NBA: Orlando Magic’s Jonathan Isaac suffers torn ACL

Jonathan Isaac of Orlando Magic was diagnosed with a torn ACL after his game against the Sacramento Kings.  

He suffered the tear in his left knee – it’s the same knee in which Isaac suffered a major injury back in January 2020.  Isaac was taken off the floor in a wheelchair in the fourth quarter of the game.

“My whole heart goes out to him,” Magic star Aaron Gordon said after the game. “He’s such a great guy, such a great person. I hope it’s just something that kind of shocked him. But it was sad, man. It brought tears to my eyes.”

Isaac had made headlines earlier last week when he became the first player to stand during the national anthem. He explained his decision to reporters after the game, according to Bleacher Report.

“I believe that Black Lives Matter,” he said. “A lot went into my decision, and part of it is, I thought that kneeling or wearing the Black Lives Matter T-shirt doesn’t go hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives. So I felt like, just me personally, what is that I believe is taking on a stance that, I do believe that Black lives matter, but I just felt like it was a decision that I had to make, and I didn’t feel like putting that shirt on and kneeling went hand-in-hand with supporting Black lives. I believe that for myself, my life has been supported by Gospel, Jesus Christ, and everyone is made in the image of God and that we all forge through God’s glory.

“Each and every one of us do things that we shouldn’t do and say things that we shouldn’t say. We hate and dislike things that we shouldn’t hate and dislike, and sometimes it gets to a point where we point fingers, whose evil is worse, and sometimes it comes down to whose evil is most visible. So I felt like I wanted to take a stand on, we all make mistakes, but I think that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is that there’s grace for us, and that Jesus came and died for our sins and that if we all come to an understanding of that and that God wants to have a relationship with us, that we can get kept all of the things in our world that our messed up, jacked up.

“I think when you look around, racism isn’t the only thing that plagues our society, that plagues our nation, that plagues our world, and I think coming together on that message that we want to get past not only racism but everything that plagues as us as a society, I feel like the answer to that is Gospel.”
