Top Vlatko Cancar News

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Scores 13 points off bench

    Cancar produced 13 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt) and five rebounds across 21 minutes during Wednesday's 120-100 victory over Houston.

    Cancar has been playing well off the bench for the Nuggets and delivered another strong performance here, missing just one shot from the field and recording double-digit scoring numbers for the third time across his last four appearances. While Cancar is not expected to start anytime soon, he's averaging 11.3 points per game during that four-game stretch.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Excels from bench

    Cancar closed with 13 points (4-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two assists, one block and one steal in 25 minutes during Friday's 114-104 victory over the Clippers.

    With Michael Porter (heel) still inactive, Cancar continues to post impressive numbers. His solid play as a fill-in for the second unit could earn him more playing time even when Porter returns, so he's worth a spot on your fantasy watchlist.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Drops season-high 20 points

    Cancar accumulated 19 points (7-18 FG, 3-10 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, five assists and three blocks in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 131-126 overtime win over the Thunder.

    Cancar stepped up in a big way for the injury-depleted Nuggets, coming off the bench to score a season-high 20 points. As a player who is often out of the rotation, this was a career-best night for a player who has always had a small amount of intrigue about him. If Michael Porter (heel) is to miss more time, Cancar could be worth a look, at least in deeper formats.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Cracks 23 minutes in thumping loss

    Cancar finished with eight points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), one rebound, two assists and one steal across 23 minutes during Friday's 127-99 loss to the Mavericks.

    Cancar played a whopping 23 minutes Friday, a garbage-time special if ever there was one. The Nuggets were blown out by the Mavericks, meaning the second and third units saw a ton of run down the stretch. Clearly, there are no moves to be made from a fantasy perspective, but it is nice to see the fringe guys getting some run.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Minimally involved early

    Cancar amassed no counting stats across three minutes during Wednesday's 110-99 victory over the Lakers.

    Cancar has seen action in just two games so far this season for a total of four minutes. It's unlikely his role will improve a ton in the near future barring a rash of injuries.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Coming back to Denver

    Cancar and the Nuggets agreed to a three-year deal with a final-year team option Thursday, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    Drafted by the Nuggets with the 49th overall pick in 2017, Cancar has seen sparse action with Denver over the past three seasons. Last year, in 11.7 minutes per game across 15 appearances, he averaged 4.1 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Back in action Sunday

    Cancar (foot) finished with two points (1-2 FG, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds and four assists across 24 minutes in Sunday's 146-141 overtime loss to the Lakers.

    Suiting up for the first time since Jan. 3, Cancar was expected to have a minute restriction in his return from right foot surgery, but any playing-time limit wasn't evident in his workload during the regular-season finale. In fact, the 24 minutes were Cancar's most in any of his 15 appearances on the season. Cancar likely won't approach that level of run during the playoffs, if he's even a part of head coach Michael Malone's rotation at all. The Nuggets were resting several key players Sunday -- including MVP candidate Nikola Jokic -- which opened up more playing time for everyone that suited up.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Available for regular-season finale

    Cancar will be available for Sunday's game against the Lakers, but he'll face a minutes restriction, Harrison Wind of DNVR Sports reports.

    This is a great development for the 2017 second-rounder, who hasn't played since suffering a broken bone in his foot back in early January. While he likely won't have much of a role for the Nuggets in the playoffs, it's nonetheless encouraging that he's back to availability.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Trending toward playing Sunday

    Cancar (foot) is trending toward playing Sunday against the Lakers, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Cancar has been out since early January due to a broken bone in his foot. He mentioned in March that he was aiming to return before the end of the regular season, and it seems like that will be the case. He'll presumably be on a minutes limit if he returns Sunday.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Resumes on-court work

    Cancar said March 16 that the broken bone in right foot and has fully healed, and the 24-year-old is aiming to return to the lineup before the end of the regular season, Chris Marlowe of Altitude Sports reports.

    At the time of the update, Cancar relayed that he had resumed light practicing in addition to running and jumping, but the Nuggets haven't provided any sort of follow-up note regarding where he stands in his recovery two weeks later. Cancar may have reached the day-to-day phase recovery at this point, but even if he's available for any of the Nuggets' final four regular-season contests, he's not expected to have a significant role off the bench.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Out three months after surgery

    Cancar (foot) has undergone surgery for his right fifth metatarsal fracture and will be re-evaluated in three months, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    As expected, Cancar is headed for an extended absence due to a broken foot. The hope at this point is that the reserve forward will be available for the playoffs.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Out indefinitely

    Cancar was diagnosed with a right foot fracture Tuesday and will be sidelined indefinitely, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Wind reports that Cancar's next step is still being discussed, so there are no imminent plans for surgery. The Slovenian native had just begun to carve out a role off Denver's bench, playing double-digit minutes in seven straight games. In his absence, 10-day signee Davon Reed could step into Cancar's limited reserve role.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Helped off court

    Cancar was helped to the locker room during Monday's game against Dallas after suffering an ankle injury, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    The specifics of Cancar's injury are unknown at this time, but it's safe to assume that he's done for the night after needing assistance getting to the locker room. Davon Reed could pick up a few extra minutes in Cancar's absence.

    Cancar (nose) is expected to be available for Monday's matchup with the Mavericks, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

    After suffering a nose injury during Saturday's game against the Rockets, Cancar shouldn't miss any time as he's expected to be ready for Monday's contest. The 24-year-old tied his season high in points Saturday despite the injury and has been playing well averaging 7.8 points and 2.8 rebounds over his last five games.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Likely available Monday

    Cancar (nose) is probable for Monday's game against the Mavericks, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Cancar suffered the nose injury during Saturday's win over the Rockets, but it shouldn't prevent him from suiting up Monday. He tied a season high with 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt) in 15 minutes prior to going down with the injury against Houston.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Questionable to return Saturday

    Cancar (nose) is questionable to return to Saturday's matchup with the Nuggets, Mike Singer of The Denver Post reports.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Available for short stints

    Cancar (illness) will be available for short 2-3 minute stints for Saturday's matchup against the Rockets, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Cancar's presence, even in short bursts, will be useful to the shorthanded Nuggets. In his past five appearances, he's averaged 6.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 17.4 minutes.

  • Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Listed as questionable

    Cancar (illness) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Rockets, Harrison Wind of TheDNVR.com reports.

    Cancar missed Tuesday's game against the Warriors with an illness but has a chance to return Saturday. If he's available, his workload will be determined based on whether Aaron Gordon (hamstring) and Austin Rivers (thumb) are able to play.

    Cancar (illness) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Warriors.

    Cancar is at risk of missing a second straight game. Aaron Gordon (hamstring) is also questionable, so the Nuggets could again be shorthanded in the frontcourt.
