According to The Athletic's Shams Charania, Orlando Magic forwards Jonathan Isaac is expected to return Monday against the Boston Celtics (7 ET, NBA League Pass). Isaac has missed the past two and a half years while recovering from a torn ACL. 



The No. 6 pick in the 2017 draught has appeared in three games for Orlando's G League affiliate Lakeland Magic, averaging 15.8 points in 17.4 minutes per game. 



On August 2, 2020, Isaac tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing in the NBA's development league. He missed the all of the 2020-21, 2021-22, and first half of current season. Ten months ago, he also underwent surgery on his right hamstring. 


Isaac participated in 134 regular-season games in his first three seasons, including 75 games in 2018-19, Orlando's only winning season in the previous 10 years. 



His initial left knee injury came in a game versus Washington on January 1, 2020. He returned to the bubble for two games before hurting his ACL. 


Isaac, age 25, is the highest-paid player on the Magic. Two more seasons remain on his four-year contract, which pays him $17.4 million annually. 


Terrence Ross, Markelle Fultz, and Mo Bamba are the only remaining Magic players who participated in Isaac's final game.
