Magic Forward To Play First Game In Over Two Years

For the first time in over two-and-a-half years, Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac will step foot on an NBA court. Per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Isaac will suit up for Orlando's G-League affiliate, the Lakeland Magic, on Wednesday.

Woj adds that Isaac may play a couple of games in the G-League as he prepares for an eventual NBA return in the near future. 

The last time we saw the 25-year-old on an NBA floor was on August 20, 2020 during the NBA bubble in Orlando. Isaac suffered a torn ACL in his left knee and has since been rehabbing his way back to the league. 

Prior to his unfortunate injury, Isaac was one of the most promising defenders in the NBA. He possesses great length, athleticism, and defensive instincts, making him a force on the defensive side of the floor.

Isaac owns career averages of 9.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.1 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game.

Should his return process go smoothly, he will rejoin an Orlando team that has a plethora of young talent that could be ready to take the next step this season with 2022 No. 1 overall pick Paolo Banchero leading the way.
