Ty Lawson has been ruled out for Monday night's game after breaking one of his left ribs. Backup Nate Robinson is out due to a sprained anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee.
Coach Brian Shaw says he spent Sunday's day off searching for a solution and has decided to use Randy Foye at the point. He's hoping his versatile big men can help out with the ballhandling, too.
Finding a point guard isn't the only injury problem for Shaw. Denver also will be without Danilo Gallinari (left knee) and JaVale McGee (left leg), leaving the Nuggets (24-25) without almost one-third of their roster against the NBA-leading Pacers (39-11).
