2/1/2023 Jonathan Isaac, ORL, F
Isaac (left knee injury management) has been added to the Magic's injury report and won't play in Wednesday's game against Philadelphia.

Analysis: The Magic continue to be careful with Isaac after he missed more than two years with a serious knee injury before returning on Jan. 23. The former first-round pick has yet to play more than 10 minutes in four games since coming back.
2/1/2023 Aaron Gordon, DEN, F
Gordon (left ankle sprain) is questionable for Thursday against the Warriors.

Analysis: Gordon played 36 minutes in Tuesday's win over the Pelicans, finishing with 15 points, six rebounds and six assists. If he doesn't play, Jeff Green will likely slide into the starting lineup.
2/1/2023 Victor Oladipo, MIA, G-F
Oladipo (ankle) is doubtful for Thursday against the Knicks.

Analysis: Oladipo could use a day off given how much he's been struggling recently. In his last three games, he's totaled 16 points, 13 assists and 11 rebounds while shooting 25%. If he can't play, Max Strus and Gabe Vincent could play a bigger role, though Vincent is also considered questionable due to an ankle injury.
2/1/2023 LeBron James, LAL, F
James (left ankle soreness) is questionable for Thursday at Indiana.

Analysis: James, who sat out Monday's loss to the Nets due to the sore ankle, played 43 minutes in the Lakers' win over the Knicks the following night. He finished with 28 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds in that one and is now just 88 points shy of tying Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's NBA career scoring record. The ankle is bothering him, but it's not showing with his production and the team will continue to monitor his health.
2/1/2023 Jusuf Nurkic, POR, C
Nurkic lasted just two minutes before exiting due to left calf soreness in the Trail Blazers' game against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

Analysis: This is certainly concern seeing as Nurkic had just played Monday after sitting out Saturday's loss to the Raptors due to the sore calf. He initially sustained the injury last Wednesday against the Jazz. Drew Eubanks got the start at center on Saturday in place of Nurkic and will likely pick up more minutes should he miss more time.
