East Notes: Magic, Jonathan Isaac, Raptors, Hornets


  • Forward Jonathan Isaac will play for the Lakeland Magic of the G League on Wednesday as he works his way to an NBA return, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Isaac has not played for the Magic since suffering a torn ACL in the Disney bubble in 2020.
  • Isaac could also play for Lakeland in two weekend games, though that is not yet known, per Khobi Price of the Orlando Sentinel.


  • Forward Otto Porter Jr. is out for the season following surgery on his left foot, the team revealed. Porter has appeared in just eight games with the Raptors after signing as a free agent. He won a title with the Warriors last season.
  • The Raptors could be one of the more active teams ahead of the trade deadline, as we relayed here. Guard/forward Gary Trent Jr. appears to be their most likely trade candidate.
