Tonight's preseason starters:
Let's go, #Nuggets!
Nuggets bad: Shooting still a problem, the Hickson-Faried combo is still abject disaster.
Hickson didn't play much in the preseason. Arthur was hurt. So he has to work to get into the rotation. https://t.co/UkT5OgpKGH

Nice defense from Hickson. Nuggets turn it over to start on their offensive possession. Then Mudiay draws foul on Favors.
J.J. Hickson drops two points in and the Nuggets lead by 2. Meanwhile Hickson’s good play continues.
JJ HICKSON WITH THE FACIAL ON GOBERT!!! #areyoukiddingme #areyousickofhashtags

40 seconds left. #Nuggets
J.J. Hickson's 19 points, 13 rebounds and 3 blocks was his first game of 19 & 13 since 12/17/13 #Nuggets
JJ Hickson likely to get another start if #Nuggets go big vs. Milwaukee b/c Joffrey Lauvergne (back) will not play.
Let's do this, #Nuggets! https://t.co/h3srbbd4cn
The #Nuggets are starting: Mudiay, Harris, Gallo, Faried, Hickson
Nice give and go from Hickson to Harris starts the game for Nuggets
Seven points for Mudiay and six each for Gallo and Hickson after one.
Bucks 32 - #Nuggets 25.
So, first dead ball, who blinks, Denver or Houston? Malone puts in Hickson or McHale puts in Thornton?
maybe the #Nuggets will just slip Hickson in with the starters instead. Didn't Mark Jackson pull that in a playoff series? . #hilarious
And the #Nuggets did it... Hickson enters as a starter. So funny..
So much of the Nuggets lineup change. Hickson starts at center.
And the Hickson addition to the lineup paying early dividends. He's got 4 points and a rebound #Nuggets
Mudiay w/5 assists and a rebound so far. Two were alley oop passes, one to Manimal and one to Hickson
Both Hickson and Faried working on double doubles again. Faried: 12 & 6, Hickson 10 & 6 #Nuggets
