    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: To miss all of 2020-21 season

    Jonathan Isaac (knee) will remain out for the entirety of the 2020-21 season, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.Orlando 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.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Undergoes successful surgery

    Jonathan 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.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: MRI confirms torn left ACL

    Jonathan 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.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Leaves court in wheelchair

    Jonathan Isaac departed Sunday's game against the Kings in a wheelchair after appearing to re-injure his left knee, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.Isaac had already missed significant time this season after originally injuring his left knee back in January, and his return for the restart was somewhat of a surprise. The Florida State product appeared healthy during scrimmages, and he was coming off of a 16-point, six-rebound effort in Friday's win over Brooklyn. The Orlando Magic have not yet clarified the extent of the injury, but given how it looked -- as well as Isaac's history -- it's difficult to imagine the forward taking the court again in 2020-21.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Facing 16-minute restriction

    Orlando coach Steve Clifford said Jonathan Isaac will come off the bench and face a roughly 16-minute restriction Sunday against the Kings, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.Though Isaac dazzled in 16 minutes (16 points on 6-for-7 shooting from the field, six rebounds and one steal) during Friday's win over the Nets, the Orlando Magic aren't eager to increase his workload yet fresh off a seven-month absence due to a severe knee sprain. James Ennis will continue to start at forward alongside Aaron Gordon, but if he avoids any setbacks, Isaac should replace Ennis on the top unit before the Magic's seeding games conclude.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Plays excellent in return

    Jonathan Isaac posted 16 points (6-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one steal in 16 minutes during Friday's 128-118 win over the Nets.Isaac played his first regular-season game since Jan. 1 on Friday, and he looked excellent in limited action. He missed just one shot all game and hit two three-pointers, which he had only done six times prior this season. Look for him to see a little more run when the Orlando Magic face the Kings on Sunday.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: To see limited action

    Jonathan Isaac (knee) will play off the bench Friday against the Nets, but his minutes will be limited, Nick Friedell of ESPN reports.The Orlando Magic continue to be cautious with Isaac, who is working his way back from the knee injury that had kept him out since Jan. 1. He looked great in the team's final scrimmage earlier in the week, but coach Steve Clifford told the media that Isaac's workload "won't be significant" in his return to real game action.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Should be available Friday

    Coach Steve Clifford said he believes Jonathan Isaac (knee) is going to play Friday against the Nets, but he continues to evaluate him day to day, Josh Robbins of The Athletic reports.The 22-year-old played in Monday's scrimmage against the Nuggets and saw only seven minutes off the bench, but he was incredibly active with 13 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist. However, Clifford doesn't want to commit to Isaac being available ahead of time as he returns from the left knee sprain. The young forward is expected to play Friday -- and likely will have a minutes restriction if he does -- but he should officially be considered questionable.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: Thrives off bench in return

    Jonathan Isaac (knee) exploded for 13 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds, two steals, and one assist in just seven minutes off the bench during Monday's 114-110 win over the Nuggets.This was Isaac's first game since New Year's Day but, considering how good he looked, he is pumped and ready to go for the season opener Friday against the Nets. He is expected to have a regular role in the rotation, but he might come off the bench given the fact he hasn't played an official game in almost seven months.

    Magic's Jonathan Isaac: To have minutes limit

    Jonathan Isaac's (knee) minutes will be limited in Monday's scrimmage against Denver, Roy Parry of the Orlando Sentinel reports.Considering it will be Isaac's first real game action since New Year's Day, this shouldn't come as a much of a surprise. The rangy forward was held out of the previous two scrimmages while working his way back from a knee injury that shelved him for the final 31 games before the shutdown. If all goes well Monday, Isaac will likely be on track to rejoin the Orlando Magic's rotation for the finish to the regular season. That would be a big boost for the team, as Isaac was in the midst of a breakout campaign before suffering the injury. Orlando faces Brooklyn on Friday in the first of eight seeding games.
