My body is gonna be huge throughout my entire career. Staying healthy. Working on joints and things like that. Just getting stronger, being able to hold my own more is gonna be important.

Magic officials hope Isaac, the sixth overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, will remain injury-free over the season’s final week and a half and will be able to play in all eight of the team’s remaining games. “I feel good and I’m ready to play,” Isaac said after the Magic completed their gameday shootaround. I’m very excited. Obviously, I love playing with my teammates. I hate just watching from the sideline.”
Because he’s missed so much time, the final eight games are important for him. “Honestly, it’s just about game-to-game experience,” coach Frank Vogel said. “There’s not one thing I want to see him improve on. I want to see him continue to play within himself offensively while staying aggressive. And then defensively, keep doing what he’s doing with his instincts. Every time he’s out there, he’s guarding a different action. He’s got to figure out how to negotiate certain screens or a cross-screen or a guy’s individual moves. He’s just got to grow in all those areas.”
