Isaac (knee) said Wednesday that he has resumed on-court activities, but he remains without a concrete timetable for a return to game action, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. It's been almost a full year since Isaac tore his ACL and meniscus in his left knee. The injury isn't the first significant one for Isaac, who has appeared in only 136 of the Magic's 309 regular-season games since he was drafted sixth overall in 2017. However, the Magic were still comfortable enough to ink him to an $80 million extension late last year, and he'll presumably be one of the faces of the franchise moving forward.
Isaac (knee) signed a four-year, $80 million extension with the Magic on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. The 23-year-old has already been ruled out for the 2020-21 campaign after undergoing ACL surgery in early August, but Orlando still opted to lock him up ahead of Monday's rookie extension deadline. Isaac played excellent defense and averaged 11.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.3 blocks over 28.8 minutes in 34 games last season, but he's played only 136 games over his first three seasons in the league.
Isaac (knee) will remain out for the entirety of the 2020-21 season, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports. Magic president Jeff Weltman confirmed Monday that the team does not anticipate Isaac playing at all next season after the forward suffered another significant knee injury during seeding play. Isaac will, of course, face a lengthy recovery, but the team ruling him out for an entire forthcoming season is a major decision, especially given the uncertainty surrounding the league's future schedule. Through his first three years in the league, Isaac -- one of the NBA's best defenders, when healthy -- has played 27, 75 and 34 games, respectively.
Isaac (knee) underwent successful surgery Friday to repair the torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports. Isaac was diagnosed with a torn ACL following Sunday's win over the Kings, but it turns out he also had a torn meniscus. Isaac will now focus on recovery and rehab with the hopes of returning sometime next spring or summer. It remains to be seen when the 2020-21 NBA season will take place, so it's unclear if Isaac will be able to return during the campaign. While he's sidelined, at least for this season, Terrence Ross and Wes Iwundu should see increased roles.
Isaac (knee) was diagnosed with a torn left ACL after undergoing an MRI following Sunday's 132-116 win over the Kings, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Playing in his second game in seven months after previously suffering a severe sprain of the same knee, Isaac will now miss the remainder of the 2019-20 season as a result of the devastating setback. While the NBA has yet to unveil its schedule for the 2020-21 season, his rehab will more than likely keep him out for the bulk of the upcoming campaign, as well. Prior to the initial injury, Isaac had emerged as one of the most improved players in the league, particularly on the defensive end. He'll wrap up his third season in the NBA with averages of 2.3 blocks and 1.6 steals in 28.8 minutes per game.
