Ty Lawson Listed as Day-to-Day with Ankle Injury

By Ben Casey

Just when Ty Lawson seemed to be turning things around, he missed a game due to injury and could miss more.

A few hours before the game last night against the Utah Jazz, multiple sources reported that Ty Lawson would miss the game due to a sprained ankle, and would be listed indefinitely as day-to-day.

Other Houston Rockets players that are out with injuries are Sam Dekker, who is out for a couple more months after back surgery, and Donatas Motiejunas, who will reportedly sit until his back is “pain free” which is troublesome all on it’s own merits. We covered how this is an issue in the recent article: Does Does Motiejunas’ Back Affect Rockets Affect Short and Long Term Goals?

Motiejunas will certainly be missed, and Lawson has just now gotten to the point where he’s been a help to the team (averages of 8.7 points per game, 4.5 assists per game, 54.5 Field Goal Percent over the last six games). It seems that the Rockets can’t catch a break.

One of the biggest issues the team has faced this season is the lack of chemistry, and having players constantly sitting for a game or two is definitely not helping to solve that problem.

Hopefully, the roster will soon return to normal and Houston can work itself into being the elite team that we all hoped to see before the season started.
