Vlatko Cancar News
According to Mike Singer of the Denver Post, Nuggets forward Vlatko Cancar (knee) had surgery to repair his torn left ACL. He is out indefinitely. The 26-year-old sustained the injury during an international exhibition against Greece while playing for Slovenia. Cancar, who finished last season by averaging 5.0 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists, was forecasted to receive more minutes this season. But now he probably won't play in 2023-24, considering he may need up to 12 months to recover.
Denver Nuggets forward Vlatko Cancar (knee) suffered a torn ACL in his left knee. The 26-year-old, suiting up for Slovenia, sustained the injury during Friday's World Cup exhibition versus Greece. It's horrible news for Cancar, who ended the 2022-23 campaign by averaging 5.0 points, 2.1 rebounds, and 1.3 assists. Although those numbers didn't make him a desirable fantasy asset, he was projected to see an enhanced role in 2023-24, primarily after the Nuggets lost Bruce Brown and Jeff Green in free agency. Unfortunately, Cancar will need surgery, meaning he may miss the entire season.
Denver Nuggets forward/center Vlatko Cancar (wrist) is listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against Chicago. He was also questionable ahead of Monday's contest against Toronto but missed a second consecutive game. The Nuggets have gotten some really solid minutes out of Cancar over the second half of the season. He posted 8.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.4 assists with 50.6 percent shooting from the field last month. Jeff Green has soaked in Cancar's minutes while he's been nursing a right wrist sprain and should do so again Wednesday if Cancar can't play. However, the veteran has done very little during his time on the court and doesn't really offer anything to fantasy managers.
Denver Nuggets forward Vlatko Cancar (wrist) has been tagged as questionable for Monday's contest against the Toronto Raptors. He was unable to play on Friday and his status will likely clear up either way after shootaround. He's been getting some of the most minutes out of the forwards on the bench, so there will be plenty of minutes to go around for Bruce Brown and Jeff Green. Both of which are solid streaming options in most leagues.
