Comments Off on Nuggets J.J. Hickson Out For Season With Torn ACL

J.J. Hickson, the Denver Nuggets leading rebounder, will miss the remainder of this season with a torn ACL suffered Friday night against the Mavs.

Hickson is the Nuggets’ leading rebounder at 9.2 per game, and is the fifth-leading scorer at 11.8 points per game.

“He’s had a good season for us,” Shaw said. “J.J. has shown that when he was a starter, and lately as he’s come off the bench, regardless of whether he plays a ton of minutes or he plays lesser minutes, he’s still always around that double-double mark. He’s an elite rebounder for the minutes that he plays.”

Hickson is the fourth Nuggets player to be lost for the season.
