Ty Lawson is out with a plantar fascia tear in his right heel and will not have to undergo surgery, the Denver Nuggets announced on Friday.

Lawson suffered the injury on March 19 against the Oklahoma City Thunder and missed three of the Nuggets' next four games. Further exams on Thursday revealed a tear.

The Nuggets call Lawson day-to-day.

Lawson, who leads the Nuggets in scoring and assists, is improving in his recovery and will maintain his current treatment.
