Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson's indefinite absence with torn plantar fascia in his right heel and the team's lack of bodies at his position have some thinking about outside avenues to get additional help at point guard.

Veteran Andre Miller was the only true point guard available to play against Brooklyn on Friday night. Julyan Stone would normally be tossed into the mix, but he has a sprained MCL in his right knee and is out.

Against the Nets, the Nuggets cobbled together ball handling under the "playmaking" umbrella, which gives credence to allowing players such as wing Andre Iguodala extended time in a point guard-type role. His decision making, if not his ball handling, is on a point guard level.

And though this is going to be an issue until Lawson feels well enough to return and give the Nuggets some minutes, coach George Karl isn't a fan of going out and adding someone to the roster at the point guard position.

The Nuggets, with the NBA maximum-allowed 15 contract players already on the roster, couldn't do much of anything about it anyway.
