Jonathan Isaac's season-ending knee injury in the 2019-2020 "Bubble" Games, has led to the granting of a Disabled Player Exception (DPE) in the amount of $3,681,283 million to the Magic by the NBA. (Shams Charania on Twitter)
The loss of Isaac for the upcoming 2020-2021 season is a tough blow to the Magic, as his production provided more versatility and depth to the rotation. Even with this DPE in place, the task of finding someone who can account for the loss of his shooting efficiency, defensive prowess, and all-around athleticism can prove to be difficult. With Isaac out, look for Aaron Gordon and a combination of Al-Farouq Aminu and Gary Clark to man the four in a seemingly underwhelming front-court.
