DENVER (AP) -- Nuggets coach George Karl believes his team will maintain their fast-paced offense even with speedy point guard Ty Lawson on the sideline.

Lawson is out indefinitely with a plantar fascia tear in his right foot.

Veteran Andre Miller will start in Lawson's place when they play Wednesday night in Utah and rookie Evan Fournier will be called upon to spell the 37-year-old Miller.

Neither player can match Lawson, but there are other ways to keep up the quickness down the court.

Said Karl after practice Monday: "It's going to be more of a team commitment, to keep the pace at a high level."

The Nuggets have a precarious grasp on the third seed in the Western Conference standings with eight games remaining.
