More unfortunate news in what has been such a shaky year for the Magic big man, Jonathan Isaac. The 22 year-old has suffered a torn ACL in his left knee, according to Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN.
Isaac, who suffered a knee injury in January and missed 31 games, was not expected to play again this season, but the NBA restart in Orlando seemed like a good place to make his comeback.

Orlando's Forward was having a breakout season prior to his left knee injury on back in January, being a legitimate All-NBA defensive team candidate. Jonathan was averaging at least 2 blocks and 1.5 steals per game.
Also on the offensive end he showed signs of improvement so as hustle, recording 12 points and 6.9 rebounds per contest.
This injury may put in jeopardy his availability for the 2020-21 season. Still, such unfortunate news for Isaac and the franchise, maybe if he would've waited until next season and not rushed back his way to the court, probably would've avoided this incident.
