'Tough to see': NBA world in shock over 'absolutely awful' moment

Orlando Magic forward Jonathan Isaac was stretchered off the court on Wednesday afternoon at Capital One Arena just minutes into their matchup with the Washington Wizards after suffering a knee injury.

Isaac, after grabbing a steal near mid-court, took off and tried to finish the layup on the other end.

‘HORRIBLE LOSS’: America devastated by NBA legend's tragic death

As he made contact with Wizards star Bradley Beal in the paint, however, Isaac’s left knee appeared to give way. He grabbed it immediately in pain as he fell to the floor, where he remained for several minutes.

Isaac was eventually carted off the floor into the locker room.

The Magic later announced that Isaac suffered a hyperextended left knee. He will undergo an MRI and be evaluated on Thursday after the team returns to Orlando.

Fans and commentators were left in shock over the horrible scenes.

It’s unclear how much time he will miss, if any, ahead of their four-game homestand — which starts Friday with a matchup against the Miami Heat.

Isaac enjoying breakout year

Isaac has averaged 12.3 points and 7.1 rebounds this season for the Magic, his third in the league, and has played more than 30 minutes per game so far this year.

The 22-year-old had two points and one rebounds on Wednesday when he went down.
