Phoenix Suns guard Isaiah Canaan suffered an ugly-looking injury late in the first quarter of the Suns' game vs. the visiting Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night. 

Canaan's leg became twisted during a fall in the final seconds of the first quarter. His teammates were visibly upset by the sight of the injury, and he was eventually taken off the court on a stretcher. 

The Suns reported Canaan suffered a left ankle fracture.

Warning: Graphic video.

The 26-year-old Canaan is playing in his fifth NBA season. He has averaged 9.4 points in 18 games with the Suns, who signed him to a contract in December.

The Mavericks wished Canaan well on Twitter immediately following his injury.
