The Denver Nuggets have learned they will be without their leading rebounder for the last 13 games of the season.

On Saturday, an MRI revealed that forward J.J. Hickson suffered a torn ACL during the fourth quarter of Friday's loss against the Dallas Mavericks. Hickson left the game following the injury, and was taken to the locker room for additional treatment.

Hickson led the Nuggets last night in scoring and rebounds, with 18 points and 8 rebounds.
