Active Back-to-back Open link
Lawson will be active and in the starting lineup for Wednesday's season finale vs. the Warriors. He was held out of Monday's loss for the purposes of rest, and there was some concern heading in that he could be held out again. Lawson's presence will take back minutes in the backcourt from Erick Green and Gary Harris, though there will be a few extra minutes available on Wednesday given Randy Foye (rest) and Jameer Nelson (hip) have been ruled out.
4/13/2015 8:59 PM
Out Back-to-back Open link
Lawson will be held out of Monday's game vs. the Clippers for the purposes of rest. The rest will allow the Nuggets to improve their lottery chances and get an extended look at their younger players. Erick Green, Gary Harris, and Randy Foye will see extended run in the backcourt on Monday in Lawson's absence, with Jameer Nelson (hip) also unavailable.
4/7/2015 1:54 PM
Active Sore right forearm Open link
Lawson will return to the lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Lakers, according to coach Melvin Hunt, after being a very late scratch on Saturday due to a sore right forearm. He suffered the injury during Friday's loss, although there were no indications prior to the late announcement that his not playing Saturday was a possibility. Lawson will be backed up at point guard by Randy Foye and Gary Harris on Wednesday, with Jameer Nelson (hip) having been ruled out for the game.
4/4/2015 8:03 PM
Out Sore right forearm Open link
Lawson was a late scratch for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers due to soreness in his right forearm. He suffered the injury during Friday's loss, although there were no indications prior to the late announcement that his not playing was a possibility. Jameer Nelson will draw the start at point guard in Lawson's place, with Randy Foye and Gary Harris to also see additional run in the backcourt on Saturday.
3/16/2015 11:28 AM
Out Rest Open link
Lawson, Kenneth Faried, and Danilo Gallinari will all be rested on Monday vs. the Grizzlies in the second leg of a back-to-back. This is more of a mechanism for the Nuggets to improve their lottery chances and get an extended look at their younger players than anything, and we can expect more of the same from them moving forward. Jameer Nelson and Erick Green will handle the point guard duties in Lawson's place, while the absences of Gallinari and Faried will open up minutes for Will Barton and JJ Hickson.
3/15/2015 3:45 PM
Active Illness Open link
Lawson will return to the lineup on Sunday vs. the Pelicans after a one-game absence due to illness. His sitting out on Friday came out of nowhere as there were no previous reports that he was under the weather. Lawson will be stepping into an expanded role on Sunday and will have to carry more of the offensive burden than usual with Wilson Chandler (knee) and Randy Foye (rest) ruled out.
3/13/2015 6:51 PM
Out Illness Open link
Lawson has been ruled out for Friday's game vs. the Warriors due to illness. This one came out of nowhere as there were no previous reports that he was under the weather. Jameer Nelson will likely draw the start at the point in Lawson's place on Friday, with Randy Foye and Erick Green seeing additional run in the backcourt as well.
2/22/2015 5:47 PM
Active Disciplinary Open link
Lawson will start on Sunday vs. the Thunder, as expected, after being a healthy scratch on Friday due to what the Nuggets termed "internal discipline." He was a no-show to Wednesday's practice, citing "travel issues" as he was coming from Las Vegas. Coach Brian Shaw was understandably not happy with Lawson's unexcused absence, especially given that he did not contact the team telling them he wouldn't be there. "We had a week off or nine days between games, and you expect everybody to be here," Shaw said. "It disrupts the planning of everything, in terms of you count on somebody in practice. But he's not here so we had to go without him." This comes after Lawson's domestic incident in the summer of 2013, his missing a team meeting late last season, and his arrest in January on suspicion of DUI. His return will push Jameer Nelson back to a more limited reserve role and take back a few minutes from Randy Foye and Gary Harris in the backcourt.

He was a no-show to Wednesday's practice, citing "travel issues" as he was coming from Las Vegas.

Jameer Nelson will draw the start in his place on Friday, with Randy Foye and Gary Harris also in line for additional run off the bench.
2/20/2015 6:57 PM
Questionable Disciplinary Open link
Lawson is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Bucks for disciplinary reasons, although his specific status beyond that is not yet clear. He was a no-show to Wednesday's practice, citing "travel issues" as he was coming from Las Vegas. Coach Brian Shaw was understandably not happy with his unexcused absence, especially given that he did not contact the team telling them he wouldn't be there. "We had a week off or nine days between games, and you expect everybody to be here," Shaw said. "It disrupts the planning of everything, in terms of you count on somebody in practice.

