Magic coach Frank Vogel said after practice that Jonathan Isaac is on track to make his return Friday vs. the Pistons.
The Magic have some figuring out to do with their rotation as they have a point guard shortage and forward surplus. They did run some no-point guard lineups on Saturday that were successful and would be an effective way to welcome Isaac back into the rotation. With Aaron Gordon starting and Mario Hezonja to play “a lot of minutes.” according to Vogel, Isaac may be worked back slowly. Vogel also mentioned that Isaac may be the team’s best perimeter defender and he is excited to see what he can bring. Isaac will probably retain a minute restriction to start off but he is worth a look for his upside and defensive ability.
