Jonathan Isaac‘s long journey back to the court takes a positive turn, as he will return to the court on Monday night for the Magic.
Isaac has spent the past two seasons recovering from a torn ACL in his left knee and a subsequent hamstring injury he suffered during the rehab process.
The Magic have taken a cautious approach to get Isaac ready for NBA basketball again. The 25-year-old played three games in the G League for the Lakeland Magic earlier in the month as part of the ramping-up process.
Isaac has yet to play for Jamahl Mosley, who took over as Orlando’s head coach after the 2020-21 season. The forward previously indicated that he’s looking forward to playing under his new coach.
Isaac is expected to be on a minute restriction on Monday night with Mosley telling the media that the forward should be 8-10 minutes of action.
