Chris Dempsey, who covers the Nuggets for the Denver Post, tweeted the following from Nuggets coach Brian Shaw .
Brian Shaw on Lawson: "He's doing better but still not well enough to...I don't think he's close to getting back on the court.." #NuggetsShaw previously said it's not a big deal if Lawson rests the last five games of the season, since the Nuggets are long out of playoff contention. Aaron Brooks started for Lawson against the Rockets and will continue to do so in his absence. Randy Foye and Evan Fournier round out the Nuggets' back court trio.
