Jonathan Feigen

McHale going with Nick Johnson in backcourt with Harden, rather than Canaan. Canaan was stretching ankle on bench in 1st half.

Jonathan Feigen

Afflalo was whipping Nick Johnson. Beverley back in, playing with Canaan.

Jonathan Feigen

He and McHale spoke as if he's playing. MT @Dream34HR: @Jonathan Feigen any update on Canaan's status or is he still listed as questionable?

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan and Kostas Papanikolaou are both upgraded to questionable on the injury report for Wed. Garcia and Jones are still out.

Howard Chen

Canaan and Papanikolaou are being ruled questionable for tomorrow's game. Garcia, TJones still out. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets Isaiah Canaan and Kostas Papanikolaou upgraded to "questionable" to play in Denver on Wednesday. Garcia, Jones remain out.

Howard Chen

Good news, #RedNation... RT @Jonathan Feigen: Rockets guard Isaiah Canaan expected back Wednesday in Denver.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets guard Isaiah Canaan expected back Wednesday in Denver.

Jonathan Feigen

I would guess. He hoped for tonight. RT @Mdsnoc: @Jonathan Feigen who will be next player back from injury? Canaan?

Jonathan Feigen

Trevor Ariza listed as probable with a bruised right knee. The rest -- Canaan, Garcia, Jones, Papanikolaou -- out.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan, who hoped to be back Saturday, listed as out, along with Garcia, Papanikolaou and Jones.

Jonathan Feigen

Yes. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… RT @michelletos: @Jonathan Feigen Heard from announcers on TNT Canaan might if possible be back w/ Howard. True?

Jonathan Feigen

Soon. blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket… MT @timoneaux: I know no timetable and you're not the trainer but any guess on when Canaan will be back?

Jonathan Feigen

In addition to 5 Rockets out (Howard, Jones, Garcia, Papanikolaou, Canaan), Harden and Dorsey on injury report (back spasms) but will play.

Jonathan Feigen

Other than Harden and Garcia (questionable) and Howard (doubtful) and Canaan (out) and Jones (out) and Papanikolaou (out) Rockets just fine.

Jenny Dial Creech

Garcia and Howard are doubtful for Wednesday. Jones, Canaan, Papanikolaou all out on Wed.

Jonathan Feigen

Four players must be out for 2 weeks. Beverley could be back tonight. Dwight, Canaan soon RT @mysansky: @Jonathan Feigen hardship exception?

Jonathan Feigen

He would fall into category of "everyone else" injured. RT @BaskMonster: @Jonathan Feigen What about Canaan?

Jenny Dial Creech

No change on Rockets injury status- No Dwight Howard, no Terrence Jones, no Pat Beverley, no Isaiah Canaan.

Jenny Dial Creech

No change on Rockets injuries- Jones, Beverley and Canaan out tonight. Howard doubtful. Rockets host Memphis at 7.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan out of walking boot but not in practice blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…

Jonathan Feigen

No changes on Rockets injuries. Howard doubtful; Jones, Beverley and Canaan out.

Jenny Dial Creech

I’m enjoying following @Isaiah Canaan ’s tweets tonight. He isn’t missing a second of this one.

Charles F. Gardner

Rockets coach Kevin McHale said Jason Terry will start in backcourt with James Harden. Isaiah Canaan was injured last night vs. Clippers.

Jenny Dial Creech

Rockets likely without Dwight tonight, definitely without Beverley, Canaan, Jones. Could be interesting.

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan seemed overly optimistic, but who knows. He's young. Asked how long he was told he'll be out, said, "Probably just a few days.”

Jonathan Feigen

Canaan, Beverley not going to Milwaukee. Howard is traveling but listed as doubtful.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan has a boot on his left foot and is walking on crutches. He says he'll be out "probably just a few days."

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan on crutches and in a walking boot.

David Hardisty

FINAL: Clippers 102, Rockets 85. Rockets shoot just 39%, go 10-37 3P, to fall to 12-4. Canaan injury (ankle) is latest concern.

Jonathan Feigen

In case you have lost track, that makes three starters -- Howard, Jones and Beverley -- and one fill-in starter, Canaan, out for Rockets.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan has a sprained left ankle. He will not return. Left as Rockets' leading scorer with 13.

Janis Carr

Clippers up, 56-44 at half. With Houston missing 3 starters and Canaan tweaking his ankle, the Clippers better win this game decisively

David Hardisty

HALF: Clippers 56, Rockets 44. LAC shoots 51%, Rockets just 6-18 from three. That Canaan injury really hurts.

Vince Cellini

Shame about Isiah Canaan....rolling 4 @Houston Rockets before rolling his left ankle and leaving floor. 13 pt first half

David Hardisty

Canaan back up and walking, but with a limp. He makes 1-2 free throws. They foul quickly to get him out as he heads to the locker room.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets stop the clock with a foul so Canaan can limp to locker room. Getting a standing O in that corner of arena.

Dan Woike

Canaan shot his FTs, Houston intentionally fouls and Canaan limps back to the locker room.

Dan Woike

Canaan's been terrific so far (12 points) and will limp his way to the foul line.

Jonathan Feigen

As he gets up, fans start a chant of "Canaan-ball, Canaan-ball." He is limping to the free throw line, favoring left ankle.

Jonathan Feigen

Isaiah Canaan took a hard fall on a drive. Down for a long time with teammates huddled around.

Dan Woike

Isaiah Canaan goes down hard and looks hurt. Landed awkwardly.

David Hardisty

Isaiah Canaan down on the ground getting looked at after falling on a fast break layup attempt. Several Rockets huddled around him.

Jonathan Feigen

Clippers were on an 18-1 run before a Canaan corner 3. Rockets have very few offensive options left and lots of made defensive matchups.

David Hardisty

Clips up 26-24 after one. Canaan has 9 to lead Rockets. LAC defense focused on Harden (2p-3a). He played whole quarter, took just 2 shots.

David Hardisty

The story of last game was how Canaan and D-Mo stepped up big, and that's the early story tonight as well. Rockets up 10-3, 7:18 1Q.

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets have same starters -- Motiejunas, Black, Ariza, Harden and Canaan -- for a third-consecutive game for the first time this season.

Jenny Dial Creech

Isaiah Canaan went to a Chris Paul camp before his senior year of college- is excited to start against his former mentor tonight.

Jonathan Feigen

On pace, D-Mo, Canaan and a hack-a-Joey. RT @ReidLaymance: Rockets 102, Kings 89: Five thoughts from @jonathan_feigen blog.chron.com/ultimaterocket…
