Goran Dragic had 17 points, six assists, five rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes vs. the Magic on Wednesday.
Dragic shot 6-of-19 from the field but he added one 3-pointer and didn't turn the ball over tonight, which should please 9-cat owners. Miami has taken it easy on Dragic after his busy EuroBasket schedule, which culminated in a championship, but there's no suggestion that he'll be rested. Keep him locked and loaded.

Goran Dragic (rest) will not play on Wednesday against the Wizards.

The Heat are just resting The Dragon after he already played so much for Slovenia over the summer. Dragic is all set as a top-50 pick in standard drafts.
Oct 11 - 6:56 PM

Goran Dragic will rest again on Monday vs. Charlotte.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra hinted last week that Dragic would continue to rest during the preseason so he's fresh for the regular season. Assuming they're active, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson and Dion Waiters will handle the ball tonight.
Oct 9 - 12:22 PM

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said that Goran Dragic may continue to rest during the preseason.

Dragic sat out of Saturday's game vs. Orlando and it sounds like he will sit out at least one of Miami's three remaining preseason games. Fantasy owners obviously don't mind this as they will want Dragic to be fresh as possible after a long summer with the Slovenian National Team.
Oct 8 - 9:13 AM

Goran Dragic had six points and three assists in 14 first-half minutes during Sunday's exhibition win vs. the Hawks.

Dragic has credited international play with keep him sharp to begin his NBA seasons, but the Heat will surely limit him a bit this preseason -- he's coming off a busy summer leading Slovenia to a EuroBasket championship. Expect similar limitations over the next few weeks, as Miami gears up for opening night.
Oct 1 - 8:44 PM

Goran Dragic (rest) did not participate in Wednesday's scrimmage.

The Heat will be taking it easy on Dragic through training camp after he played a lot of minutes for Slovenia at the EuroBasket tournament, but he'll be in tip-top shape when the 2017-18 season begins. He was a top-55 option in 9-cat leagues last season with averages of 20.3 points, 5.8 dimes, 1.2 steals, 1.6 triples and 2.9 turnovers per contest, and he shouldn't have much trouble replicating that success in his age-31 season.

The Heat may give Goran Dragic extra rest during training camp.

Dragic recently carried Slovenia to its first EuroBasket championship and was named MVP of the tournament. However, he had to sit out the fourth quarter of the final due to cramping. Slovenia coach Igor Kokoskov said Dragic "couldn’t play for a quarter. He was cramping on the side, he was laying on the floor. It wasn’t my decision, it was just the body. His body was quitting on Goran." After expending so much energy in mid-September, Miami may choose to rest him more than usual at camp. Still, this won't have any impact on his fantasy value, as he should be completely fresh for the regular season.
Sep 19 - 9:37 AM

Goran Dragic powered Slovenia to a 93-85 win over Serbia in the EuroBasket championship game on Sunday, erupting for 35 points on 12-of-22 shooting and taking home MVP honors.

Dragic added seven boards, three triples, three assists, two steals and three turnovers in his 29 minutes of floor time, and simply put, he was too much to handle for Team Serbia. He'll end his EuroBasket career on a high note, bringing home the gold for Team Slovenia for the first time in EuroBasket history, and setting the single-game scoring record for the Slovenian national team. Dragic will come into Miami's training camp in tip-top shape, and he shouldn't have any trouble at all contributing top-50 value in his 10th NBA season. For what it's worth, he did sit out the fourth quarter due to cramps, but that won't be an issue that affects him at camp.
Sep 17 - 4:50 PM

Goran Dragic scored 15 points with six rebounds and five assists in a win over Spain to get the Slovenian team to the EuroBasket final.

The Slovenians will take on the winner of the Serbia vs. Russia game on Friday. Dragic has played well for almost the entire tournament and he's helped his team get to 8-0. He is 31 years old and sometimes we've seen older players hit a wall after some international competition, but Dragic is still worthy of a pick near No. 50 in standard leagues.
Sep 14 - 4:48 PM

Goran Dragic led Slovenia to a 103-97 win over Latvia on Tuesday, tallying 26 points, eight assists, two 3-pointers, one steal and six turnovers in 32 minutes.

Dragic got cracked with an elbow to the head that sent him to the floor during the closing minutes of the first half of action, but he played through it and didn't look any worse for the wear, so it seems like he avoided a concussion. He also ran Slovenia's offense beautifully and came through with a clutch bucket with the clock winding down to put the game out of reach. The undefeated Slovenian team will now square off with an undefeated Spanish team in the semifinals on Thursday.
Sep 12 - 4:34 PM

Goran Dragic netted 22 points in an easy 95-78 win over France on Wednesday, to go with eight assists, three boards, two 3-pointers, two steals and two turnovers in 28 minutes.

Through the first five games of the EuroBasket tournament, Dragic leads all scorers at 24.4 points per game and he's done that while shooting at a very impressive 50.7 percent clip. As per usual, the 31-year-old veteran has looked great in international play this summer, and he'll make for a fine early mid-round selection on draft day.
Sep 6 - 12:43 PM

Goran Dragic went 6-of-10 from the field and 7-of-8 from the charity stripe for 21 points during Tuesday's easy win over Iceland.

Dragic has been crushing the competition at EuroBasket for years, and today was no different, with him also offering up two triples, four boards, three steals and two turnovers in just 27 minutes of action. He was a steady top-55 option over the course of 73 games with the Heat last season, and he shouldn't have any trouble replicating that success during his age-31 season in Miami.
Sep 5 - 3:09 PM

Goran Dragic scored 29 points with four rebounds and five assists in a win over Finland.

In EuroBasket, Dragon slays you. We've seen Dragic crush in international competition for over a decade, so big lines are nothing new. He's coming off a 30-point game and his style of play should prolong his prime at age 31. He's a fine pick in the fourth round of standard drafts.
Sep 2 - 3:02 PM

Goran Dragic dropped a national team career-high 30 points in Slovenia's 90-81 win over Poland.

Not a bad way to open the Eurobasket tournament. Dragic picked up right where he left off last season, shooting 12-of-23 from the field with four assists and three steals in 30 minutes. The Heat were devastated by injuries in 2016-17 and Dragic carried them with 20.3 points on a career-high 15.4 field goal attempts, but his numbers will likely come back down to earth a bit in his age-31 season. He's still a solid pick in the fourth or fifth round of standard leagues.
Aug 31 - 9:26 AM

Goran Dragic said that he will retire from international basketball after the 2017 EuroBasket tournament.

"When I walked into Stozcie on Thursday and saw the packed arena, I realized that I will be playing my last home game in front of the most beloved people in the world -- my eyes started to water and my legs became heavy," Dragic wrote, according to the translation provided by FIBA, basketball's international ruling body. He's 31 years old, so it makes sense that this will be his last time competing overseas during the offseason.
