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.


An MRI today revealed an right knee ACL tear for F J.J. Hickson. The team’s leading rebounder will miss the rest of the season.

Additionally, Dempsey revealed that Jan Vesely may be the “replacement” at power forward


Expect Jan Vesely to get a big bump in minutes at the reserve PF spot. And starting against his former team, the Wizards.

This season has been. Well, one of those seasons. Time to turn the page.
