  • Canaan will pick up the start at point guard for Wednesday's regular-season opener against the Mavericks, Duane Rankin of the Arizona Republic reports. Canaan mentioned earlier this week that he expected to open the year as the starting point guard, which has now been confirmed. The 27-year-old had a couple of strong showings in the preseason and will look to build on that as he starts alongside the likes of Devin Booker, Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson and Deandre Ayton. The Suns recently added guard Jamal Crawford and Booker is also expected to do plenty of ball-handling, which could cut into Canaan's usage despite working with top unit. Still, he'll be someone to keep an eye over the first few games to determine whether or not he'll have utility in fantasy leagues.

  • Suns' Isaiah Canaan: May start at point guard
    By RotoWire Staff

    Canaan said he expects to start at point guard Wednesday against Dallas, Gina Mizell of The Athletic reports. If Canaan does indeed draw the start, Devin Booker would take over at shooting guard and Josh Jackson would fall into a reserve role behind Trevor Ariza at small forward. "As of right now, that's what it's looking like. I'm really looking forward to that and just going out there and trying to do whatever I can to help the team win." stated Canaan. The Suns likely won't release their starting five until after shootaround Wednesday.

  • Canaan registered nine points (3-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 16 minutes in the Suns' 116-83 preseason loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday. Canaan got an opportunity to run with the first unit as the Suns continue to audition candidates for the starting point guard job to open the regular season. The six-year veteran has proven more productive this preseason than Shaquille Harrison, who shapes up as his primary competition for the job. Head coach Igor Kokoskov is likely to continue giving both players plenty of opportunity for what remains of the exhibition slate before making a final decision, but they each should see their fair share of minutes come the regular season irrespective of their depth chart slotting.

  • Suns' Isaiah Canaan: Picks up start Wednesday
    By RotoWire Staff

    Canaan will start at point guard Wednesday against the Trail Blazers. Canaan will step into the starting lineup for the first time this preseason, with Shaquille Harrison retreating to the bench as a result. Through two preseason games, the point guard is averaging nine points, four assists, 1.5 rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes.

  • Canaan (thumb) turned in 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-5 3Pt), three assists, one rebound and one steal across 32 minutes during the Suns' 115-93 preseason loss to the Trail Blazers on Friday. Although Elie Okobo drew the start at the point, it was Canaan who comfortably outpaced both him and fellow second-round pick De'Anthony Melton in playing time. Canaan was solid over 19 games (one start) for the Suns at the tail end of last season, averaging 9.1 points, 4.0 assists and 2.3 rebounds across 22.0 minutes. However, his shooting has been career-long issue (36.9 field-goal percentage over five seasons), so it remains to be seen if he can demonstrate enough consistency during the preseason to potentially vault into the starting job.
