Jonathan Isaac, a former first-round choice for the Orlando Magic, has suffered numerous injuries that have hampered his career. Isaac received more bad news Friday.
Isaac returned in January after 904 days after the 2020 NBA Bubble. Despite an unlucky accident requiring surgery, he will return to the bench after 11 games this season.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that Isaac had surgery Friday to repair a ruptured left adductor muscle, ending his season.
An MRI confirmed the injury earlier this week.
Orlando's Isaac had great potential. The NBA is devastated by his career uncertainty.
Isaac is only 25, therefore he could resurrect his NBA career. The Magic appear to have moved on from Isaac as their star.
Franz Wagner and Paolo Banchero are solid young forwards for the Magic. Isaac's injury history makes his future role unclear.
Orlando must decide on him this offseason. Isaac's $17.4 million contract can be terminated for $7.6 million. This damage increases the likelihood of a split.
