Jonathan Isaac agrees to four-year, $80 million extension with Magic

Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports Jonathan Isaac and the Orland Magic have agreed to a four-year, $80 million contract extension.

Fantasy Impact

The 23-year-old is expected to miss the entire 2020-21 season after tearing his ACL inside the bubble over the summer. Isaac had been playing well before going down too, which only made the injury a tougher pill for Magic fans to swallow. He was the team's first-round pick (sixth overall) back in 2017.

Jonathan Isaac’s injury lands the Magic a disabled player exception

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.

Fantasy Impact

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.

Jonathan Isaac (knee) has been off crutches for 'several weeks'

Magic F Jonathan Isaac (knee) is sporting a knee brace and has been off crutches for several weeks now.

Fantasy Impact

Isaac underwent ACL surgery in the beginning of August and will be out for the entire 2020-21 season. "My mind is still there in terms of how I was playing. My body just has to catch up now with this recent injury," Isaac said. He has reportedly been optimistic about his recovery.

Jonathan Isaac (knee) will remain out through the 2020-21 NBA season

Magic President Jeff Weltman said on Jonathan Isaac’s status for the 2020-21 NBA season, “we will not have [him] next season.”

Fantasy Impact

With the 2020-21 season set to begin in December of this year, this puts to rest any lingering hope that Isaac could return in the middle of next season after suffering a torn ACL and meniscus a few weeks ago. Tough break for a player that has shown so much promise over the last year prior to knee issues. He’ll rehab in hopes of being a full-go ahead of the 2021-22 season.

Jonathan Isaac (knee) undergoes successful surgery

Jonathan Isaac underwent successful surgery to repair the torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee.

Fantasy Impact

Isaac suffered a torn ACL in Sunday’s win against the Kings. He will focus on rehab and hopes return in time for the 2020-21 campaign. Isaac averaged 11.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 2.3 blocks across 34 games this season. Terrance Ross should see an expanded role with Isaac out.
