​Sacramento Kings point guard Ty Lawson's roster spot could be in danger at the worst time for his career.

ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting that Lawson missed a team flight to Kentucky and faces an uncertain future on the roster, at best.

Lawson's career has already taken a dramatic downturn after his fourth drunk driving incident in July 2015. Lawson saw his Denver Nuggets tenure end acrimonilously, his time with the Houston Rockets was a failure, and he barely even played for the Indiana Pacers.

Lawson's best opportunity to revive his career came when he signed with the Kings this summer. The organization is generally a forgiving one and incumbent point guard Darren Collison was eventually suspended for the first eight games of the season for a domestic violence incident.

The price for Lawson salvaging his career was a completely non-guaranteed contract.

The Kings wouldn't face any financial penalty for releasing Lawson, and if he can't earn the trust of the organization, that seems like the next move they'll make. Either Jordan Farmar or Isaiah Cousins will likely start at point guard to begin the season if Lawson is gone.
