Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac is one step closer, and a day away, from his return to the NBA.

During the 2020 NBA COVID bubble postseason, Isaac was open about standing for the national anthem at a time when Black Lives Matter produced their narrative of kneeling during the anthem.

Isaac was also forthright over not taking the COVID vaccine, contrary to the sweep regulations by the NBA to enforce the jab on their players.

In his 136 appearances for the Magic from 2017 to 2020, Isaac averaged 9.3 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.1 assists.
