Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Rockets will be without Ty Lawson for two games as the point guard will be suspended for the first of two of his DUI’s.
The suspension is attached to his guilty plea for driving while impaired in November. The suspension starts Saturday when the Rockets take on the Los Angeles Clippers.
The Rockets traded four players and a lottery protected first round pick for Lawson from the Denver Nuggets. Lawson lost his starting job earlier in December and rumors from multiple reports are that the Rockets and Lawson’s management are looking for trade partners.
