Goran Dragic had a sub-par game against the Knicks on Saturday with 10 points, one rebound, two assists and one steal in 31 minutes.
He was barely utilized in halfcourt sets and had a major chunk of his buckets in transition. Dragic is playing more with Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe a bit more and he should be a little better than this. Still, he's not going to come close to his fantasy value from last season. Additionally, CBS Sports reports that Dragic is the least likely to be traded. Dec 20 - 4:06 PM

After missing two games with a lower back strain, Goran Dragic said his stamina wasn't there during the second half of Wednesday's win over the Hornets.

Dragic only scored four points in the second half of the win after pouring in 16 in the first half, but it was a good sign for fantasy owners to see him back on the court nevertheless. With his back issues seemingly behind him, the 28-year-old will be able to put full games together and should provide his fantasy owners with top-50 value for the rest of the season.
Dec 18 - 10:37 AM

Goran Dragic looked terrific in his return against the Hornets on Wednesday, scoring 20 points with three rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 37 minutes.

He missed the previous two games due to a strained back and was his aggressive self tonight. Dragic was really turning it on while Isaiah Thomas was out earlier this month and that might be due to his mentality and not because of the personnel. He should be able to flirt with top-50 value.
Dec 18 - 12:00 AM

Goran Dragic (back) will start on Wednesday vs. Charlotte.

After missing the previous two games, Dragic is back and his owners can safely activate him in their lineups. He has a favorable matchup against the Hornets, and should be in for a nice night if his back doesn't flare up on him. Gerald Green will shift back to the bench on Wednesday, while Isaiah Thomas' value takes a slight hit with this news.
Dec 17 - 5:19 PM

Goran Dragic (back) is probable for Wednesday's game after going through shootaround.

He has missed the last two games after his back flared up on him during Friday's game vs. the Pistons, but he appeared to turn the corner and should be good to go Wednesday. Dragic has a favorable matchup against the reeling Hornets, and owners will want to get him active in their lineups. Gerald Green will likely shift back to the bench Wednesday and Isaiah Thomas will also see a decrease in minutes.
Dec 17 - 12:22 PM

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

His back flared up on him on Friday and he missed Sunday, so he could miss additional time. Although, it's somewhat encouraging that the Suns ruled him out just a little over an hour before the game started. With Dragic out, expect to see more of Eric Bledsoe handling the offense. Gerald Green and Isaiah Thomas also get upticks.
Dec 15 - 7:22 PM

Goran Dragic's back initially flared up on him on Friday against the Pistons.

"You get cold and it's more stiff," Dragic said. "It was better (Saturday) when we did therapy. (Sunday), we didn't have practice and it is even tighter." Dragic should be considered questionable to play on Monday against the Bucks, and if he can't give it a go, look for Isaiah Thomas and Eric Bledsoe to make up for Dragic's absence, with Gerald Green collecting some extra time as well.
Dec 15 - 10:48 AM

Goran Dragic (lower back strain) will not suit up for Sunday's game vs. the Thunder, and Gerald Green will start in his place.

Gerald Green, Isaiah Thomas, and Eric Bledsoe will all see an uptick in value with Dragic sidelined, and all of those guys will make for quality plug-and-play options in daily leagues.
Dec 14 - 6:08 PM

Goran Dragic scored 18 points on 8-of-12 shooting (including a three) with five rebounds, five assists and two steals in the Suns' 105-103 home loss to the reeling Pistons on Friday.

This was a bad loss for the Suns and for Dragic and Eric Bledsoe's (16 points, five boards, two threes, one steal, one block) owners it's bad news that Isaiah Thomas is back. We like Bledsoe to hold his value better than Dragic, so if you own Dragic this is a good time to see what you can get in return via trade.
Dec 13 - 3:28 AM

Goran Dragic scored 16 points on 7-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Heat, adding four boards, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 35 minutes.

Fellow guard Eric Bledsoe struggled mightily on Tuesday, so it was left to the Dragon to carry the Suns, though he fell just short. Isaiah Thomas (ankle) could return as soon as Friday, so owners should expect a slight dip in production very soon.
Dec 10 - 12:16 AM

Goran Dragic had a double-double against the Mavericks on Friday with 28 points, two rebounds, 13 assists, one block and three 3-pointers on 10-of-15 from the field.

Isaiah Thomas has missed the last five and it's led to some major production out of Dragic. In that span, he averaged 22.2 points, 4.4 boards, 5.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.4 triples on 58.2 percent from the field. He's had a whopping 36.9 percent of his points come in fast break and has been able to get to the rim at will. He probably won't be this good, but his owners have to be loving this production.
Dec 6 - 2:08 AM

Goran Dragic erupted for a season-high 34 points vs. the Pacers on Tuesday, hitting 11-of-15 shots with five 3-pointers, five boards, three assists and four steals in 35 minutes.

That's more like it. Dragic has been struggling in a reduced role this season, as Isaiah Thomas has usurped some of his playing time, but he was a free man tonight with IT3 sidelined by a bruised ankle. The Dragon was scoring at will against the Pacers, so hopefully the confidence-boost will carry over to Friday's tough road game in Dallas.
Dec 2 - 11:58 PM

Goran Dragic dropped 22 points in Sunday's loss to the magic to go with eight rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 41 minutes.

He did have a whopping five turnovers but the Dragon was his usual self Sunday. Isaiah Thomas (ankle) sat this one out which explains why Dragic's minutes were so high but owners won't be complaining about that. There is no question that that arrival of Thomas this season has dampened his value and it may be tough for Dragic to return top-50 value on the season.
Nov 30 - 11:10 PM

Goran Dragic played 36 minutes against the Nuggets on Wednesday with 20 points, five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 36 minutes.

Isaiah Thomas (ankle), the Suns' leading scorer, did not play tonight, so there wasn't a big mess in coach Jeff Hornacek's guard rotation. Dragic had been quiet over his previous four games with just 9.8 points per game, so this line was nice to see. His fantasy owners shouldn't be expecting many 20-point games once IT3 gets back, though.
Nov 27 - 3:14 AM

Goran Dragic was on the bench down the stretch against the Raptors on Monday with six points, one rebound, four assists and four turnovers in 21 minutes.

Dragic missed his first four shots and couldn't create like he usually does. Coach Jeff Horacek usually goes with the flow on his guards, so nights like this will happen. This is a potential buy-low opportunity as long as you're not paying a top-50 price.
