Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac Tears ACL During NBA Restart; Will Miss The Rest Of The Season

 Written by @kristenshylin_

ESPN reported that Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac tore the ACL in his left knee during the final quarter of Sunday’s game.

Issac was carried off the court in a wheelchair, marking his second serious injury throughout the season. On Jan.1, Isaac hyperextended his left knee at Washington, causing him to miss 31 games.

The NBA player’s recent injury comes two days after receiving national attention for being the only player in the NBA bubble restart to not kneel during the anthem. In addition to standing during the anthem, Issac did not wear a Black Lives Matter t-shirt.

In a press conference after Friday night’s game, Issac said he did not participate in the demonstration for religious reasons.

In a game against the Sacramento Kings, Issac fell to the floor in unbearable pain holding his knee after hopping between two defenders.

Issac issued a statement on Twitter Monday, thanking everyone for their prayers and concerns.

Despite the new obstacle, Issac said he is encouraged.

“MY COMEBACK WILL BE GREATER THAN MY SETBACK!!!! I STILL STAND IN JESUS NAME!!!!”
