The 2019-20 season was a rollercoaster for Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac. He was in the middle of a breakout year before a hypextended left knee sidelined him until the 2020 bubble. Then in his second game back he suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in that same knee, which kept him out for the entirety of the 2020-21 campaign.

Isaac continues to rehab from that injury, and he offered a positive update on Wednesday.

The Magic forward said that he's "feeling good" at this stage of his rehab. Though fans are eager to hear about when he could return to the court, Isaac didn't offer much on that subject.

“I really can’t give you that. But I’m feeling good. I’ve been able to really kind of get moving as of late. I’ve been able to get some work done with Coach on the court, so I feel good. I don’t have a specific timeline on anything, but I’m OK. I’m getting there.”

Still, Isaac's update is encouraging. He's doing some on-court work already, which is a good step in his recovery process. He can focus on getting to 100% without have to worry about hitting a specific return date right now.

The Florida State product averaged 11.9 points, 6.8 rebounds, 2.3 blocks and 1.6 steals per contest over the first 34 games of the 2019-20 season. Getting the forward back to that level would be huge for a rebuilding Magic team in need of star-caliber talent.
