Jonathan Isaac is inching towards a much anticipated return for the Orlando Magic.
“I’ve been playing [5-on-5] the last few weeks and just getting in shape,” Isaac told the Orlando Sentinel’s Khobi Price. “I’m still getting there. But in terms of body, knees and hamstrings, everything is great. I’m just not in game shape.”
Isaac hasn’t played an NBA game yet since the Magic took their acts in the 2019-2020 bubble. As such, he is happy on his individual workload.
“The only step is continuing to get in shape,” Isaac said. “We played the other day and I was gassed. Obviously, I haven’t done it in a long time. Continuing to get in shape and playing 5-on-5 four times a week. Just being able to run up and down and get in shape is what I’m focused on right now.”
