Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play in the Suns' season finale on Wednesday.
Dragic has been playing on an injured ankle for the past few games and he was a DNP candidate the moment the Suns were eliminated from the playoffs on Monday. He'll finish the season with numerous career-highs, averaging 20.3 points on 50.5 percent shooting, 1.6 threes, 3.2 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.4 steals. Apr 15 - 4:22 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) played in the Suns' 97-91 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday, scoring 14 points on 6-of-14 shooting (no threes) with six rebounds, four assists and five steals in 37 minutes.

We're going to put Dragic on the injury report after the Suns were knocked out of the playoffs with the loss, as he's on the shortlist of NBA players most deserving of an early rest. Eric Bledsoe added 13 points, three rebounds, five assists, two steals and a three, and the loss closes the book on one of the league's better stories of the season. Everybody thought the Suns were going to be tank, but instead they improved the franchise at every level. Now it's on Robert Sarver not to mess it up.

Coach Jeff Hornacek said on Monday that Goran Dragic's ankle is still sore but "he's going to play no matter how it feels at this point."

He definitely wasn't at his best in Saturday's tough loss and he won't be 100 percent in Monday's enormous game against the Grizzlies in Phoenix. The Suns will need to win tonight, win on Wednesday and need the Grizzlies to lose on Wednesday vs. the Mavericks. If the Suns don't get it done tonight, there's a good chance Dragic sits out on Wednesday.

Goran Dragic played through an ankle injury on Saturday, but wasn't great, hitting just 6-of-18 shots and zero 3-pointers for 13 points, five rebounds, four assists and a steal.

He was having his way against Jose Calderon, but It was the Eric Bledsoe show tonight, as he had 29 points in a tough loss. Look for Dragic to continue to try to play through his injury, as the Suns are in a dogfight with Memphis for the final playoff spot.
Apr 12 - 11:53 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) will start vs. the Mavericks on Saturday.

He has been receiving a ton of treatment to get ready for this game and he's certainly not 100 percent. Dragic was getting ice on his ankle during warmups, so he might not be able to play his normal playing time. This game is huge for the Suns and coach Jeff Hornacek will basically have a full arsenal at his disposal. Gerald Green should still get plenty of run on the bench.
Apr 12 - 7:33 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) is expected to return vs. the Mavericks on Saturday, according to beat writer Paul Coro.

Owners should check back for official confirmation after the Suns warm up in Dallas, but it appears Dragic will be ready to play following a one-game absence. If he does suit up, Gerald Green will shift back to a smaller role off the bench.
Apr 12 - 12:03 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) will not play against the Spurs on Friday.

As far as the playoff picture goes, this is easily the biggest news of the day. Dragic has played like an All-Star all season and the Suns really need this game, which just got even tougher with Tony Parker returning. Gerald Green will get the start and have a major opportunity to post a big line next to Eric Bledsoe.
Apr 11 - 7:21 PM

Goran Dragic has been downgraded to doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Spurs due to a sprained left ankle.

Ouch. The Suns have huge game tonight for their playoff chances and they look like they'll be without their best player. Dragic said his ankle is getting better and mentioned he will play if his ankle allows it. He has sprained his left ankle three times this season and has been getting treatment twice per day while also sleeping with an electronic stimulation machine on Thursday night. If all this effort still keeps him out, Gerald Green will start and become a must-play fantasy option.
Apr 11 - 3:40 PM

Goran Dragic is questionable to play on Friday due to a sprained left ankle.

"I think [Dragic] will want to play," said coach Jeff Hornacek. "It'll be a question with him, 'Do you think you can go and go hard or is it going to aggravate it more?'" The Suns play the Spurs on Friday before a crucial matchup with the Mavericks on Saturday, a back-to-back set which may determine the Suns' playoff fate, and Dragic's injury comes at a very inopportune time. He will not participate in Friday's shootaround and if he can't start Gerald Green will take over at SG with Eric Bledsoe at PG.
Apr 11 - 12:20 AM

Goran Dragic's shooting slump ended on Sunday with 26 points on 11-of-19 shooting in a dazzling performance vs. the Thunder.

Phoenix came into the game just half a game ahead of the Grizzlies for the West's final playoff spot and they fought with playoff intensity for the victory. Dragic drained two 3-pointers and handed out five assists as he shook the 32.6 percent shooting that had plagued him for the past three games.
Apr 7 - 12:15 AM

Goran Dragic shot just 2-of-11 from the field for 15 points during a tough 112-108 loss to the Clippers on Wednesday, adding one board, eight assists and four turnovers in 42 minutes.

He did most of his damage at the line, making 11-of-12 from there, but didn't add any steals, blocks or triples. Dragic has been on a tear since the break, averaging 20.9 points, 5.4 dimes, 1.2 steals and 2.0 triples on 52.3 percent from the field. He'll bounce back against the Blazers on Friday.
Apr 3 - 1:40 AM

Goran Dragic received five stitches over his left eye in the second quarter of Friday's 112-88 win over the Knicks and returned to start the second half, finishing with 32 points, two boards, four assists, two steals and five 3-pointers.

He got stitched up during halftime and came out about two minutes after most of the team for layup lines. Dragic's five triples tonight were tied for the third most of his career and he got open looks all night while also destroying the Knicks in transition. Fantasy owners should not be expecting any drop off with Eric Bledsoe (16 points, seven boards, six assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers) back. They're an elite backcourt.
Mar 29 - 5:29 AM

Goran Dragic received five stitches above his left eye after being elbowed in the face by Tyson Chandler on Friday, but he will return for the second half.

He exited with a towel over his left eye to staunch the bleeding, but came out of the locker room with a grin after getting a set of stitches during halftime. Dragic finished the first half with 20 points in 17 minutes of action.
Mar 28 - 11:10 PM

Goran Dragic scored a team-high 25 points vs. the Wizards on Wednesday with seven boards, six assists, one block and three 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He shot 11-of-17 from the field, so the 3-pointers gave him a fantastic 79.4 effective field goal percentage tonight. There was barely any adjustment period for Dragic with Eric Bledsoe back, averaging 20.0 points, 3.0 boards, 5.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 2.0 triples on 56.9 percent from the field over his last five. He's a fantasy stud.

Goran Dragic (abdomen) may skip the World Cup of Basketball this summer.

Dragic still hasn't made a decision, but is feeling conflicted about whether or not to play for his home country of Slovenia this summer. "Sometimes, it is too many games," Dragic said. "I still have to sit down with my national team and talk with them about making a decision if I'm going to play or not. I'm thinking more toward not playing and trying to get my body some rest to be fresher for the next season." This is great news for owners who own Dragic in a dynasty league as it sounds like his priority is to come back fresh for the 2014-15 season and build off of a stellar 2013-14 campaign during which he established himself as a Top 10 fantasy basketball point guard.
