The Suns had just won for the first time in six games, beating the Dallas Mavericks 102-88 on Wednesday at Talking Stick Resort Arena, but the mood in the Phoenix locker room was muted. Instead of celebrating, the Suns were lamenting the gruesome left ankle injury suffered by teammate Isaiah Canaan late in the first quarter. As Canaan was going up for a driving layup, he collided with Dallas’ Wesley Matthews and his ankle bore the brunt of his fall.
Storyline: Isaiah Canaan Injury
Canaan, who was signed on Dec. 13, had been a solid pickup for Phoenix, averaging 8.9 points, 3.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds in 22.9 minutes per game. He had supplanted Tyler Ulis as the backup to Booker since Booker was made the starting point guard. “It hurts, man,” Booker said. “Isaiah is a guy I’ve known from high school. He’s from Mississippi, also. He comes in here, fights every day, comes in here and earns a spot. To take a tough break like this, it hurts. It hurt me.”
