The season of "welp" continues as J.J. Hickson tears his ACL against the Dallas Mavericks

In their pursuit to collect all the players who tear their Anterior Cruciate Ligaments, the Denver Nuggets added J.J. Hickson to their ever-expanding list of players who are on the shelf. In an injury suffered Friday night against the Dallas Mavericks (coincidentally the same team Danilo Gallinari suffered his knee injury against last season) J.J. Hickson's MRI today revealed that he suffered the same injury as Nate Robinson and Gallo.

According to Chris Dempsey.
