    Nuggets' JJ Hickson: Doesn't play in win over Pistons

    Hickson (coach's decision) didn't see the court in Wednesday's 103-92 win over the Pistons. Hickson has been active lately with Wilson Chandler (hip), Jameer Nelson (wrist), and Darrell Arthur (quad) occupying spots on the inactive list, but those absences haven't cleared the way for more playing time for the 27-year-old. He's made only three appearances in the Nuggets' last 32 games, playing a combined total of 13 minutes.

    Nuggets' JJ Hickson: Appears to be over root canal

    Hickson, who missed Wednesday's win over the Warriors after undergoing a root canal, didn't play in Friday's contest against the Heat due to a coach's decision. Hickson has been an infrequent member of coach Michael Malone's rotation since early December, so he likely wouldn't have played Wednesday even if he had been available. It sounds like he's since received clearance to take the court, but he'll likely remain buried on the bench until further notice. He's appeared in just one of the Nuggets' last 18 games.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Will not play Wednesday

    Hickson will not play Wednesday versus the Warriors as he recovers from a root canal, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post. This will be the 16th missed game out of the last 17 for Hickson. It is unclear how long of a potential absence this will be, but he is likely day-to-day. His next opportunity to play will be Friday versus the Heat.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Hasn't played in eight games

    Hickson (coach's decision) didn't play in Saturday's 101-86 loss to the Spurs. The Nuggets were without four players due to injury Saturday, but Hickson unfortunately finds himself as the 11th man in coach Michael Malone's 10-man rotation. Hickson hasn't played since Dec. 8 and should continue to struggle to see the court outside of blowout wins or losses.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Starts and posts double-double

    Hickson started Tuesday and posted a double-double, putting up 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-6 FT), 11 rebounds, and a block in 29 minutes in a loss to the Magic. Hickson received the start after Joffrey Lauvergne was forced to sit out with an illness, and he really took advantage of it. The 29 minutes were his most since November 11, the 10 points were his most since November 24, and the 11 rebounds were his most since November 9. It remains to be seen if Hickson will play this much once Lauvergne returns, but this strong performance certainly doesn't hurt his case for more playing time.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: In the starting lineup Tuesday

    Hickson will start at center in Tuesday's game against the Magic, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Joffrey Lauvergne has recently been starting at center, but since he's dealing with an illness, Hickson will take his spot. With Lauvergne's illness, Hickson will likely see a bump in his overall minutes, although he should move back into a bench role as soon as Lauvergne is back to full health. So far this season, Hickson is averaging 7.8 points, 4.4 rebounds and 1.0 assist over 16 minutes per game.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Starts second half Wednesday

    Hickson started the second half at center Wednesday against the Bulls. Hickson was able to start the second half of Wednesday's tilt although not recording any minutes for the Nuggets' last two games against Milwaukee and Dallas. The 27-year-old projected five points, six rebounds, three assists, and a steal within16 minutes. The center could continue to see similar numbers in the future, however, he is still battling for minutes with fellow centers Joffrey Lauvergne and Nikola Jokic.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Will come off the bench Friday versus Suns

    Hickson will come off the bench Friday versus Suns, Jason Kosmicki of the Denver Nuggets reports. Hickson has been replaced in the starting lineup by Nikola Jokic, who is coming off his best game of the season. It remains to be seen if this is a permanent switch to the staring lineup while Jusuf Nurkic is out.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Scores six in Wednesday's tilt

    Hickson scored six points (2-10 FG, 2-2 FT) and grabbed seven rebounds in 16 minutes in Wednesday's loss to San Antonio. Hickson has started as of late for Denver but has played less than 20 minutes per game in the Nuggets past three games. The forward only plays when Denver chooses to go with a small ball lineup, and he hasn't put up consistent numbers or minutes this season. He's an inconsistent player which makes it a risky decision to put him in a fantasy lineup.

    Nuggets' J.J. Hickson: Likely to stick in starting lineup for two more games

    Hickson will likely remain in the starting lineup at center for at least two more games, as Joffrey Lauvergne (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bucks and Friday's game against the Rockets, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports. Lauvergne could be ready to play when the Nuggets head to Phoenix on Sunday, but in the meantime, the center spot should belong to Hickson, especially while Nikola Jokic also remains limited by a lower-back strain. Though the Nuggets have shown a propensity for using a small-ball lineup on occasion during Lauvergne's absence that features Kenneth Faried at center, the team may not be afforded that luxury with matchups against Greg Monroe and Dwight Howard on the docket. As a result, look for Hickson to log heavy minutes in both contests, making him a reasonable target in daily formats. He's coming off his best game of the season Monday against the Trail Blazers, when he posted 19 points (7-11 FG, 5-11 FT) and 13 boards over 30 minutes.
