      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Scores 16 points Sunday

      Canaan contributed 16 points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, three assists, and two steals in 35 minutes during the 76ers' 92-84 loss versus the Grizzlies on Sunday. Canaan turned the ball over four times in his sixth start of the season. He appears to have overtaken rookie T.J. McConnell as the starting point guard, but coach Brett Brown has also shown a willingness to pair the two guards together at times. As long as Canaan is seeing so many minutes he is worth a look in most leagues, but it's hard to trust a 76ers point guard long-term, especially with Kendall Marshall and Tony Wroten set to return eventually.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Expected to start Sunday

      Canaan is expected to draw another start Sunday versus the Grizzlies, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports. This should mark Canaan's second straight appearance in the starting lineup and sixth of the season. In Friday's loss to the Rockets, he had one of the better games of his season, finishing with 23 points (9-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-3 FT), two rebounds and two assists over 32 minutes. Canaan has now shot seven or more three-pointers in four straight games, so expect him to come out firing again Sunday.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Scores 23 in Friday's loss

      Canaan scored 23 points (9-17 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 1-3 FT) while adding two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 32 minutes during Friday's loss to the Rockets. Over the last four games, two of them as a starter, Canaan is averaging 17.8 points, 3.5 threes, 2.5 boards and 2.3 assists in 30.5 minutes. Those aren't great numbers, but the Sixers are desperate for a spark and Canaan's three-point shooting should allow him to continue seeing big minutes as the team tried to break their record-setting losing streak.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Starts Wednesday

      Canaan will start at shooting guard against the Celtics on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Canaan has moved in and out of the starting five this season, but he'll be playing at shooting guard Wednesday while T.J. McConnell continues to spearhead Philadelphia's offense.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Heats up off bench Monday

      Canaan netted 14 points and added three rebounds and assists against Minnesota on Monday. Canaan has been primarily a backup point guard for Philadelphia this season, but is still averaging 25 minutes per game with three starts as well. He's starting to prove himself in the NBA as the scorer he was in college and is averaging 10.5 points per game so far this year. At the start of the year, Canaan was expected to battle with Phil Pressey for minutes, but he appears to have taken the backup point guard spot for himself.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Lays bricks again Monday

      Canaan scored three points (1-9 FG, 1-8 3Pt, 0-1 FT) and collected one rebound, one assist, and one steal over 25 minutes in Monday's 92-86 loss to the Mavericks. Canaan has submitted a few decent games off the bench since he was removed from the starting lineup earlier this month in the favor of the ascendant T.J. McConnell, but he's still far to inconsistent of a shooter to enjoy sustained success. He's now shot 3-for-24 over his last three games, dropping his proficiency from the field to 31.3 percent for the season. With starting shooting guard Nik Stauskas also in a deep slump, the Sixers could begin to experiment with other players in the backcourt in order to generate some more scoring production.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Scores game-high 23 off the bench Saturday

      Canaan scored 23 points (8-16 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 1-1 FT) with three rebounds, three steals and a block in 27 minutes off the bench during Saturday's loss to the Magic. That's 40 points and nine threes in the last two games for Canaan, who's proving to be the one real weapon the Sixers have on their second unit.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Will play more SG

      Canaan will play more at shooting guard going forward, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Canaan lost his starting spot to TJ McConnell on Wednesday, and the 76ers appear ready to move forth with McConnell at point guard. Phil Pressey, who was signed Wednesday, will be McConnell's primary backup in the short-term, per coach Brett Brown, while Canaan will shift to a backup shooting guard role behind Nik Stauskas. While Canaan profiles, physically, as a point guard, he's a shoot-first player with a quick trigger from three, so the shooting guard spot may ultimately play closer to his strong suits.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Moves to bench

      Canaan will come off the bench Monday against Milwaukee, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports. Canaan struggled against Cleveland on Monday, finishing with just seven points on 2-of-8 shooting while recording only one assist. He'll be replaced by rookie T.J. McConnell at point guard after McConnell put up six points, 12 assists and seven boards off the bench Monday.

      76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Struggles Monday and outshined by backup

      Canaan turned in another disappointing performance in Monday's loss to the Cavaliers, finishing with only seven points (2-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, and an assist over his 31 minutes. When Canaan's shot isn't falling, he generally struggles to make an impact, as he's not much of a defender and struggles as a distributor. That weakness in Canaan's game has been readily apparent through the Sixers' first three contests, as the starting point guard is averaging 11.7 points on 29 percent shooting from the field and has posted five assists against seven turnovers. Though Canaan's minutes have remained relatively stable throughout the season, that could soon change after backup point guard T.J. McConnell submitted an excellent performance off the bench Monday, scoring six points while dishing out 12 assists in just 23 minutes. Canaan's starting job was already expected to be threatened later this season when Kendall Marshall and Tony Wroten return from ACL injuries, but McConnell's early success could result in an even earlier bench assignment for Canaan. Continue to monitor the minutes and production of Canaan and McConnell over the next handful of games.
