Jonathan Issac sustained a knee injury during the game against the Sacramento Kings. The young Orlando Magic forward was escorted out of the court in a wheelchair.

Isaac’s knee buckled, after driving into the lane and attempting to split two Kings’ defenders. Orlando’s athletic forward has had several lower-body injuries during his first three seasons in the NBA.

Isaac nearly missed eight months due to a devastating knee injury in 2019, before returning to action this season.

He was having a great year as a defensive specialist for the Orlando Magic, averaging 12 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2 blocks per contest in 33 appearances.
