JJ Hickson is four games into the 2012-13 NBA season and he already has four double digit rebound games under his belt.
Analysis: Hickson has always been a bit of a tweener in the NBA but he has always showed us flashes of brillance throughout his young career. If you recall, Hickson was a must add late last year in the fantasy world due to an April which saw him post 15 PPG, 9 RPG and 1 BPG. This year in four games he’s averaging 11.25 RPG and 10.75 PPG. As a center he’s not going to provide you with tons of blocks but he sure does shine as a fantasy power forward. Hickson is 49% from the field for his career, so if he’s given plenty of minutes we may see him back to scoring fifteen points per game again.
Hickson’s free throw shooting is worth mentioning, he’s 67% from the stripe for his career. While 67% isn’t good, he isn’t going to hurt you at the line like a JaVale McGee will. JJ is available in seventy percent of leagues but he won’t last long on the wire.
