Isaiah Canaan will miss the remainder of the season with a fractured left ankle.
Canaan suffered the injury in Wednesday's 102-88 win by the Suns over the Mavericks.
Team doctor Tom Carter rotated the foot and ankle back into their proper positions and said afterward that Canaan never uttered a word of pain. He was loaded onto a stretcher and wheeled off the court.
"It's hard for fans and everyone sitting right there, and teammates especially, a guy they battle with every day. It's their friend on and off the court," Suns interim coach Jay Triano said. "I used the timeout to let us say a quick prayer and get us refocused again to keep playing."
Canaan will have surgery on the ankle Thursday.
