Isaiah Canaan scored nine points with one 3-pointer against the Cavs on Friday night.
He is looking at a nice increase in playing time against the Mavs on Saturday. Dwyane Wade (rest) did not travel and will miss his second game to open up plenty of wing minutes. The last time Wade was out, Canaan thrived off the bench with 17 points in 31 minutes. He's a streaming or DFS punt option. Dec 3 - 1:13 AM

Date:

Isaiah Canaan (neck) is probable to play Tuesday vs. Portland.

Canaan has been hit-or-miss this season with his minutes fluctuating between the mid-20s and lower-teens depending on the matchup. He's averaging just 6.2 points, 1.6 assists and 1.1 triples per game, so it's pretty clear that his fantasy value will be negligible in most leagues with Rajon Rondo is healthy.
Nov 14 - 4:12 PM

Isaiah Canaan missed his only shot and played just nine minutes, failing to score on Thursday.

He had scored eight and 10 points in his previous two games, but Rajon Rondo was feeling it tonight, and the Bulls simply didn't need Canaan. As long as Rondo's healthy, he's afterthought in fantasy.
Nov 10 - 11:39 PM

Isaiah Canaan scored four points in 14 minutes against the Knicks on Friday with one rebound and one assist.

For basically the past two years, Canaan has played straight shooting guard. However, he got a look at the one tonight. Until he can string together consistent minutes, this is a situation to ignore in most leagues.
Nov 5 - 1:42 AM

Isaiah Canaan scored 15 points vs. the Nets on Monday, shooting 5-of-7 from the field

Michael Carter-Williams left the game with a sprained left knee and is likely going to miss some time, so Canaan made the most of his opportunity. He added six assists, three rebounds, one steal and three treys in 22 minutes, and he could be the backup PG moving forward. For now, he's only worth a look in deeper formats and it's worth noting that the Bulls won by 30 points.
Oct 31 - 10:11 PM

Isaiah Canaan has agreed to a two-year, $2.2 million deal with the Chicago Bulls.

Canaan wasn't very efficient in Philly last season, but he did play better once he was moved to shooting guard. He posted averages of 11.0 points, 2.3 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.7 steals and 2.3 3-pointers in 25.5 minutes per game, but he will be lucky to get minutes in the teens in Chicago.
Jul 12 - 8:27 PM

Isaiah Canaan will become a free agent after the 76ers declined to make him a qualifying offer.

Canaan's season ended with a torn labrum in his left shoulder, and his inefficiency might have prompted the Sixers to decline the offer. The third-year guard hasn't shot better than 37.7 percent in his career, and his ability to lead an offense is questionable with a 1.5 assist-to-turnover ratio. No matter where he ends up next season, he's unlikely to be more than a 3-point specialist.
Jun 29 - 10:17 PM

Isaiah Canaan (torn labrum) is out for the season.

It's a really tough blow for Canaan, who surprisingly is second in total points for the team this season. He should be on track for most of his offseason plan after a couple months off. Hollis Thompson, Robert Covington and Nik Stauskas will get more run.
Apr 8 - 5:27 PM

Isaiah Canaan started and hit 6-of-12 shots and four 3-pointers for 16 points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in Tuesday's win over the Pelicans.

The Sixers must not have gotten the tank memo and Canaan is officially hot, as he had 24 points and five 3-pointers in his previous game. Even with Hollis Thompson back from an illness, Canaan played well and deserves a fantasy look the rest of the way.
Apr 5 - 9:21 PM

Isaiah Canaan scored 24 points in a start with four rebounds, two assists and five 3-pointers against the Pacers on Saturday.

He clearly benefited from Hollis Thompson (illness) being a late scratch. Canaan's move to shooting guard has really helped him as one of the team's top scorers. In fact, Canaan would lead the team in total points scored this season if he can average 24.4 points per game in the final five -- that probably won't happen, but still totally 76ers. He's worth a look if you need scoring and treys.
Apr 2 - 10:26 PM

The 76ers will start Ish Smith, Isaiah Canaan, Hollis Thompson, Jerami Grant and Carl Landry against the Pacers on Saturday.

It's the same lineup as Friday. Canaan and Smith were really bad on Friday, so they'll look to bounce back. Expect a similar rotation except for Elton Brand playing over 20 minutes.
Apr 2 - 7:06 PM

Isaiah Canaan made 1-of-9 from the field for four points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 24 minutes against the Hornets.

He could be in jeopardy of losing playing time with the 76ers getting Jerami Grant back. Canaan is really inconsistent, so he's not as valuable as guys like Grant, Robert Covington or even Hollis Thompson.
Apr 1 - 9:30 PM

Isaiah Canaan scored 11 points with two rebounds, three assists and three 3-pointers against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

He was sitting at around 30 minutes while Covington was out, so his playing time held steady. Canaan is really only good for points and treys, so he's more of a low-upside specialist. His usage is also going to drop with Covington back, though.
Mar 23 - 11:56 PM

Isaiah Canaan scored 15 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 34 minutes on Thursday.

He's the new trigger man for the 76ers with Robert Covington (concussion) out. Canaan plays just shooting guard, but he's had three good games in a row. His value will fall off soon, but he should be able to keep it going for the next week or so. He's worth owning in most leagues for those concerned with short-term value.
Mar 17 - 9:50 PM

Isaiah Canaan hit 5-of-10 shots (all 3-pointers) and 5-of-5 free throws for 20 points, two rebounds and one assist.

He doesn't do much besides score but he had 22 in his last game and is averaging 15.4 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 3.4 3-pointers over his last five. If you need threes, Canaan can help.
