Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac is set to play in his team's final scrimmage against the Denver Nuggets on Monday, president of basketball operations Jeff Weltman told The Athletic's Josh Robbins.

Isaac last appeared in an NBA game Jan. 1 when he suffered a severely sprained left knee.

"Jonathan has been working extremely hard with our performance staff for a long time, and he has been in overdrive since we got back into our practice facility in mid-May," Weltman said. "As always, we will take a very cautious approach, and his playing time will be placed under a very limited minute restriction as he gets reacclimated to the NBA game."

The 22-year-old's status for the Magic's eight seeding games has yet to be determined.

Isaac showcased significant improvement in his third professional season, especially on the defensive end, averaging 2.4 blocks and 1.6 steals across 32 contests. The Florida State product also averaged 12 points and 6.9 rebounds.

Orlando (30-35) opens its seeding schedule against the Brooklyn Nets on July 31.
