Just minutes into the fourth quarter, Isaac planted on his left leg as he went to drive to the hoop. Almost instantly, Isaac reached for his left knee in pain and fell to the floor, where he remained for several minutes, clearly in distress.

Isaac had to be helped off the court in a wheelchair.

The severity of his injury isn’t yet known, and Magic coach Steve Clifford didn’t want to speculate. Isaac isn’t expected to have to leave the NBA’s bubble at Walt Disney World at this point, however.
