Nuggets rule Arthur out Wednesday; Hickson questionable


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(4/1/2015) The Nuggets will be without forward Darrell Arthur for Wednesday's game at Utah, reports The Denver Post.

Arthur has missed the last three games with a calf strain. Meanwhile, forward JJ Hickson is experiencing soreness in his right knee and he will be uniform Wednesday, but will only play if it's absolutely necessary.  

The Nuggets are 5 1/2-point underdogs.


Report: Nuggets pushing Hickson-McGee combo for Nets' Lopez


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/30/2015) The Nuggets have been reportedly targeting Nets center Brook Lopez in the run up to the trade deadline, and the team has been pushing a combination of big men JJ Hickson and JaVale McGee in talks with the Nets, ESPN reports.

The Nets, per the report, have refused the Nuggets offer for Lopez, who scored a season-high 35 points on 15 of 28 shooting Friday while hauling in 12 rebounds. The team should have plenty of interested parties looking to add Lopez and his upside before the deadline.


Nuggets PF JJ Hickson posts 15-14 line vs. Celtics Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) Nuggets power forward JJ Hickson scored 15 points on 6 of 8 shooting while hauling in 14 rebounds in his team's 100-99 loss to the Celtics Friday.

Hickson put together his fifth double-double of January in 29 minutes off the bench, but it wasn't enough to keep the Nuggets from suffering their fifth straight loss. He also racked up three assists and two steals Friday. The Nuggets will square off with the Wizards Sunday.


Nuggets' JJ Hickson doubles up Mavericks in losing effort


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) Nuggets reserve JJ Hickson scored 13 points on 5 of 7 shooting and grabbed a team-high 14 rebounds in Denver's 97-89 loss to the Mavericks Friday. It was Hickson's sixth double-double of the season and third in his last five games.

Despite struggling at the free throw line, going 3 of 8, Hickson contributed well, adding one assist on the night. He also had five turnovers.


Trade could give JJ Hickson's value a boost for Nuggets


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2015) JJ Hickson might be the captain of the "Good in Fantasy, bad in real life" All-Stars, which is just fine for Fantasy owners, as long as he gets minutes. With the Nuggets' decision to move Timofey Mozgov Wednesday, a path to a larger role just may have opened up.

The Nuggets will likely lean on rookie Jusuf Nurkic at first, given how well he has played in his first NBA action. However, coach Brian Shaw likes Hickson, and should be willing to give him plenty of run as the backup. Hickson averaged 26.9 minutes per game a year ago, which was enough for him to register 11.8 points and 9.2 rebounds per game. With Nurkic still developing -- and prone to racking up fouls -- it's not hard to see Hickson eventually working his way into a larger role.

Hickson is worth a speculative add in deeper Fantasy leagues, but you shouldn't expect him to be a starting option right away. Still, the stars seem to be aligning for him, and it wouldn't be a surprise if he's racking up double-doubles on a lottery-bound Nuggets team by February. 


Nuggets PF JJ Hickson doubles up vs. Rockets


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

JJ Hickson to have his playing time limited coming off knee surgery


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2014) Nuggets forward JJ Hickson totaled 10 rebounds, eight points and one assist in 15 minutes off the bench Sunday against Portland. Hickson was making his season debut after serving a five-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy.

"I thought he was active," Nuggets coach Brian Shaw said, per The Denver Post. "He got eight points and grabbed 10 rebounds and that’s huge. That’s something he can really do, he’s an elite rebounder per minute when he’s in the game at his position."

Sunday also marked Hickson's first action since suffering a torn ACL in March. Hickson is expected to be limited to around 20 minutes per game as he works back into game shape.

"I felt good," Hickson said. "The first half, the jitters were there. I got tired a little faster than usual because my energy was channeled elsewhere. But I felt way better in the second half and I think it showed."

Hickson underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL in March and was initially targeting a January return. However, he was able to play limited minutes during the preseason in October and could return earlier than expected in a limited role if he proves able to handle the workload and if the team feels it needs to supplement its stable of big men.

The players are all in various stages of their recoveries, with Galinari and McGee likely to be ready for the start of the season, while Hickson is targeting a January return.
