Nuggets waive forward J.J. Hickson

Forward/center J.J. Hickson has been waived by the Denver Nuggets.

What It Means:

He almost had no chance to stay on the roster. Hickson could latch on to another team, but he does't have a great chance of making the rotation with most squads.

Hickson is logging just 15.3 minutes per game, the least since his rookie season, while appearing in 20 contests. He's averaging 6.9 points and 4.4 rebounds per game on a 50.5 Effective Field Goal Percentage, which is on par with his career average. Hickson ranks 76th with a -0.3 nERD.
