Ty Lawson missed the last six games of the NBA regular season after suffering an ankle injury. At the time, the injury didn’t seem to be a huge concern for the speedy point guard, but several weeks later Lawson’s ankle still isn’t anywhere near 100%.
The Denver Post‘s Christopher Dempsey reports that Lawson still isn’t able to run and won’t be cleared to resume workouts until July. From the Post‘s article:
“Neither an X-ray nor an MRI showed any structural damage in the ankle, and Lawson was told to continue to rest it for the remainder of June.
Lawson expects to begin his offseason conditioning fully in July, with a regimen that will include UFC-style workouts in California with Toronto Raptors DeMar DeRozan and Terrence Ross.”
While we’re still months away from the start of the 2014-15 season, it’s worth keeping an eye on how Lawson’s injury progresses during the offseason. Lawson mentions that surgery has been ruled out, so let’s all hope this is nothing more than a nasty sprain that is a distant memory come October.
