It has been two and a half years since Jonathan Isaac last played in an NBA game, but the 25-year-old forward is finally set to make a return.

The news was announced by his pastor. “He’ll be returning to the court tomorrow completely healed, completely healed, completely healed,” the pastor said.

A couple of weeks ago the Magic assigned to their G League affiliate the Lakeland Magic to ramp up his preparation for the NBA.

During the 2019-2020 season Isaac averaged 11.9 points 6.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 29.2 minutes per game before tearing his left ACL.

Last year he released a book Why I Stand about how religion helped him overcome his struggles. During the Orlando bubble he made headlines for refusing to do a marxist gesture of kneeling for the national anthem of the United States.
