Isaiah Canaan suffers left ankle fracture in first quarter against Dallas

New, comments

Canaan’s ankle went the wrong way, resulting in a similar injury to Boston’s Gordon Hayward. Canaan is out indefinitely, it seems.

NBA: Phoenix Suns at Memphis Grizzlies Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

This isn’t good, Isaiah Canaan suffered what appeared to be a broken ankle. As he was going up for a rebound late in the first quarter, Canaan’s foot went the opposite direction, resulting in an ugly scene as Phoenix’s bench jumped in horror.

The bone was also protruding out of Canaan’s skin. He was stretchered off right afterward.

With Canaan now likely out for the season, Phoenix will once again need to hit the open market or pursue a trade to find depth at point guard. Whoever they get will be the sixth player to run the point for the Suns so far.

Prayers up to Canaan for a speedy recovery.
