Due to a plantar fascia injury, the Nuggets' Ty Lawson won't be able to play tonight for Denver vs the Nets. Conversely, with a new heel injury, Joe Johnson probably won't go for Brooklyn
As the Nets try to improve to 5-1 on their circus road trip and attempt to keep pace with the Knicks in the Atlantic Division and Knicks and Pacers in the Eastern Conference, they take on the Denver Nuggets tonight in the Mile High City. Denver is a stunning 32-3 at Pepsi Center this season, but will be without its starting point guard in Ty Lawson in its try to reach 33 home victories, who is day-to-day with a plantar fascia injury. On the other hand, the Nets won't have Joe Johnson for the third-straight game. Joe missed the last two, wins against Phoenix and Portland, with a leg contusion but is sidelined with a sore heel.