This comes after Lawson's domestic incident in the summer of 2013, his missing a team meeting late last season, and his arrest in January on suspicion of DUI. Jameer Nelson will draw the start in his place on Friday, and we'll look for further updates on Lawson's availability.

This comes after Lawson's domestic incident in the summer of 2013, his missing a team meeting late last season, and his arrest in January on suspicion of DUI. It's not clear if Lawson will face any disciplinary punishment from the Nuggets for his absence, and for now we'll assume that he'll be in the starting lineup for Friday's game vs. the Bucks.
1/24/2015 2:44 PM
Active Arrested Open link
Lawson will return to the lineup on Sunday vs. the Wizards after a one-game absence due to an arrest early Friday morning. He was charged with driving under the influence, speeding, and careless driving. Any punishment will be handed out by the league after Lawson's case is resolved, and he could be facing a two-game suspension for the drunk-driving charge. His return will push Jameer Nelson and Randy Foye back to more limited reserve roles.
1/23/2015 6:00 PM
Out Arrested Open link
Lawson will not be active for Friday's game vs. the Celtics. He was arrested early Friday morning and charged with driving under the influence, speeding, and careless driving. He's expected to return to the team on Saturday, and any punishment will be handed out by the league after his case is resolved. He could be facing a two-game suspension for the drunk-driving charge, and we'll post more updates as information warrants. Jameer Nelson and Randy Foye will see the run at point guard for the Nuggets during any games that Lawson would miss.
1/23/2015 12:00 PM
Doubtful Arrested Open link
Lawson was arrested early Friday morning and charged with driving under the influence, speeding, and careless driving. We're still waiting for more details to emerge here, but Lawson almost certainly won't play Friday and could be looking at a two-game suspension for the drunk-driving charge. The Nuggets have yet to issue any comments on the incident "per team policy and out of respect for the legal process." We'll post more updates as information warrants. Jameer Nelson and Randy Foye will see the run at point guard for the Nuggets during any games that Lawson would miss.
1/7/2015 6:27 PM
Active Bruised knee Open link
Lawson will be in the lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Magic, as expected. He didn't take part in all of the Nuggets' practice on Tuesday due to his bruised knee but was considered probable in advance of the game. Lawson suffered the injury when he bumped knees during Monday's win over the Timberwolves but it appears to not have been serious and will not cost him any time going forward.
1/6/2015 1:52 PM
Probable Bruised knee Open link
Lawson didn't take part in all of the Nuggets' practice on Tuesday due to a bruised knee but remains likely to play on Wednesday vs. the Magic. He suffered the injury when he bumped knees during Monday's win over the Timberwolves, but the early indications are that it's not serious and it doesn't appear that he'll need to miss any time. Nate Robinson and Gary Harris would see the run at point guard on the off chance that Lawson were to be held out on Wednesday.
12/22/2014 4:40 PM
Active Sore back Open link
Lawson will be active for Monday's game vs. the Hornets after skipping morning shootaround due to soreness in his lower back. There haven't been many additional details provided here, but it appears that his soreness was a minor issue, with coach Brian Shaw having said earlier that he opted for treatment instead of shootaround. Teammate Darrell Arthur (leg) was ruled out of Monday's game earlier in the day.
12/14/2014 8:05 PM
Active Head Open link
Lawson will return to Sunday's game after suffering an eye laceration late in the second quarter while knocking heads with Manu Ginobili. He headed to the locker room shortly after, but received treatment and appears good to go.
11/9/2014 6:37 PM
Active Sore left ankle Open link
Lawson will play on Sunday after being a late scratch on Friday due to continued ankle soreness. He won't be at 100 percent on Sunday, and real questions remain as to whether or not he'll be close to 100 percent at any point this season. Lawson's return will push Nate Robinson back to the bench, as well as take some surplus minutes back from Randy Foye.
11/8/2014 12:59 AM
Questionable Sore left ankle Open link
Lawson was a late scratch on Friday due to left ankle soreness, although he said he knew after morning shootaround that he wasn't playing, due to swelling. Lawson said that he'll try to play on Sunday but isn't sure if that will happen as of yet. He entered the season with lingering concerns about the ankle and has obviously been playing at less than 100 percent in the early going, and expectations should be that this will be an on-going issue indefinitely. Nate Robinson will start at point guard if Lawson is out again on Sunday, with Randy Foye to also see a significant minutes boost, given that NateRob remains on a minutes limit as he works his way back from ACL surgery.
11/7/2014 8:59 PM
Out Left ankle soreness Open link
