When I asked him about the chances of Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu playing when the season resumes, Weltman answered, “They have not played basketball in a long, long time. So it’s more than just saying, ‘Your knee is strengthened.’ It’s a matter of reconditioning and making sure that we’re not putting any of our players at risk for further injuries. So we’ll see as we go along how we get there. But I’m not prepared to apply any timeline or anything like that at this point. They’ve got a lot of work ahead of them.”

“Not a whole lot of news there,” Weltman said when asked about the possibility of Isaac or Aminu returning. “As always, we’re going to wait and see how they respond to rehab. They’re both working very hard. There’s a difference of being healthy and then being safely healthy. It will have been a long, long time since those guys played and you know organizationally that we’re never going to put our guys in a position where they’re exposed to any sort of risk of injury. So that being said, we’ll just continue to see how they progress.”
While the disruption certainly came at a bad time for the Magic, Augustin feels the delay could allow them to get injured players such as Evan Fournier, Jonathan Isaac and Al-Farouq Aminu back when-and-if the playoffs resume in the coming months. “I don’t care who we play; I just want to get back playing, being in the playoffs again and it will be exciting regardless,’’ Augustin said when asked by a Southwest Airlines member about his preference of a playoff opponent in the playoffs. “It sucks that we won’t be able to have fans (in attendance), if we are able to come back, but I think it will be a good change for people at home to have sports on TV again.”
