Then, as has been the case with Lawson's 2015-16 campaign, things took a turn for the worst. Lawson drove down the teeth of the Spurs' defense, took a hard bump from Kyle Anderson and fell to the ground writhing in pain:
The diagnosis? A left sprained foot:

Lawson finished with 0 points (0-of-1 shooting), 1 rebound and 2 assists in 5 minutes.
There's no timetable for Lawson's injury yet, but the Pacers' schedule may provide a silver lining for Pacers fans:
The good news: #Pacers have the next four days off. If this foot sprain isn't serious, Ty Lawson could get a good amount of healing time— Candace Buckner (@CandaceDBuckner) March 8, 2016
