It will be a difficult blow to come back from for the Denver Nuggets if their point guard has to miss the start of the postseason. But that's what may happen. Ty Lawson has been diagnosed with a tear of his plantar fascia and could miss weeks.
According to Aaron Lopez of NBA.com, the Nuggets are optimistic about the tear, but they are not willing to say exactly when Lawson will be back. They'll just say that he could miss weeks. This type of injury is difficult to predict, and like plantar fasciitis the recovery time differs depending on the person.
If Lawson were to miss "weeks," he could be out when the playoffs start. The Nuggets are in third place in the Western Conference with a 30-24 record. The postseason is just around the corner, so Lawson's injury could put a major crimp in the Nuggets' plans to fly under the radar and make some noise. However, if he can return before the playoffs start, the Nuggets should be fine.
Lawson has averaged 16.7 points and 6.9 assists per game this season. In his career, he has averaged 13.2 points and 5.3 assists per game.
