Isaac totaled seven points (3-5 FG, 1-2 3Pt), five rebounds, five blocks, and one assist in 16 minutes during Saturday's 130-117 victory over the Lakers. Isaac played 16 minutes off the bench Saturday as he continues to work his way back from an ankle injury. Despite the minutes' restriction, Isaac still managed to record five blocked shots. Playing time is the key for Isaac and that will only come if he is able to stay healthy, which thus far has been a major issue. He is a borderline standard league option but is more of a stash at this stage.
Isaac will have a minutes restriction Saturday against the Lakers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. Isaac made his return to action Wednesday against Philadelphia and played 16 minutes off the bench after missing the previous six games. He'll remain limited Saturday, and while it's unclear how many minutes he'll be cleared for, Isaac is best avoided in DFS contests until that restriction is lifted.
Isaac played 16 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Sixers. Making his return from a six-game absence due to an ankle injury, Isaac was restricted to 16 minutes of action, but his workload figures to increase over the next few games. Isaac finished with four points (1-3 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one block.
Though Isaac (ankle) will be available to play Wednesday against the 76ers, coach Steve Clifford said a minutes restriction will be in place for the forward, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. Isaac is likely to work in a reserve role in his return from a six-game absence, per Denton. Clifford didn't offer a specific number for Isaac's projected minutes, but it makes sense for the Magic to ease the 21-year-old back in the fold after he missed about two weeks with the sprained right ankle and was nagged by lower-body issues throughout his rookie campaign. Wesley Iwundu had been filling in as the starting small forward while Isaac was sidelined, but it was Terrence Ross who mainly took advantage of the rangy forward's absence, averaging 17.0 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.0 three-pointers and 2.2 assists in 27.7 minutes per contest off the bench during the six-game stretch. Both Ross and Iwundu should see their values take a hit once Isaac is free of restrictions, which could come as soon as the Magic's subsequent game Saturday against the Lakers.
Isaac (ankle) has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game against the 76ers, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports. Listed as questionable heading into the day after missing the Magic's past six games with a sprained right ankle, Isaac will be available to suit up after making it through the morning shootaround without incident. It's not known if Isaac will have any restrictions with his minutes or immediately recapture his starting role at forward, so the 21-year-old doesn't make for the most appealing option in DFS contests coming off the injury. Assuming he makes it through Wednesday's contest without any setbacks during his time on the court, Isaac should settle back into a nightly 25-to-30-minute role.
