Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson will miss tonight's game against the Brooklyn Nets with a plantar fascia tear in right heel, the team announced.

The team says that Lawson suffered the injury March 19 in a 114-104 victory against the Oklahoma City Thunder, causing him to miss three of the next four games. Further examination on Lawson's heel Thursday revealed the tear, and he is listed as day-to-day.

Lawson leads Denver in scoring at 16.7 points a game and dishes out a team-leading 6.7 assists per contest for the Nuggets, who are 49-24 this season and have already clinched a playoff berth.

After tonight's game against the Nets, the Nuggets have the next four days off.
