Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Inactive Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar (coach's decision) was inactive Sunday in the Nuggets' 128-114 win over the Timberwolves.

Cancar logged 17 minutes off the bench back in the Feb. 5 win over the Jazz when the Nuggets were down to just seven available players due to injuries and trades ahead of the deadline, but he hasn't seen any action since. The fact that Cancar didn't even dress Sunday suggests that coach Michael Malone doesn't view the rookie as one of the top 13 players on the roster.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Goes unused Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar (coach's decision) wasn't used off the bench Sunday in the Nuggets' 115-107 loss to the Pacers.

Denver was without four players due to injury, affording Cancar the rare opportunity to dress for the contest. Since the game was fairly competitive throughout, however, Cancar ultimately didn't see the floor while coach Michael Malone maintained a 10-man rotation. Cancar has appeared in just seven contests for Denver during his rookie campaign, logging no more than three minutes on any occasion.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Recalled by Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar will be available for Sunday's game against Brooklyn after being recalled by the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

There's a chance that Cancar could the floor for the second time this season, though, it would likely be in a limited capacity. The 22-year-old's played well for Erie this season and is averaging 14.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 28.7 minute across 10 G-League games.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar (illness) finished with 29 points (11-17 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two steals and one block over 38 minutes in Friday's loss to Wisconsin.

Cancar missed Wednesday's game with an undisclosed illness, but it wasn't severe enough to cause him to miss multiple games. The 6-8 forward is averaging 11.4 points and 6.1 rebounds over his first eight appearances.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Inactive Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Tallies double-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar posted 13 points (5-16 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal over 33 minutes in the loss to Lakeland on Sunday.

Cancar wasn't particularly efficient in his scoring Sunday, as he connected on just 31.3 percent of his field goals, but he still managed to record a double-double due to his high volume. Over three games played this season, Cancar has averaged 11 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

Vlatko Cancar: Productive off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar recorded 13 points (3-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), four rebounds and one assist over 19 minutes in Friday's loss to Capital City.

In his second game with Erie, Cancar logged the second-highest points total despite coming off the bench. However, he committed three turnovers and fouled out with 6:23 remaining in the game. He could expand his role with the team if he can limit his mistakes going forward.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar (ankle) is not listed on the Nuggets' injury report for Wednesday's season opener against the Trail Blazers, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Hurts ankle Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nuggets coach Michael Malone said Cancar turned his ankle in Sunday's practice, Chris Dempsey of Altitude Sports reports.

A 2017 second-round pick, Cancar spent the past two seasons overseas before signing with Denver this summer. While the Slovenian forward looks on track to open 2019-20 on the Denver roster, he won't be included in the rotation even if the ankle injury proves to be a non-issue.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Will sign with Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar will sign a contract with the Nuggets, Kendra Andrews of The Athletic reports.

Cancar was a second-round pick in 2017 that Denver has been stashing overseas. Last season, with the Spanish club San Pablo Burgos, he averaged 10.4 points and 3.8 rebounds.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Scores 12 points in Sunday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar collected 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, and two assists in 25 minutes during Sunday's 84-79 win over the Magic.

Cancar was effective as a scorer and had a decent game despite finishing with more turnovers (three) than assists. With hopes of Cancar joining the fold for the 2019-20 season, he'll look to continue making a good impression here in summer league.

Vlatko Cancar: Could join Denver in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Tim Connelly suggested earlier this month that Cancar, a 2017 second-round pick, could join Denver's roster for the upcoming season, Alex Labidou of NBA.com reports. "We've had a lot of luck of drafting guys and let them develop a bit more internationally. In the last two years, he's taken huge steps towards being on our roster," Connelly said of Cancar. "I thought he had a very big summer league last summer, he's a guy who's going to wear a Nuggets uniform sooner rather than later."

The 22-year-old has played overseas since being drafted two years ago and impressed the Denver brass while suiting up for Spanish club San Pablo Burgos in 2018-19. Cancar averaged 10.4 points and 3.8 rebounds per game while shooting 46.4 percent from the floor in Liga ACB play. The Nuggets will likely evaluate Cancar further in the Las Vegas Summer League before deciding whether to sign him to a contract.

Nuggets' Vlatko Cancar: Compiles 11 points in Vegas Summer League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cancar collected 11 points (4-9 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block across 21 minutes during the Nuggets' 70-69 win over the Timberwolves in a Las Vegas Summer League contest Friday.

The 2018 second-round pick couldn't do much from distance, but he did turn in a solid effort overall. Cancar's scoring total led the Denver second unit, and he was able to make his presence felt on the boards to an extent as well. A floor-spacing big man, Cancar has two years of overseas playing experience under his belt already, but there's little chance he sees playing time at the NBA level in the coming season.
