Isaac has already been ruled out for the Magic's matchup with the Knicks on Thursday and there appears to be a good chance he's also held out Saturday against the 76ers. That said, he's finally slated to get on the court in the G-League, which indicates he's on the back end of his recovery. He'll practice with the Orlando affiliate Thursday and then play on a minutes restriction in their game Friday. Following that, the Magic will likely then reevaluate Isaac and see how the ankle responds to the increase in activity. Look for another update on Issac's status over the weekend.
Isaac (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Knicks, John Denton of OrlandoMagic.com reports.
Isaac has played in just three games since mid-December and continues to work his way back from a sore right ankle. Coach Frank Vogel already indicated prior to the All-Star break that he'd like to get Isaac some run in the G-League before being cleared for the big club, which could happen as early as this upcoming weekend. Look for additional updates once Isaac is able to get a few more G-League games under his belt.
Magic head coach Frank Vogel said Wednesday that Isaac (ankle) could report to the G League's Lakeland Magic for further rehabilitation before returning to the court for the NBA team, John Denton of the Magic's official site reports.
Isaac has been sidelined since Dec. 26 with right ankle soreness and the Magic have yet to issue a formal timeline for the rookie's return. Given that he resumed practicing in light capacity earlier this month, Isaac looks to at least be week-to-week at this point in his recovery, so an assignment to the G League could come some time during or shortly after the All-Star break in advance of a second-half return. Isaac had been a key member of the Magic's rotation prior to being shut down, but he's more of a dynasty asset than something worth stashing in single-season formats. He's averaging 5.3 points (on 40.5 percent shooting from the field), 3.7 rebounds, 1.0 block and 0.7 steals in 18.9 minutes per game over 15 appearances on the campaign.
Isaac (ankle) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
This officially rules Isaac out until after the All-Star break, which was expected for the rookie seeing as though he hasn't played since late December. Isaac will be able to take next week-plus to put in some extra rehab work as necessary on his right ankle, and the Magic should have an update on his status at some point next week.
Isaac (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Bulls.
Isaac returned to the court for practice earlier this month, but with the rookie having not played in a game since Dec. 26 after enduring a setback with his sore right ankle, the Magic aren't eager to rush him back into action. Don't expect Isaac to suit up until at some point after the All-Star break.
