Robbins: Magic indicate Jonathan Isaac (knee) is 'unlikely to play'
According to President of Basketball Operations Jeff Weltman, Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac is still rehabbing his knee injury.
After Isaac reported to Orlando's bubble on Tuesday, the Magic seem hesitant their young forward can return from his knee injury initially suffered in January. "He's at the stage where he can do a little light court stuff, but that's about it." said Weltman when asked about Isaac. Look for the Magic to ultimately be patient with Isaac's recovery and hold him out if needed.
With Isaac off the court this season per Rotogrinders' Court IQ, Nikola Vucevic has emerged as Orlando's top offensive threat. In a 1256 minute sample size, the Magic center is averaging 1.29 FanDuel points per minute and a usage rate of 26.8%.
