Canaan went up for a layup in the closing seconds of the opening quarter and landed awkwardly on his left leg.
His foot was pointing in the wrong direction as he tumbled to the court, and there were groans from the crowd and looks of shock from his Phoenix teammates as trainers rushed to him.
The backup point guard was taken off the court on a stretcher. The Suns updated his status soon after.
