Denver Nuggets’ Ty Lawson to return Monday


The Denver Nuggets have been without point guard Ty Lawson for the last nine games.

The Nuggets, who dealt disgruntled veteran point guard Andre Miller to the Washington Wizards and lost point guard Nate Robinson for the remainder of the season because of an ACL injury, had no real replacement for Lawson.

During that span, the Nuggets went 1-8 and have lost 10 of their last 11 games overall to fall to 25-33 on the season.

According to Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post, Lawson will return Monday when the Nuggets host the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In 45 games for the Nuggets this season, Lawson is averaging 18.0 points, 8.8 assists, 3.5 rebound sand 1.5 steals in 35.6 minutes per game.
