Nuggets’ J.J. Hickson to miss remainder of the season with torn ACL

Mar 23, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

J.J. Hickson will miss the remainder of the season after suffering a torn ACL injury, Nuggets GM Tim Connelly announced on Saturday via official release.

The injury occurred during the fourth quarter of Friday’s loss to the Mavericks.

Hickson joined the Nuggets on a three-year deal in the offseason as a free agent, and essentially lived up to expectations. He averaged 11.8 points and 9.2 rebounds in 26.9 minutes per game this season, while starting in 52 of his 69 appearances.

Denver has been decimated by injuries, with Danilo Gallinari, JaVale McGee and Nate Robinson all being previously lost for the season.

    This is a shame. I love seeing JJ put people on posters.

    Rest of this season is nothing… they aren’t close to making the playoffs…

    He’ll miss a good portion of next yr too… he’ll be out more games next season than this season…

    And next season, at the beginning of the year anyway, they still have something to play for, meaning the playoffs, unlike the balance of this season…