Lawson is a late scratch on Friday due to left ankle soreness. Lawson entered the season with concerns about the ankle and has obviously been playing at less than 100 percent in the early going. We'll have to see if the Nuggets elect to hold him out beyond Friday's game, but it was said in the preseason that his ankle would likely need "constant care." Nate Robinson will start on Friday, with Randy Foye to also see extra run with Lawson sidelined.
11/3/2014 12:52 PM
Active Sore left ankle Open link
Updating a previous report, Coach Brian Shaw said Lawson is available and will play in Monday's game vs. the Kings. He has been dealing with left ankle soreness, which is concerning in any case as he's already having issues with that troublesome ankle just two games into the season. It has clearly hampered his effectiveness so far, and owners should expect it to be an issue that Lawson will have to deal with and manage throughout the season.
11/3/2014 12:17 PM
Questionable Sore left ankle Open link
Lawson is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Kings with left ankle soreness. The team will update his status after shootaround, but this is concerning in any case as he's already having issues with that troublesome ankle just two games into the season. It has clearly hampered his effectiveness so far, and owners should expect it to be an issue that Lawson will have to deal with and manage throughout the season. Nate Robinson and Randy Foye would see additional run at the point in Lawson's place if he has to miss any time.
10/27/2014 2:33 PM
Probable Right hamstring, left ankle Open link
Lawson returned to practice on Monday and is expected to be ready for Wednesday's season opener after spending most of the past 10 days resting his tight hamstring. The Nuggets were exercising complete caution with Lawson, given his importance to the team and also that his left ankle still isn't quite 100 percent. Nuggets beat writer Chris Dempsey suggested earlier in the preseason that his ankle will require "constant care" during the season, and coach Brain Shaw admitted to "some concern" of overworking Lawson in the early-going, so you shouldn't expect him to begin the season at his minutes ceiling.
10/24/2014 9:10 PM
Questionable Right hamstring, left ankle Open link
Lawson will be held out of Friday's preseason finale, as expected, as the team aims to have him ready to go for the start of the regular season. Lawson tweaked his right hamstring during Saturday's exhibition and was not able to return as he was experiencing some tightness. Of note is that he's also dealing with a troublesome left ankle, an injury that Nuggets beat writer Chris Dempsey suggests will require "constant care" this season, and coach Brain Shaw admitted to "some concern" of overworking Lawson in the early-going. Given Lawson's early injury concerns, you'll want to be careful to not over-reach for him on draft day. We'll continue to update his status in advance of the Nuggets' season opener on Wednesday.
10/23/2014 5:15 PM
Questionable Right hamstring, left ankle Open link
Lawson did not practice on Wednesday or Thursday and remains highly questionable for the Nuggets' preseason finale on Friday, and there is a good chance the team will opt to hold him out and just concentrate on his being ready for the regular season. Lawson tweaked his right hamstring during Saturday's exhibition and was not able to return as he was experiencing some tightness. Of note is that he's also dealing with a troublesome left ankle, an injury that Nuggets beat writer Chris Dempsey suggests will require "constant care" this season, and coach Brain Shaw admitted to "some concern" of overworking Lawson in the early-going. Given Lawson's early injury concerns, you'll want to be careful to not over-reach for him on draft day.
10/21/2014 1:30 PM
Questionable Right hamstring, left ankle Open link
Lawson will sit out Tuesday's preseason game due to a hamstring injury, as expected. He said he's not sure if he'll play in Friday's preseason finale, but would like to in order to keep up his conditioning. Lawson tweaked his right hamstring during Saturday's exhibition and was not able to return as he was experiencing some tightness. We'll continue to keep an eye on his status, but he should be good to go for the season opener. Of note is that he's also dealing with a troublesome left ankle, an injury that Nuggets beat writer Chris Dempsey suggests will require "constant care" this season, and coach Brain Shaw admitted to "some concern" of overworking Lawson in the early-going. Given Lawson's early injury concerns, you'll want to be careful to not over-reach for him on draft day.

Questionable Left ankle Open link
Lawson was not able to finish the Nuggets' Sunday practice, reportedly due to his troublesome left ankle, and his status for Monday's preseason game is currently questionable. The Nuggets planned to limit Lawson throughout the preseason in the interest of his long-term health, but what's clear is that he's not quite 100 percent at this point. Nuggets beat writer Chris Dempsey suggests that his ankle will require "constant care" this season, and coach Brain Shaw admitted to "some concern" of overworking Lawson in the early-going. "But once again, it's something that he's going to have to work himself through," said Shaw. We'll continue to monitor Lawson's status closely leading up to the start of the regular season, and you'll want to be careful to not over-reach for Lawson on draft day.
