NBA suspends Ty Lawson 3 games over drunken-driving case
Last month, the former Denver Nuggets guard was suspended for two games without pay for a drunken-driving case in Colorado last January. He pleaded guilty to driving while ability impaired and a lane violation, and he faces up to 180 days in jail when he is sentenced Jan. 14.
The incident in Los Angeles happened in July, about the time he was traded to the Rockets.
In 32 games this season, Lawson is averaging 6.4 points and 4.3 assists over 24.8 minutes per game.
