NBA players send massive support for Magic’s Jonathan Isaac after ACL injury
The Orlando Magic received a terrible bit of news shortly after their 132-116 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday, with an MRI confirming that highly-promising forward Jonathan Isaac has suffered an ACL tear that will keep him on the sidelines for the rest of the season.
Once again exhibiting the brotherhood within the NBA, players have began sending their show of support for Isaac via their messages of encouragement on Twitter:
Speedy recovery to @JJudahIsaac 🙏🏼🙏🏼

This was a terrible blow for the Magic, but even more so for Jonathan Isaac, whose season has just gone from bad to worse. The 6-foot-11 forward was playing on a strict minutes limit, as he was slowly being eased back into the rotation by the Magic coaching staff. Isaac spent most of the pre-hiatus 2019-20 campaign on the sidelines, recovering from a severe sprain on his left knee. In the most unfortunate of incidents, that same knee gave in on Sunday on a non-contact play. It has yet to be determined if Isaac will require surgery and how long his new recovery timetable will be.
Isaac was quite impressive in his limited run for the Magic over its first two games in the bubble. On Sunday, he logged four points, three rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 15 minutes of play prior to being forced out of the playing court because of this unfortunate injury.
Prayers up for Isaac.
