Ty Lawson/Nugget update

 Ty Lawson has been absent in the last two Denver Nuggets games due to a bruised heel. A rep for the Nuggets said that "Lawson did participate in Sundays practice and is a hopeful for tonight's game against the New Orleans Hornets". This is a very important game for the Nuggets, as they are trying for their sixteenth straight win. Lawson has been a huge help for the nuggets with an average of 20.6 points per game since the all-star break
