More injury news for Denver: Vlatko Cancar has a fracture in his right foot. Imaging after last night’s loss in Dallas where Cancar got hurt and left the game confirmed the injury. Cancar’s next steps (surgery, etc.) are still being discussed, but he’ll be sidelined for a while. – 5:42 PM

Chris Dempsey @chrisadempsey
Vlatko Cancar with a right foot injury will not return to this game – 10:41 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Vlatko Cancar is out with a right foot injury. – 10:40 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Nuggets down potentially two more rotation players. Austin Rivers is questionable to return with a right thumb sprain. Vlatko Cancar just had to be carried off the floor after injuring his right foot. Don’t expect to see him again tonight. – 10:21 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
No mask for Vlatko Cancar. – 8:54 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Bones Hyland should be available for the Nuggets tonight in Dallas as @Michael Singer reported. Austin Rivers (sprained right thumb) and Vlatko Cancar (nasal fracture) are also expected to be available. Zeke Nnaji, Jeff Green and Monte Morris are still in health and safety protocols. – 3:53 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Vlatko Cancar (nasal contusion) questionable to return. – 10:05 PM

Gordon Gross @GMoneyNuggs
Vlatko Cancar takes an MMA-level elbow to the face, blood gushes out of his nose.
Refs: was that a foul? Don’t think so. Play on… wait, maybe stop play so they can mop some blood up, then play on. – 10:01 PM

Vlatko Cancar just converted one of the best euro’s I’ve seen from a Nuggets player and;
It’s fitting – 8:46 PM

Michael Singer @msinger
Austin Rivers, Aaron Gordon and Vlatko Cancar are all available tonight, team announces.
That’s 12 healthy players available. #Nuggets are now deep. – 7:03 PM

Harrison Wind @HarrisonWind
Popeye Jones says Aaron Gordon should be available tonight. Vlatko Cancar will be able to play short 2-3 minute stints. Sounds like Austin Rivers is a game-time decision. Jones also sent Bol Bol a text today and told him to be ready: “There may be a Bol Bol sighting tonight.” – 6:43 PM

TJ McBride @TJMcBrideNBA
Popeye Jones said that Aaron Gordon should be back tonight and that Vlatko Cancar can play short stints. Jones also texted Bol to be ready for minutes. – 6:38 PM
