A scary scene took the collective wind out of Talking Stick Resort Arena on Wednesday night. Late in the first quarter of the Phoenix Suns’ matchup with the Dallas Mavericks, Suns guard Isaiah Canaan’s drive to the basket was matched with an awkward fall to the floor, resulting in a gruesome lower-leg injury.
As he was driving to the rim with just seconds left in the first quarter, Canaan made contact in the air with Mavericks forward Wesley Matthews.
Canaan fell hard and awkwardly to the ground, with his left ankle taking the impact.
As he was laying on the court moments later, the ankle was turned almost completely around.
Matthews immediately covered his hands in shock.
Several Suns players looked away from the court in horror as Canaan was being helped.
He was wheeled off the court shortly thereafter and the Suns later announced Canaan fractured his left ankle.
