Houston Rockets point guard Ty Lawson has reportedly been suspended two games by the NBA following DUI charges, according to Yahoo Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

The punishment was handed down Friday following a "recent resolution in his court case," per Wojnarowski.

According to 9News.com's Allison Sylte, Lawson pleaded guilty on Nov. 19 to driving while impaired and failure to drive in a single lane after he was arrested on Jan. 23.

In July, Lawson was arrested again in Los Angeles on suspicion of DUI. The Denver Nuggets traded him to the Rockets less than a week later.

Wojnarowski also reported "the Rockets' front office has been cooperating with Lawson's representatives" as the two sides seek to find a new team for the point guard.

Wojnarowski added the team's desire to trade Lawson has not stemmed from his ability to meet off-court requirements. Rather, it's the result of an inability to mesh with the Rockets' scheme—which heavily features James Harden in ball-handling roles.
