According to the Denver Post's Tom McGhee, Lawson will also have to serve 48 hours of community service and complete 52 hours of therapy.
Independent of his troubles off the court, this has been Lawson's worst season in his seven-year NBA career. In 55 games for the Houston Rockets, he averaged 5.8 points and 3.4 assists per game and shot 38.7 percent from the field. The Rockets waived Lawson on March 1.
The Pacers then signed the 28-year-old on March 7, and he has appeared in two games for the team, playing 20 total minutes and scoring six points while dishing out four assists. He missed five games while dealing with a left foot sprain.

Given his rapid fall from grace, Lawson won't be expected to be a key player for the Pacers in the second half of the season. And barring an injury to George Hill, he won't need to assume starting duties at the point.
Indiana sits seventh in the Eastern Conference, just a half-game ahead of the ninth-place Detroit Pistons. Having a veteran such as Lawson on the bench will be a nice luxury as the Pacers look to solidify their playoff position. If Lawson can come off the bench and provide an offensive spark for short stretches, he'll more than validate the relative risk the team took in signing him in the middle of the year.
