Isaac contributed nine points (3-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist, and one block in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 106-93 loss to the Jazz. Isaac continues to occupy the starting small forward spot thanks to his stellar defensive ability and effort. However, the sophomore remains a work in progress on the offensive end, as evidenced by the fact that he was coming off consecutive two-point performances. Given his struggles as a scorer thus far this season, Isaac's fantasy appeal is limited to deep leagues.
Isaac produced 14 points (4-13 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and two blocks across 29 minutes in Friday's 116-87 win over the Raptors. While Isaac continues to grow as a forward in the League, he has been inefficient shooting the ball, shooting just 35.3 percent over his last seven games. As a bigger presence on the court, Isaac needs to be converting more of his opportunities to make a bigger impact, but his athleticism and confidence from behind the arc showcase his potential and what he could become.
Isaac finished with 10 points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, one assist, three steals and three blocks across 26 minutes in the Magic's 97-91 win over the Bulls on Thursday in Mexico City. Isaac drew another start at small forward and responded with a better effort than Monday against the Mavericks. The 2017 sixth overall pick had provided just four points in that contest, but he managed to work his way back to double digits in the scoring column Thursday despite a poorer shooting effort. A perfect showing from the charity stripe was key to propping up Isaac's final line, and his trio both steals and blocks was an excellent supplement. The 21-year-old naturally remains very much a work in progress, but he certainly has the talent to ramp up production if he continues seeing starter-level minutes.
Isaac had just four points, four rebounds, one steal, and one block in 27 minutes during Monday's 101-76 loss to the Mavericks. Isaac moved into the starting lineup replacing Evan Fournier who was out for personal reasons. The promotion did little to increase Isaac's production, scoring just four points in 27 minutes. He is still racking up some handy defensive numbers but the breakout is yet to come. There is certainly some upside there but owners are going to have to show patience.
Isaac will get the start at small forward for Monday's tilt with the Mavericks, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports. With Evan Fournier (personal) out for Monday's game, Jonathon Simmons will slide up to play shooting guard, opening the door for Isaac to start. Across 20 games this year, including nine starts, Isaac is averaging 8.5 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 23.1 minutes.
