Lawson, the 18th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft, will
miss Saturday's contest with the Los Angeles
Clippers and Monday's encounter with the Charlotte Hornets.
Lawson's suspension follows his guilty plea last month to
driving while impaired in Denver in January.
He will be sentenced on Jan. 14.
The 28-year-old Lawson, averaging just 5.9 points per game this
season despite a career average of 13.7, was traded by the
Denver Nuggets to Houston in the off-season.
The Houston Chronicle reported Friday that the Rockets were
trying to trade Lawson, but that no deal was imminent.
The Rockets, a playoff team last season, have made a slow 13-14
start this season.
