Hibbert announced Tuesday that he'll retire from the NBA, Ashish Mathur of Amico Hoops reports. Hibbert stated "it's just time to move on" and "I'm good on it right now." The 31-year-old big man last played in the NBA during the 2016-2017 season for the Nuggets, although he spent the majority of his playing career with the Pacers (five seasons).
Hibbert will be active and available to play on Sunday versus the Grizzlies, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. Hibbert was dealt from the Bucks to the Nuggets just prior to the trade deadline, but was held out Friday, as the team opted to give him some extra time to get settled in. However, Hibbert is fully expected to be available Sunday and should operate as the Nuggets third option at center. With Nikola Jokic and Mason Plumlee ahead of him on the depth chart, Hibbert will likely play just a minor role off the bench in Denver.
Hibbert (coach's decision) will not be available for Friday's game against the Nets, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports. Hibbert, who was traded to the Nuggets on Thursday, apparently is dealing with transportation issues and won't be in Denver until late Friday night. His next chance to debut with his new team will come Sunday against the Grizzlies.
Hibbert (coach's decision) is listed as questionable to play in Friday's game against the Nets, Harrison Wind of BSN Denver reports. Hibbert was traded from the Bucks to the Nuggets Thursday but will remain a third option in the rotation behind starter Nikola Jokic and backup Mason Plumlee in Denver. Even if Hibbert is made active Friday night, he will likely remain on the bench, and his status won't have any impact on the team's regular rotation. Hibbert only becomes a semi-intriguing fantasy option this season if either Jokic or Plumlee suffer from injury, and even in that case, his impact would likely remain limited.
Hibbert will be traded from the Bucks to the Nuggets on Thursday in exchange for a protected second-round pick, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reports. Hibbert will be making a stop to his third destination this season, after being traded from the Hornets to the Bucks earlier in February. He was buried on the depth chart for the Bucks and had yet to see the floor, although by moving to Denver, a huge bump in minutes shouldn't be expected. Hibbert will be nothing more than a third option behind Nikola Jokic and Mason Plumlee, which should render him useless in the majority of fantasy leagues. This deal was likely more about the salary cap situation than anything.
