Jonathan Isaac only managed 11 points in Friday’s overtime win over the Grizzlies but added two treys, six rebounds, four assists, a steal, a block and a turnover in 28 minutes.
Isaac has really cooled off after his excellent run last month but is still putting up enough cash counters to be owned in most leagues. Aaron Gordon had a dud with five points, four assists and three rebounds in 39 minutes.

Jonathan Isaac went 4-for-11 from the field and finished Wednesday's easy win over the Pelicans with eight points, 10 rebounds, four dimes and four blocks.
This was a nice bounce-back game from Isaac, who is coming off a scoreless outing vs. the Hawks on Monday. Overall, the sophomore has managed to find his groove post-All-star break and has been a solid two-way player. Better late than never, as they say.

Jonathan Isaac scored 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting while adding two rebounds, two assists, and a 3-pointer against the Cavs on Thursday.
The good news is that he's involved in the offense when he's playing, but this is the second consecutive game for Isaac without any defensive stats. He's been too good on that end of the floor to panic and he has a juicy matchup against the Hawks on Sunday to make up forthe lost ground.

Jonathan Isaac drained four 3-pointers Tuesday vs. the Sixers, with an otherwise pedestrian line including 16 points, five boards, an assist and a block on 6-of-12 field goals.
Isaac seems to be settling in with serviceable points and boards as his baseline. Fortunately, he's been providing 1.8 threes and 2.0 blocks over the past month to keep him in the top-50.

Jonathan Isaac was up to his usual ways against the Pacers, scoring 12 points on 5-of-8 shooting, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 28 minutes.
Oddly enough, he hasn't registered a steal in the past three games so it's nice to see him swiping one tonight. Nonetheless, he's been registering top-30 value in the past month and continues to reward owners who didn't lose patience with him.

Jonathan Isaac cooled off on Thursday against the Warriors, scoring 12 points on 6-of-8 shooting with four rebounds and a block.
Although the scoring and efficiency have increased, we consider a line like tonight cooling off due to the fact that he didn't get much done with the cash counters. Isaac has had a great post-ASB thus far so hang onto him.

Jonathan Isaac kept it rolling Tuesday in a road loss to the Knicks with three blocks and four threes in 32 minutes.
It was quite a 2018-19 Brook Lopez kind of line for Isaac, as he added 16 points and six rebounds. Those that had patience with him or capitalized on others' lack of patience have been rewarded with the 33rd/24th ranked player in 8/9-category leagues over the past month.

Jonathan Isaac picked up two fouls in three minutes on Sunday but managed to stay on the floor and ended up with 16 points, six rebounds, two blocks and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes.
Isaac didn't pick up a foul for the rest of the game, and good on Steve Clifford for keeping him on the floor. The second-year forward is starting to turn some heads with his great run of late and should be in all lineups through the end of the season. It took Isaac a while to get going, but this is the version of him we were all over during draft season.

Jonathan Isaac had a game to forget in Friday's loss to the Bulls, scoring only four points (on 1-of-6 from the field) to go with a trey, three rebounds and two steals.
The money counters salvaged a bad night and despite this dud, Isaac has still been a top-35 play in 9-cat over his last five games. He played 31 minutes in this one so hopefully he can get back on track his next time out.
February 22, 2019, 9:45 pmAaron Gordon - F - Orlando Magic
Aaron Gordon hit 1-of-4 from the line and had four turnovers which marred the 17 points, five boards, four assists and three blocks he had in a loss to the Bulls on Friday.
As usual, it’s the poor efficiency stopping Gordon from being a consistent mid-round payer in 9-cat and it’s not looking like this season will be the one he corrects it.

Jonathan Isaac had a nice line on Thursday, with 16 points, six boards and two defensive counters as the Magic won 127-89 over the Hornets.
Isaac has been trending straight up over the last month or two and is actually a top-20 player over his last seven games. Maybe he's becoming what we hoped for Aaron Gordon. Bummer for the Gordon owners, but these two seem to ebb and flow against each other right now.

Jonathan Isaac scored a career-high 20 points on 7-of-18 shooting in a big 118-88 win Tuesday over the Pelicans, adding seven boards, three blocks and two 3-pointers while going 4-for-4 from the line in 29 minutes.
Isaac had tied his previous high of 18 points by the end of the first half tonight, and if the game had been closer, we could've seen something really special. He's on what appears to be his breakout tear.

Jonathan Isaac put up 10 cash counters on Sunday with three triples, two steals and five blocks in a 124-108 blowout win over the Hawks.
He had a total of 17 points on 6-of-12 shooting with three rebounds. Isaac has been inside top-30 value over the past two weeks due to his insane defensive stats that many predicted would happen all year long. Those who hung on to Isaac when he was in an early season slump should be thrilled with the results over the past month and hopefully until the end of the season.

Jonathan Isaac scored 17 points on 7-of-12 shooting (including three treys) with six rebounds and two blocks over 31 minutes in Saturday's road win over the Bucks.
The Magic box score was quiet and trended toward players' season averages or expected outputs. Evan Fournier played below the cut line with seven points on 3-of-13 shooting, five rebounds, five assists and one steal, and that's pretty much all there was to report. Isaac has been a top 70-90 player (9/8 cat) over the last month with a steadily upward trajectory.

Jonathan Isaac filled up the stat sheet again on Thursday against the Wolves with nine points, six rebounds, two assists, a 3-pointer, two steals and three blocks.
It was a long time coming, but we're finally here. For those strong willed believers who held on, congratulations as we're looking at a huge finish from Isaac especially with the Magic sending off Jonathon Simmons to the Sixers. Over his last five games he's averaging 28.8 minutes, 11.4 points, 8.6 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 2.2 blocks. He's starting to figure things out and shouldn't be on any waiver wires.
