    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Scores 18 points in 32 minutes Friday

    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.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Hits five three-pointers in Saturday loss

    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.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Available to play Saturday

    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.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Will play in Wednesday's game

    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.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Questionable for Wednesday

    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.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Doesn't return after injuring ankle

    Canaan (ankle) didn't return to the floor after departing Tuesday's 113-103 win over the Suns. He finished with seven points (3-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt) and a steal over 10 minutes off the bench. Canaan wasn't expected to play Tuesday after dealing with bilateral wrist soreness, but ended up taking the court, only to leave early with an unrelated injury. Nik Stauskas ended up making the start at shooting guard with JaKarr Sampson (illness) unavailable, and he'd likely stand to receive an even greater share of minutes if Canaan is unable to give it a go Wednesday against the Pistons.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Questionable to return Tuesday

    Canaan is questionable to return to Tuesday's game against the Suns, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. Canaan was originally questionable to play in Tuesday's game with a wrist injury, and after being cleared to play he was forced to leave the game with an ankle sprain and is questionable to return from that. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but more information should be available soon.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Questionable with sore wrist

    Canaan is considered questionable to play Tuesday night against Phoenix due to soreness in his wrist, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. This is the first we're hearing of the injury, though it could explain why Canaan was limited to only 15 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Celtics after playing at least 24 minutes in each of the previous three contests. Regardless, Canaan's status could ultimately end up as a game-time call, as it's likely he'll test out the wrist during warmups before making a final decision. Be sure to check back for a final update prior to the 7:00 PM ET tip.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Scores 15 points in win

    Canaan tallied 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two steals, one rebound, and one assist across 28 minutes in Wednesday's 96-87 victory over the Magic. After being exiled from the rotation earlier in January, Canaan has returned with a vengeance over the last three contests. He's recorded at least 14 points in each game while shooting 53.8 percent from the field and 57.1 percent from downtown. Canaan has been averaging 27.7 minutes during that stretch, and could even see his role grow in Saturday's game against the Celtics if starting shooting guard JaKarr Sampson, who exited in the first quarter Wednesday with a hip pointer, is ruled out for the weekend.

    76ers' Isaiah Canaan: Scores 16 points off bench

    Canaan provided 16 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, and one assist across 24 minutes in Monday's double-overtime loss to the Knicks. Canaan was dropped from the starting lineup in favor of Robert Covington, but thanks to the continued absence of Nik Stauskas (shoulder), Canaan still saw ample run at the two-guard spot. The third-year player has now collected 30 points on 9-for-18 shooting over the last two games, including a 5-of-10 mark from three-point range. Canaan's recent success could allow him to remain in the rotation even once Stauskas returns.
