Why Are The Magic Shutting Down Jonathan Isaac For The Rest Of The Season?

Jonathan Isaac has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the season, which really shouldn't be a surprise. Most Magic fans would like to see him activated, just to see him play basketball again but his time will come and that sounds like next season.

When Isaac was interviewed by the media, he talked about the timeline running out for any chance of an activation, now that it is this late in the season. While Isaac has some frustration, he understands that everyone's injury rehabilitation timeline is different. Him and the training staff seem to be working on strengthening, preventative measures that will help him stay healthy once he returns. JI talked about strengthening his upper body and working on his shot in the meantime.

In the podcast clip below, Brandon Kravitz and I offer perspectives on why JI has been shutdown for the rest of the season.
