Please give SF to Isaac. Much like Tatum, another rookie, he splits his time between both forward spots. He was billed as a SF/PF coming in from college and fits the the mold of the KD type - a tall lanky shooter.

Agreed! Yahoo peeps, here's more SF evidence to consider:
1) Precedent: Isaac played nearly a third of his minutes at the 3 last season: 27% at SF; 73% at PF (https://basketballmonster.com/usagemonster.aspx). It’s worth noting that these percentages came in a season of Aaron Gordon playing only 58 games, which inflated Isaac’s time at the PF whenever Gordon was out. As you can see in the graph, Aaron Gordon played a whopping 98% of his minutes at PF, which anchors this claim to Isaac as a SF.
2) Internal confirmation: According to Magic official team reporter John Denton, Jonathan Isaac “will resemble a small forward on offense and a power forward defensively’ this season.” I’m not entirely sure what that means, but the official team reporter acknowledges Isaac as a SF...at least half the time.

3) 18-19 Starters: Josh Loyd of Locked On (among other sources) have projected that Orlando’s starters for this season will be Augustin, Fournier, Isaac, Gordon, and Vucevic. This is the lineup Steve Clifford rolled out in the Magic’s first preseason game against the Sixers (https://twitter.com/Magic_PR/status/1046875117811372033). This lineup necessitates that the slimmer Issac slide to the 3 while Gordon mans his natural position at the 4.
4) “Everyone else is doing it.” This isn’t an ironclad argument on its own, but it’s worth nothing that Jonathan Isaac is SF eligible on the fantasy basketball servers of ESPN, CBS, FleaFlicker, and Basketball Monster. FanTrax and Yahoo are the lone holdouts. You don’t want to be the last ones to join the cool kids’ table, right? :)

Jonathan Isaac needs to be SF/PF
Curtis Brown commented
He's slated to start at SF this season and started as SF in preseason. Please fix!

Could you add SF eligibility to Jonathan Isaac? I dont know why he is not listed as SF/PF from beggining cause he was playing SF in college. Now in NBA, he is playing both positions, but for some reason he is listed only as PF.
His coach is talking about him as SF/PF, even in your updates you mention that he is playing SF/PF combo:
"Isaac has played 53 minutes next to Aaron Gordon this year and 10 minutes next to Marreese Speights as a SF-PF combo next to the centers."
You also mention that Terrence Ross' injury could increase minutes for Isaac once he is back, and Ross is listed as SG/SF so it doesnt make any sence that Isaac is listed only as PF.
I know not many own Isaac, but i would like if you can add SF eligibility to him. Thanks!
