Goran Dragic (back) is still being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Suns.
Dragic really wants to play, but he's clearly hurting even though he did report some improvement. He did not participate in shootaround, an indication that The Dragon could be headed for a dreaded game-time call. If he's unable to suit up, Mario Chalmers would start and see all of the minutes he can handle with Shabazz Napier as his backup. Mar 2 - 11:33 AM

According to head coach Erik Spoelstra, Goran Dragic is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Suns after he dealt with back spasms during Saturday's game vs. the Hawks.

"He got hit in the back and that's why he was in the locker room," Spoelstra said. "He probably shouldn't have played in the second half. He just played through it. I kept on asking him if he was OK and he said he was... He gutted it out." Dragic will likely do everything in his power to be ready in time to face his former team, and we should be able to provide another update after the Heat's shootaround on Monday morning. If Dragic can't play, Mario Chalmers will be the primary beneficiary, while Shabazz Napier would likely see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Mar 1 - 10:37 PM

Goran Dragic went scoreless in the first half against the Hawks on Saturday, finishing with six points, three rebounds, six assists, two steals and three turnovers.

It's been a bumpy ride for Dragic, but his averages still look fine. In his five games with the Heat, he averaged 13.8 points, 3.0 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 treys on 49.1 percent from the field. He should get even better and have a chance to be a third- or fourth-round guy.

Goran Dragic scored 20 points on 9-of-13 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and one steal in the Heat's loss to the Pelicans on Friday.

Dragic has been a top-70 player so far in Miami and that's likely to rise as he gets comfortable and his role increases.
Feb 28 - 3:33 AM

Goran Dragic showed why the Heat traded for him on Monday with 23 points, two rebounds, 10 assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

He only had one assist in his Heat debut on Saturday and was on the other end of the spectrum tonight. Dragic was highly involved in the offense and he should add plenty more double-doubles with his new team. He's one of the best point guards in the paint, which should complement the rest of the starters. He's a must-start player.

Erik Spoelstra said of his "biggest priorities" is to make Goran Dragic "feel comfortable as soon as we can."

"It was tough. Sometimes you didn’t know where to go," Dragic said of his debut with his new teammates. Spoelstra also said that the Heat want to "play to his strengths" when talking about Dragic's acclimation, and it will be an adjustment process for all involved. Even Dwyane Wade admitted it will take some time to play with another guy who can create off the dribble, and it sounds like the Heat will be tinkering with their new look for at least the next several contests.
Feb 23 - 10:12 AM

Goran Dragic didn't play well in his first game with the Heat on Saturday during a 105-91 loss to the Pelicans, scoring 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer.

The Heat offense was lost tonight with a lot of guys standing around Dwyane Wade (19 points, four rebounds and four assists) The Heat also used a lot of three-guard lineups tonight, which was a big complaint from Dragic in Phoenix. He obviously gets a pass here and should be better on Monday against the 76ers.
Feb 21 - 10:37 PM

Goran Dragic will start against the Pelicans on Saturday.

"We brought him here to play. We brought him here to start," coach Erik Spoelstra said. Dragic and the Heat will play at a faster tempo and the former Sun should be operating with the ball a lot more. He also played next to some floor-spacing guys, so it'll be interesting to see how he fits in with some new guys. Obviously, he should see a full complement of minutes and is a must-start player.
Feb 21 - 5:58 PM

Goran Dragic will play against the Pelicans on Saturday night.

Coach Erik Spoelstra also said he expects to see the Heat increase their pace.That's a great sign all around because the Heat rank dead last in the NBA in pace this season. With Dragic in the mix, Mario Chalmers and Shabazz Napier will lose playing, which is too bad after both played very well on Friday. Dragic should see his fantasy value increase and it'll go up even higher when the Heat rest Dwyane Wade.
Feb 21 - 3:46 PM

Goran Dragic is hoping to make his Heat debut on Saturday, meaning he will not play Friday vs. the Knicks.

If the Dragic brothers, and other players involved in the trade, all pass their physicals, look for Goran to start on Saturday. In the meantime, Mario Chalmers could have a big game Friday for the shorthanded Knicks.
Feb 20 - 12:40 PM

The Heat are expected to offer Goran Dragic a five-year, max-contract worth upwards of $100 million when he opts out of his contract to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Miami wouldn't have given up two first-round draft picks without feeling good about their chances of retaining Dragic this offseason, and his fantasy value is due for a significant boost with the move to South Beach. Mario Chalmers' value on the other hand is due to take a sizable hit, as he's forced to a bench role to accommodate The Dragon in the starting unit.

Goran Dragic has been traded from the Suns to the Heat for a package that includes four players and two first-round draft picks.

The Suns received a good haul for Dragic, who demanded a trade due to unhappiness with his role. He gives the Heat a huge upgrade at point guard and makes them a more dangerous playoff team, and his fantasy value should surge with less competition in Miami. His brother Zoran Dragic was also dealt to Miami as part of the bargain.
Feb 19 - 2:48 PM

Phoenix and Miami are still reportedly discussing a deal that would land Goran Dragic in Miami.

The reported deal involves Miami sending two first-round picks, Josh McRoberts, Norris Cole, and Chris Anderson to Phoenix in exchange for Dragic. However, Dragic can opt out of his contract next season, so Miami probably will want Dragic to commit to Miami before making an official move.
Feb 19 - 2:48 PM

Miami is offering two future first-round picks for Goran Dragic, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN.com.

Broussard adds Suns owner Robert Sarver is "being stubborn," which doesn't really hold much weight with several hours to go until the deadline. Additionally, the Heat probably won't have their 2015 pick because it's going to the 76ers -- it's top-10 protected, but Miami should make the playoffs. Dragic is reportedly interested in the Heat, but they really don't have the assets.
Feb 19 - 10:44 AM

The Sacramento Kings have reportedly cooled on their interest in trading for Goran Dragic, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.

The Kings were not on Dragic's list of preferred teams and have been told that Dragic is unlikely to sign an extension with them, so their interest has understandably waned. We're bound to have a plethora of Dragic updates before the trade deadline, but it's sounding like he won't be headed to Sacramento.
