Jonathan Isaac on injury recovery: I'm getting there

Posed that question Wednesday by The Athletic, Isaac smiled broadly and gently chuckled as he answered — not because the question isn’t important, but because Magic officials hate to reveal the timetables of players who are working their way back from injuries. “I can’t give you that,” Isaac said, still smiling, tilting his head as if to apologize for the secrecy. “I really can’t give you that. But I’m feeling good. I’ve been able to really kind of get moving as of late. I’ve been able to get some work done with Coach on the court, so I feel good. I don’t have a specific timeline on anything, but I’m OK. I’m getting there.”
Isaac sounds as if he has no doubts that he will overcome his injury woes. “The most pleasing part (of my rehab work) is just growing, just when you can see yourself take a setback and keep a positive outlook,” Isaac said. “I give God all the glory for that. He’s kept me exactly where I need to be. Just to see myself inch forward each and every day, getting better and getting better, that’s the most satisfying part, knowing that I’m going to be back. It’s just a matter of time. “It’s double-edged: feeling good that you’re making progress,” he added. “But at the same time, progress doesn’t always happen at the speed that you want it to.”
