LAWSON TWISTS ANKLE, BUT NOT ARRESTED

by Ken Tysiac, The Charlotte Observer

North Carolina point guard Ty Lawson missed a scheduled workout with the Denver Nuggets on Sunday, then twisted his ankle near the end of a workout Monday with the Washington Wizards.

"I think I did well today," he said in a quote provided by the Wizards. "I rolled my ankle near the end. I stopped to get the ball and I slipped, but it is not that bad. It will be fine in a couple of days."

Nuggets media relations director Eric Sebastian said Lawson informed the team Saturday that he would not work out Sunday, apparently because of a minor injury. But the Nuggets said he is scheduled to work out today.

Lawson has declared for the draft but can return for his junior season if he withdraws by Monday and does not hire an agent.

Point guard is considered a position of need for the Nuggets, and Lawson was expected to work out along with Kansas point guard Mario Chalmers on Sunday. Chalmers showed up; Lawson didn't.
