Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson did not play Friday night against the Brooklyn Nets due to a plantar fascia tear in his right heel.

Lawson, who leads Denver in scoring and assists, initially suffered the injury on March 19 at Oklahoma City. He sat out three games before playing 20 minutes Wednesday at San Antonio.

The tear occurred in Oklahoma City, and did not increase in severity when Lawson played against the Spurs.
