Being sent to the D-League isn’t ever the ideal situation for a draft pick, but former Murray State star Isaiah Cannan has been making the most of the opportunity. Now he’s about to be rewarded.

The second-round pick by the Houston Rockets has been called up to the main stage thanks not only to his play, but a bevy of injuries to the team’s guards. Patrick Beverley has suffered a hand fracture, Jeremy Lin (back spasms) and James Harden (ankle sprain) are listed as day-to-day.

Canaan has been lighting it up with the Rio Grande Vipers, averaging 21.7 points, 9.7 assists, and 4.3 rebounds a game. Canaan may make his debut tonight against the Dallas Mavericks, with Beverley out for 4-6 weeks. Lin has said he will start tonight, but could play fewer minutes.
