely get at least a couple starts in Lawson's absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Lawson scored 16 points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 10-12 FT) with three assists, before leaving Friday's loss to Memphis late in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury that put him in a walking boot. He still played 32 minutes, though, and had a pair of steals. Impact: Lawson didn't start the game because he was late to a breakfast meeting but was able to get to the free-throw line often for the second game in a row. With Denver out of the playoff race, the team will likely be conservative with his return, so he may miss Sunday's game at Houston, which may be good news for Aaron Brooks.(RotoWire, )

News: Lawson hurt his ankle late in Friday's game in Memphis. Impact: Lawson went down with an ankle injury with three minutes left in the game but made one of two free throws, before finally heading to the bench. He should be evaluated after the game to decide whether or not he'll miss any time.(RotoWire, )

News: Lawson missed a team meeting and will not start Friday's game versus the Grizzlies, the Denver Post reports. Impact: It looks like just a slap on the wrist for Lawson, as the punishment isn't likely to affect his minutes against a Memphis team battling for a playoff berth. Aaron Brooks will get the start in his place.(RotoWire, )
