Denver Nuggets guard Ty Lawson was ruled out of Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers because of a left Achilles' tendon strain. Lawson started each of the Nuggets' previous 32 games.

Andre Miller was expected to start in his place Tuesday against the Clippers, who entered with a 17-game winning streak.
