Hickson scored six points ( 3-5 FG, 0-2 FT) and added four rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 23 minutes of action against the Heat on Wednesday.

Hickson has been putting up mediocre lines and will need a boost in playing time in order to enter fantasy relevance for a 10 team standard league.

Hickson will draw the start Wednesday against the Heat, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Hickson has started back-to-back games while Kenneth Faried has been dealing with a lower back strain, but this hasn't necessarily translated in steady production. Faried is expected to be available off the bench Wednesday, which risks cutting even further into Hickson's minutes.

Hickson drew the start in the absence of Kenneth Faried, but failed to put together a good outing. He finished with four points (1-6 FG, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks, and a steal in 20 minutes.

Hickson was able to salvage some value in the form of defensive stats. However he was otherwise limited due to foul trouble and an overall inability to do much on offense. Denver will find out on Monday whether or not Faried will be back to face off against Toronto. While Hickson may get another start, this performance couldn't have done much to ease the minds of those who need a spot-start.

Hickson will start at power forward for the Nuggets on Sunday, Cliff Dempsey reports.

In the past four games Hickson has been very effective, averaging 9.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 0.8 steals, and 1.3 blocks per game. With an expanded role it will be interesting to see what Hickson can do, while he may be a double-double candidate as long as Kenneth Faried sits out.

Hickson put up seven points (2-5 FG, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and two blocks in 19 minutes off the bench Tuesday.

Hickson is an enigma. Sometimes he goes on a torrential hot streak that makes him look like he'll be a huge boon to fantasy players, and then he gets benched or outright traded or waived because the team he's on simply tires of his erratic production and limited defense. While it's hard to be too definitive about any one player when analyzing coach Brian Shaw's rotation, it would be surprising to see Hickson have a big enough role this season unless the team suffers several injuries and are forced to play him.

Hickson (rest) is back with the team and available to play in Wednesday's game, the Denver Post's Chris Dempsey reports.

He missed Monday's game, as it was the second night of a back-to-back set and coach Brian Shaw wants to allow Hickson to build up strength in his surgically repaired knee. However, he should be available for his typical minor role off the bench Wednesday.

Hickson (rest) will not play Monday against the Cavaliers, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Hickson will be held out Monday on the second night of a back-to-back, as he continues to build strength in his surgically repaired knee. In four games this season - Hickson was suspended for the five games for a drug policy violation - he's played more than 20 minutes on only one occasion.

Hickson scored 14 points (7-11 FG, 0-2 FT), with 11 rebounds and four assists in 21 minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Trail Blazers.

If there was a bright spot for the Nuggets through this tough loss, it's that Hickson looked ready to take on more minutes. Denver needs someone to step up inside right now, and that may very well end up being Hickson. The big man will be a player to keep up with over the next few games.

Hickson will remain on a minutes limit for a couple more weeks, Chris Dempsey of the Denver Post reports.

Hickson made his season debut Sunday, playing 15 minutes in a loss to the Blazers. He'll likely continue to see similar run going forward as he works his way back from a torn ACL.

Hickson (suspension) made his season debut Sunday, scoring eight points and collecting 10 rebounds in 15 minutes off the bench.

Hickson missed the first five games of the season on suspension for violating the NBA's drug policy. He showed up big in his first action of the season, but Hickson is likely to be in a minutes struggle with JaVale McGee, Kenneth Faried, and Timofey Mozgov, limiting his value most games.
