Orlando Magic Power forward Jonathan Isaac has been ruled out of the remaining season after he sustained a torn ACL on Monday.
It was during the seed game against Sacramento Kings when Isaac fell down as he after sustaining an injury on his left knee, as reported by Adrian Wojnarowski of the ESPN.

Unfortunately, Isaac finished the game with just four points and only three rebounds in his side’s win 132-116 points. Earlier, Isaac stood during the national anthem while his teammates and staff management knelt down. He later clarified that it was his personal decision, but he still stands for the ‘Black Lives Matters’ campaign.
“Absolutely I believe that Black lives matter,” Isaac said in the dugout.
“A lot went into my decision…kneeling or wearing a ‘Black Lives Matter’ t-shirt don’t go hand in hand in supporting Black lives. I do believe that Black lives matter, I just felt like it was a decision I had to make, and I didn’t feel like putting that shirt on and kneeling went hand in hand with supporting Black lives.”
Isaac is just 22 years old and playing in his third season of the NBA. He is currently averaging 11.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in over 17.30 minutes on the floor. It is still unclear when he will return to the floor but as of now, he has been ruled out indefinitely.
While Orlando Magic is scheduled to play against Indiana Pacers at the Visa Athletic Center today.
