Jonathan Isaac will not make his long-awaited return to the court for the Orlando Magic this season. The talented forward tore his left ACL in the NBA bubble on August 2nd, 2020, and has not played basketball since. Hopefully, he will be able to make that long-awaited return to the court at the start of next season. He is currently on year one of a four-year extension worth 69.6 million dollars. His return was expected sometime this season, but plans have changed since then.
Orlando announced that Jonathan Isaac will miss the remainder of the 2021-22 regular season.

In his career with the Orlando Magic, Jonathan Issac has averaged 9.3 points, 5.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.1 steals, and 1.5 blocks per game. He has played three seasons with the Orlando Magic and will have three more seasons left on his extension after this season. Issac is well known as a good defender and is a talented young player on the team. With the state of the Magic right now, there is no real need to rush him back to end this season.
Just 136 games played for Jonathan Isaac in five NBA seasons. When he plays next, he’ll have missed two consecutive seasons.
Isaac is owed $52.2M through 2024-25. $17.4M per season, all fully guaranteed with no options.
That’s very fair value if he’s healthy. Big if though.

The Orlando Magic have been eliminated from NBA Playoff contention and are last in the Eastern Conference standings with a record of 18-51. A top lottery pick is likely in their future and rushing their forward back helps no one. We here at Def Pen Sports wish Jonathan Isaac the best in his continued recovery.
