Goran Dragic scored 27 points during a 111-110 win over the Jazz on Thursday, adding six assists and four rebounds.

Dragic had a strong fourth quarter, scoring 14 of his 27 points and tied his season high in points. With all the injuries on the Heat, he has been playing a lot of minutes, averaging 36.3 over his last three games compared to his season average of 32.5 and has been asked to carry this team. He has at least 16 points in the last three games and has a good matchup on Saturday against the Trail Blazers who play at a fast pace, which should create extra opportunities.

Goran Dragic returned from his elbow injury on Monday and went off for a season-high 27 points, a season-high 17 assists and a steal on 8-of-15 shooting in Monday's loss to the Celtics.

He also hit 11-of-12 free throws and looked fantastic after missing the last two games with his injury. Hopefully you had him in your lineup for his best game in recent memory. And now you just have to hope he's ready to start going off on a nightly basis for the Heat.

Goran Dragic (elbow) is a go for Monday's game against the Celtics.

Miami seriously needs him with both Tyler Johnson (tooth) and Dion Waiters (groin) out tonight, so his minutes will likely be in the high-30s tonight, and he's on the radar in DFS. Season-long owners should obviously deploy him with confidence.

Goran Dragic (elbow) remains questionable for Monday's game vs. Boston.

Dragic said over the weekend that he was "hopeful" to play, but he may have to try to give it a go with Dion Waiters (groin) and Tyler Johnson (oral surgery) already ruled out. If Dragic is unable to play, Josh Richardson is going to be one busy man on Monday.

Goran Dragic said he is "hoping" to play Monday against Boston.

Dragic said he couldn't extend his elbow when shooting, dribbling or passing after picking up the injury on Monday in Philly, and he hasn't practiced since Wednesday's game vs. Detroit. He's been doing some cardio on the side to stay in shape, but the Heat wanted to take it easy on him over the weekend. The Heat will not practice on Sunday, so we won't hear anything else regarding his status until Monday's shootaround. Josh Richardson, Dion Waiters, Rodney McGruder and Tyler Johnson will all benefit if Dragic misses more time.

Goran Dragic (elbow) and Justise Winslow (wrist) are out against the Grizzlies on Saturday.

That means the Heat should be rolling with the same starters of Josh Richardson, Dion Waiters, Rodney McGruder, Derrick Williams and Hassan Whiteside. This will be Dragic's second game out due to his elbow issue and he should be considered questionable. Besides the starters, both James Johnson and Tyler Johnson get big bumps in opportunity today.
Nov 26 - 6:22 PM

Goran Dragic (elbow) is listed as doubtful for Saturday against the Grizzlies.

He missed Friday night's action and was ruled out before warmups. Dragic is only day-to-day, so he has a good chance to play Monday against the Celtics. If he is out for tonight, Rodney McGruder should get another start on the wing while Josh Richardson gets another shot as the starting point guard. Tyler Johnson should also get minutes in the low 30s. Both Richardson and Johnson are worth owning in all standard leagues.

Goran Dragic (elbow) has been ruled out for Friday against the Grizzlies.

Just as he got over his ankle injury, a new ailment sends Dragic to the sideline. The Heat said he is only day-to-day, so he may be able to go against the Grizzlies on Saturday. The last time Dragic was out, Josh Richardson started at the point, so that may happen again with Rodney McGruder starting. Even if Tyler Johnson stays on the bench, both he and Richardson should benefit.
Nov 25 - 6:34 PM

Goran Dragic (strained left elbow) is listed as questionable for Friday's game vs. the Grizzlies.

Dragic had finally moved past a nagging ankle injury, now we find out he is dealing with an elbow issue. Per Heat reporter Anthony Chiang, Dragic had an ice pack wrapped around his left elbow after Wednesday's shootaround, but said he was "ok" when asked about it. Dion Waiters (strained right groin) is also listed as questionable. If both Dragic and Waiters miss Friday, expected a major increase in minutes for both Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson.
Nov 25 - 10:57 AM

Goran Dragic hit 7-of-14 shots and two 3-pointers for 22 points, three rebounds, six assists and a steal in 37 minutes of Saturday's 114-111 win over the Wizards.

He's been back from his ankle injury for two games and had 16-6-4 on Thursday. He's good to go, while his backup, Tyler Johnson, struggled for five points on 1-of-9 shooting tonight.
Nov 19 - 10:45 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) played 35 minutes in his return to the lineup on Thursday against the Bucks, scoring 16 points with six rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He wasn't running the offense quite as much as normal, but it could have been due to Dion Waiters actually having a good game. Even though the Heat have a couple young guards, Dragic's minutes and role seem to be locked up. Expect him to flirt with top-50 value this season.
Nov 17 - 10:50 PM

Goran Dragic, Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson, Derrick Williams and Hassan Whiteside will start against the Bucks on Thursday.

The Heat will go smaller against the lengthy Bucks lineup. Dragic went through shootaround and warmed up for this game, so he should be good to go. We'll see how coach Erik Spoelstra divides up his minutes, but you can bet they go small as much as possible.
Nov 17 - 6:59 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) will warm up with the intention to play against the Bucks on Thursday.

He went through shootaround this morning and most signs point to Dragic returning from his Nov. 10 ankle sprain. If he is back, it'll be very interesting to see how the guard rotation shakes out with Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson. All three should get at least 24 minutes while Dion Waiters may lose some run.
Nov 17 - 5:51 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) went through shootaround on Thursday.

A decision will be made later in the day as to Dragic's availability for Thursday's game against the Bucks. Check back for updates, but going through shootaround is a good sign. If Dragic is able to play on Thursday, Josh Richardson and Tyler Johnson will see their otherwise expected production take a bit of a hit.
