J.J. Hickson: Another Double-Double
Update: Hickson recorded his ninth double-double in a row Wednesday with 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-2 FT) and 14 rebounds in 32 minutes during Portland's demolition of Sacramento.

Recommendation: Hickson, who swatted two shots and picked up an assist on the night, set the longest double-double streak by a Blazer since Kermit Washington in 1980. He now has 17 on the season, tying him with the Lakers' Dwight Howard for third most in the league. Meanwhile, with 17.1 points (on 64.9 percent shooting) and 13.9 boards in 31.0 minutes over his last seven games, there is no coincidence that Portland is 6-1 during that stretch, and most fantasy owners continue to bolster a few prime categories, field goal percentage and rebounds.
