Goran Dragic scored 20 points during a 101-89 win over the Nets on Saturday, adding seven rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
Even including this game, he hasn't been very good since Hassan Whiteside (knee) went down. In those games, he only averaged 12.2 points, 4.0 boards, 3.6 assists, 1.0 steal and 1.0 treys. On the lighter side of things, coach Erik Spoelstra was asked about Dragic once his career is over and said he could stay and work with NBA, or go back to Slovenia and become president. His fantasy owners should elect him to their starting lineup with four games this week. Dec 9 - 11:14 PM

Goran Dragic was quiet in 29 minutes on Wednesday, scoring eight points on 3-of-11 shooting with six assists, four rebounds and one steal.

It wasn't a total loss, thanks to the dimes and steal, but this makes four duds in Dragic's past five games. He found himself on the bench for the final seven minutes tonight, but that was likely just because Dion Waiters and Tyler Johnson were red-hot and the Heat needed to erase a late deficit. If anything, we'll continue to view this as a buy-low opportunity.
Dec 7 - 12:45 AM

Goran Dragic had another night to forget on Friday vs. the Hornets, scoring seven points on 3-of-12 shots with five assists, four rebounds and five turnovers in 28 minutes.

Luckily for the Heat, they were able to sneak by the Hornets thanks to Josh Richardson. Dragic was named the Eastern Conference Player of the Week on Nov. 26, but it's been all downhill since. He's averaging just 6.7 points on a combined 6-of-29 (20.6%) shooting with no triples over his last three games, but unless he's playing through an injury we don't know about, then we expect him to bounce back and this would be an ideal time to see if you can get him for pennies on the dollar.
Dec 1 - 10:51 PM

Goran Dragic hit just 1-of-5 shots and missed both of his 3-pointers for seven points, two rebounds, four assists and a steal in 23 minutes of Tuesday's 108-97 loss to the Cavaliers.

This wasn't a great matchup for Dragic, especially after the Heat fell behind by 30 early. Jose Calderon only played 17 minutes for the Cavs and Tyler Johnson split minutes with Dragic tonight, but they combined to hit just 1-of-10 shots for seven points and eight assists. Dragic should bounce back in the next one, when the Heat play the Knicks on Wednesday night.
Nov 28 - 9:51 PM

Goran Dragic bounced back on Wednesday with 27 points (8-of-17 FGs, 9-of-10 FTs), five rebounds, four assists and one steal.

The Dragon made two 3-pointers but most of his damage came at the free-throw line, where he matched his season high in attempts. He was held to eight points and six points in Miami's previous two games, so this was a welcome return to form for Dragic's fantasy owners.
Nov 22 - 11:14 PM

Goran Dragic was quiet vs. Indiana on Sunday, making 3-of-8 shots for eight points, five rebounds and four assists in 27 minutes.

The Heat were trounced in a 25-point home loss tonight, and we're not reading into Dragic's poor game even though he also scored just six points on Friday. He chipped in one steal and a pair of 3-pointers tonight, and if anything this looks like a nice buy-low moment.
Nov 19 - 7:54 PM

Goran Dragic scored 21 points with four rebounds, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes against the Wizards on Wednesday.

He was hot in the third with all three of his triples coming in that frame. Dragic has consistently been in the 18-23 range for points with 11 of his last 13 games having that point total. Consistency is a good thing in season-long fantasy, so his owners should continue to expect him to flirt with top-50 value and not much else.
Nov 15 - 10:00 PM

Goran Dragic finished with 18 points, three assists, two rebounds and a steal across 33 minutes on Friday at Utah.

Dragic hit 7-of-17 from the field, but it wasn't all great. He also committed five turnovers. Still, he kept alive his streak with at least one triple in all 12 games this season, and he remains a player with Top 50 potential. He contributes favorably in all categories except for blocked shots.
Nov 11 - 12:51 AM

Goran Dragic scored 29 points during a 126-115 win in Phoenix on Wednesday, adding nine rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 38 minutes.

He's one of a handful of former Phoenix point guards to not want to play there anymore, so the revenge narrative won't be going away when he comes back. Dragic also saw four more minutes above his average because of Tyler Johnson (illness) not playing tonight. Dragic is still on cruise control as he continues to flirt with 20 points per game while helping in every other category except for blocks as a high-volume point guard. He should flirt with top-50 value all season.
Nov 9 - 12:46 AM

Goran Dragic scored 12 points on 3-of-9 shooting Sunday, to go with six assists, two 3-pointers, four rebounds, one steal and two turnovers in 32 minutes.

Dragic got the Patrick Beverley treatment in this one, but he shouldn’t have any trouble bouncing back on Monday in Golden State. He’s on track for another top-50 season with averages of 19.3 points, 4.0 boards, 4.9 dimes, 1.9 triples, 0.9 steals and 2.0 turnovers per contest on 48.5 percent shooting.
Nov 5 - 6:44 PM

Goran Dragic played through an illness in Wednesday's 97-91 win over the Bulls and scored a team-high 20 points.

After sitting out Tuesday's practice, Dragic seemed fine and was able to log 34 minutes. He hit 7-of-17 shots and 4-of-5 free throws, adding six assists, five rebounds, one steal and two triples. He's producing sixth-round value in standard 9-category leagues and there's still room to grow once his steals come back up.
Nov 1 - 11:48 PM

Goran Dragic (illness) and Hassan Whiteside (knee) will play Wednesday vs. the Bulls, as expected.

Dragic sat out Tuesday's practice, but he was a full participant during shootaround and there was never much doubt about his availability for tonight's game. Erik Spoelstra hinted that he'll monitor Whiteside's minutes in his first game back, so while he's safe to activate in all season-long settings, he's not quite as desirable in daily leagues. Dion Waiters, Josh Richardson and Okaro White will join Dragic and Whiteside in the starting five.

Goran Dragic (illness) was a full participant during shootaround and is expected to play Wednesday vs. the Bulls.

Dragic skipped Tuesday's practice with the illness, but it doesn't seem like this bug will be bringing The Dragon down for Wednesday's game. Check back for official confirmation on his status closer to tip-off.
Nov 1 - 12:06 PM

Goran Dragic (illness) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

Dragic sat out Tuesday's practice due to the illness, but the Heat don't seem overly concerned here. We'll have a better idea on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it doesn't sound like owners should be concerned about The Dragon missing a game.
Oct 31 - 5:46 PM

Goran Dragic (illness) was unable to practice on Tuesday, but the Heat are hopeful he will be available for Wednesday's game vs. Chicago.

Dragic is averaging 19.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 1.5 3-pointers over 34.7 minutes per game this season. If he is unable to suit up on Wednesday night, Tyler Johnson would likely draw the start at point guard and would be an attractive streaming and DFS option. We should have an update on Dragic's status after Miami's shootaround on Wednesday morning.
