Default replacement tire

I have roughly 14k on my tires. Yesterday I had a nasty flat that will need replaced. The tires are Dunlop direzza star SPEC sport z1. They have a 200 tread wear rating. How much truth is there to the negative impact of having two sized tires? Is buying two tires an option? I'm assuming one tire is out of the question. Thanks in advance for any advice. On my phone so I apologize for the lack of paragraphs.

You can replace one tire. Just call tire rack and have them shave it down to the same tread depth as the others. It costs $25 for the shaving.
