      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Struggles in first game off bench

      Lawson came off the bench for the first time this season Wednesday and struggled mightily, notching only two points (1-8 FG) to go with an assist and a steal. Lawson began the year as the Rockets' starting point guard, but was replaced by Jason Terry after shooting just 31.8% from the field to start the season. He still played a solid 20 minutes off the bench, but was still rendered ineffective for the most part. The 28-year-old usually is a decent source of assists, but even that aspect of his game was lacking against the Trail Blazers. Lawson definitely didn't help his case for more playing time with another poor performance, so it'll be tough for him to find his way back into the starting lineup until he finds a way to make more shots from the field.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Won't start Wednesday

      Lawson will come off the bench Wednesday against Portland, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Lawson has been underachieving for the Rockets, and after seeing his minutes decline over the past five games he will now come off the bench while Jason Terry gets the start. Lawson will likely see an again reduced amount of minutes and it is unclear if he will get back to the starting lineup anytime soon.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Could be headed to bench soon

      Coach Kevin McHale said he's entertained the idea of benching Lawson in an attempt to lift the Rockets out of their dismal 4-7 start to the season, ESPN.com's Calvin Watkins reports. A number of players are underachieving for the Rockets in the early going, with Lawson being one of the chief offenders. He's seen his minutes count decline in each of the last five games for the Rockets, averaging a paltry 5.6 points (on 26.2 percent shooting), 5.2 assists, and 2.4 rebounds during that span. The absence of Patrick Beverley (ankle) has perhaps delayed any lineup changes, but Lawson could nonetheless hit the bench temporarily in favor of Jason Terry if for no other reason than to light a fire under Lawson.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Held scoreless in Denver return Friday

      Lawson was held scoreless on 0-for-7 shooting but contributed seven assists, a steal, and a block over 34 minutes in Friday's 107-98 loss to the Nuggets. Lawson simply could not get it going in his return to Denver, and has now shot an atrocious 17 percent (5-for-29) over his last three contests. The veteran guard is averaging a paltry 9.3 points so far this season, almost six points below his last season's 15.2 figure in that category. Lawso also seen a substantial drop in assists over the first nine games, averaging only 5.8 dimes nightly after tallying a 9.6 assists metric in 2014-15.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Grabs double-dobule

      Lawson grabbed a double-double Monday against the Thunder, posting 14 points, five rebounds, 11 assists, and four steals in 37 minutes of action. Lawson has had a rather rocky start to the season, and its finally encouraging to see him have a strong performance alongside James Harden. There have been questions as to whether or not he'd be able to contribute strong fantasy numbers on his new team, but it appears the potential could still be there based on Monday's performance.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Struggles continue Sunday

      Lawson totaled four points (1-3 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, four assists, and one steal in 37 minutes during the Rockets' 109-89 loss versus the Heat on Sunday. Through three games, Lawson is averaging 9.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists, 0.3 steals, 0.3 blocks, and 2.7 turnovers in 37 minutes per game. It has been everything but a smooth transition for Lawson, who was bothered by a sore back towards the end of the preseason. It's unclear whether he is still being hampered by the back issue, as he has played enough minutes to suggest he is fully healthy. If Lawson doesn't start to pick things up, it's possible coach Kevin McHale will decide to shake things up and start Patrick Beverley instead. However, it may be unlikely that McHale will panic and pull the trigger on such a drastic change without giving Lawson more of a chance to settle into his new role. The Rockets look to pick up their first win of the season on Monday versus the Thunder.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Questionable to return Friday after back tightens up.

      Lawson is questionable to return Friday after his back tightened up, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Patrick Beverley started the second half in replace of Lawson who's back tightened up. This is likely the Rockets being cautious in their preseason finale. Lawson should be ready to go as the starting point guard to start the season. Expect his minutes to decrease from his time in 35.5 per game he played in Denver, but he should still be a solid fantasy contributor.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Drops 18 over Pelicans

      Lawson dropped 18 points (6-12 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), two rebounds, five assists and two steals in a preseason win over the Pelicans on Monday. Lawson is in a much worse situation here in Houston, but his value is dropping too far. He is projected right around the 100th pick in drafts and that's just too low for the upside he provides. Yes, James Harden dominates the ball in Houston and Patrick Beverley will garner some minutes, but Lawson can still provide some great numbers as a player who will routinely play 30 minutes in an up-tempo offense.

      Rockets' Ty Lawson: Tallies eight points in return

      Lawson (back) collected eight points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five assists, and three rebounds over 27 minutes in Saturday's 105-100 loss to the Heat. Lawson's return after missing a pair of exhibition contests with his back injury was modestly productive, with the veteran guard sinking a three-point shot for the second consecutive game and setting a preseason high in assists. As has already been stated by head coach Kevin McHale, the Rockets will often utilize Lawson and Patrick Beverley on the court simultaneously this season, making the estimated minutes allotment for each impossible to predict at this point in time. Lawson's willingness to distribute the ball is well documented, as especially evidenced by the career-high number of dimes he's averaged in each of the last two campaigns. With prolific shooter James Harden alongside him, this trait could certainly prove to be a valuable one in the 2015-16 campaign.
