Canaan recorded 18 points (5-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, three assists, and one steal in 32 minutes during the 76ers' 106-94 loss to the Wizards on Friday. Over the last three contests, Canaan has scored 15.3 points while sinking four threes per game. Apart from that, he is only managing three rebounds, two assists, and 1.7 steals per appearance over the last week. Canaan can certainly fill it up on occasion when he gets sufficient playing time. Nevertheless, he is averaging a modest 25 minutes per game on the season, and his field goal percentage for the year is downright dismal.
Canaan scored 18 points (5-11 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and had four rebounds, four steals and two assists in a loss against the Warriors on Saturday. Canaan was lights out from the outside on Saturday, and he hopes that performance will give him more consistent playing time moving forward. Canaan has played minutes anywhere from five to 31 in the month of January, and the emergence of Ish Smith has a lot to do with that lack of stability. With the Sixers playing more competitively, expect things to remain the same, and that doesn't leave much hope for Canaan at the moment. He would see an increase in playing time if any injury occurred in the Sixers' backcourt, but for now, there's no telling what could happen.
Canaan will be available for Saturday's game against the Warriors, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. He may be still slightly hampered by an ankle ailment, but he played 23 minutes in Wednesday's game, and could see similar usage Saturday. That said, now that the Sixers are done with the experiment of occasionally using him at point guard, his value is limited to only the deepest of leagues.
Canaan (ankle) will play on Wednesday against Detroit, Bob Cooney of Daily News reports. Canaan had been considered questionable to play in Wednesday's game after leaving the game on Tuesday after just 10 minutes of action. It's now been announced that he'll play, but he shouldn't be expected to see a large portion of minutes off the bench.
Canaan (ankle) is considered questionable for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Canaan was limited to 10 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Suns before exiting with a left ankle sprain. The severity of the injury remains unknown, but considering that Canaan was also dealing with a sore wrist heading into Tuesday's contest, it might make sense for the 76ers to hold him out Wednesday.
