Late in the first quarter with the Suns already up big, Isaiah Canaan was fouled on a drive to the rim. He landed awkwardly, with his foot folding under his body; bones don’t really bend that way. ESPN did not replay the injury, with good reason.

Hopefully Canaan makes a quick and full recovery from what the broadcast later said was a left ankle fracture.
