Goran Dragic scored just six points with two boards, three assists, one steal, one block and three turnovers during a 99-86 loss in Atlanta on Friday.
Miami turned the ball over 19 times and couldn't get into an offensive rhythm tonight. With Dwyane Wade (knee) not at 100 percent, Dragic could have more offensive responsibility headed his way. His fantasy owners should have more confidence in him going forward. Mar 27 - 11:52 PM

Goran Dragic and Dwyane Wade each scored 12 points during Sunday's road loss in Oklahoma City, shooting a combined 10-of-25 from the field.

Dragic made one 3-pointer with five rebounds and three assists, but he didn't have any steals despite Russell Westbrook committing six turnovers. Dragic said before the game that he's dealing with nagging injuries and has felt "slow" for weeks. You can't tell by watching him play lately, however, as he came in with five-game averages of 18.6 points (55.1 percent FGs, 78.9 percent FTs), 0.4 threes, 4.0 boards, 6.6 assists and 2.0 steals.
Mar 22 - 6:02 PM

Goran Dragic had 20 points, 11 assists, two steals and a 3-pointer on 9-of-16 shooting in Wednesday's win.

The move to Miami has worked out well for Dragic, although a back injury slowed him down for a minute. Since returning from that, he's averaging 18.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 7.0 assists, two steals is shooting 53 percent over his last four games.
Mar 18 - 11:11 PM

Goran Dragic scored 20 points with five rebounds, nine assists and two steals on 7-of-13 from the field in 40 minutes against the Cavs on Monday.

He is still dealing with a back issue, but playing 40 minutes tonight suggests he's fine. Since returning from his back injury, Dragic averaged 18.3 points, 3.0 boards, 5.7 assists, 2.0 steals and 0.3 treys on 51.3 percent from the field in his last three. Besides the lack of treys, his fantasy owners should be pleased with this output and could expect a little more, too.

Goran Dragic has been laboring through a bruised tailbone, but he said on Sunday that it "feels good," and has improved since Friday.

We don't expect this to cause Dragic to miss any time, so owners can feel confident deploying him for Monday's game vs. Cleveland. He's averaging 16.4 points, 4.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game on an elite 51.8 percent shooting from the field since making the move to Miami, and is obviously a must-start option every time he's in uniform.
Mar 15 - 3:51 PM

Goran Dragic again reiterated his desire to sign a multi-year deal with the Heat when he becomes an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

"That’s my wish," Goran said when asked if he'd like to remain in Miami. "Right now I’m focused on doing as much as possible this season and make the playoffs, but of course this first 10-15 days here has been a great feeling for me. Unbelievable." Dragic has said on multiple occasions that if Miami offers him a suitable contract this offseason he'd be happy to stay, and we’ll be watching this story closely.
Mar 12 - 5:19 PM

Goran Dragic returned to the lineup on Wednesday with 17 points, one rebound, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Nets.

He said he wasn't 100 percent tonight and wanted to play through the injury. "We are warriors, everyone has the same goal," Dragic said. "We can not allow ourselves to miss a lot of games." He may have to play through his back injury going forward and hopefully the Heat are a little better at updating their guys heading into games.
Mar 11 - 11:43 PM

Goran Dragic and Chris Andersen will start against the Nets on Wednesday.

He said he was "for sure" going to play today and the Heat just had to plant a seed of doubt for the pre-game press conference and then not update their players' statuses until 25 minutes before tip. At least this is an improvement from Monday. Start Dragic in all leagues while Mario Chalmers and Tyler Johnson might not play as much.
Mar 11 - 7:03 PM

Goran Dragic (back) has the intention to play on Wednesday against the Nets.

He said he was "for sure" going to play today, but once again Miami has opened the door of him possibly missing the game. We still think Dragic will give it a go based on his earlier comments, but his fantasy owners should at least be aware there is some form of risk in starting him at this point.
Mar 11 - 5:53 PM

Updating a previous report, Goran Dragic (back) will play vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

The Heat's medical staff has obviously been busy recently, but it's a huge relief that Dragic will be able to give it a go tonight, especially with Dwyane Wade questionable with an illness. Dragic should still be in all active lineups despite not being 100 percent, and his return will dampen the value of Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers (unless Wade sits). Check back after the game to see how his back holds up.
Mar 11 - 11:27 AM

Goran Dragic (back) will be a game-time decision vs. the Nets on Wednesday.

Dragic was able to do more at practice on Tuesday and he said that there's a 75 percent chance that he would play vs. the Nets, but his owners will have to check back prior to tip-off just to be safe. If Dragic can't go, Mario Chalmers and Tyler Johnson would both be in line for additional minutes.
Mar 11 - 10:58 AM

Heat head coach Erik Spoelstra said Goran Dragic (back) is feeling better and was able to do more during Tuesday's practice.

Dragic added that there's a 75 percent chance he's able to go on Wednesday when Heat take on the Nets, and we'll continue to monitor this situation closely. If he's unable to play, Mario Chalmers would likely get the start with Tyler Johnson also getting a minutes and value boost.
Mar 10 - 1:57 PM

Goran Dragic (back) will not play against the Celtics on Monday.

Mario Chalmers will take Dragic's place in the first unit. Dragic said he has a tailbone issue, which has caused players to miss over a week in the past. Besides Chalmers, expect to see more of Tyler Johnson, who is coming off a 24-point game on Saturday.
Mar 9 - 7:21 PM

Goran Dragic (back) will be a game-time decision on Monday against the Celtics.

If Dragic can't go, Shabazz Napier, Tyler Johnson and Mario Chalmers will all see a boost in minutes. Dragic owners will have to check back for an update on his status.

Goran Dragic has already embraced playing alongside Dwyane Wade.

"It’s so easy to play with this kind of player. [And] Wade is such a nice person. He embraced me," Dragic said. Since arriving in Miami, Dragic is averaging 16.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.5 steals and 0.9 triples on a solid 52.3 percent shooting.
