Goran Dragic scored 17 points on 7-of-13 shooting Sunday, to go with five rebounds, five assists, three 3-pointers and four turnovers in 35 minutes.
Dragic is sacrificing his individual stats to fit into Miami's system, which has limited him to just late-round value on the year with averages of 12.5 points, 5.5 assists, 1.3 three-pointers and 2.4 turnovers per game on 48.8 percent shooting. He's still worth owning in most leagues due to his mid-round upside, but it could be tough for him to be much more than a late-round guy in Miami while Dwyane Wade is healthy. Feb 7 - 6:01 PM

Goran Dragic scored 12 points with eight rebounds, nine assists, two steals and no turnovers in 32 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

It would have been cool for two players to drop triple-doubles on the same team in the same game with one doing it with blocks, but we'll have to wait for that. Dragic is rounding into form and is worth starting most nights now that he's healthy again.

Goran Dragic (illness) will start vs. the Hornets on Friday.

He missed shootaround but was already expected to play, so this merely confirms that he's ready to go. The Dragon has been up and down this season, but he's still worth deploying in standard leagues in a relatively favorable matchup vs. Charlotte.

Goran Dragic (illness) is expected to play on Friday vs. the Hornets.

He missed the morning shootaround, but he's simply dealing with a cold and his status really isn't in doubt. For now, it's safe to active Dragic in all season-long lineups. We'll have an update prior to tip-off to be safe.
Feb 5 - 12:14 PM

Goran Dragic isn't worried about critics who are bringing up his past stats.

While Dragic has been struggling to adjust in his first full season with the Heat, he doesn't think it's fair for critics to bring up his stats from previous seasons. "I’m not even paying attention to those people who say, ‘Oh, he used to average 20,’" said Dragic. "You know, they don’t know a lot about basketball. This is a team sport." Dragic's season averages of 12.1 points, 3.2 rebounds, 5.1 assists, 1.1 steals, and 0.9 treys aren't what his fantasy owners were hoping for, but he's still worth a start in standard leagues as long as he's healthy.
Feb 4 - 11:08 AM

Goran Dragic had 14 points, four rebounds, six assists and a 3-pointer in 33 minutes of Tuesday's loss.

This was his best game since returning from a calf injury three games ago and it's time to get him back in your lineup.
Feb 2 - 11:10 PM

Goran Dragic had nine points, two rebounds, four assists and one steal in only 23 minutes vs. the visiting Hawks on Sunday.

It was only Dragic's second game after missing more than two weeks of action, and the Heat were in control of the game, so Erik Spoelstra used the opportunity to give Dragic extra rest. He's healthy and has had time to adjust to Miami's system and personnel, so there's a good chance he'll play better in the second half of the season. Many of his owners are ready to dump him for pennies on the dollar, so fire up some buy-low offers.
Jan 31 - 9:22 PM

Goran Dragic said that his calf felt great in Friday's win over the Bucks.

"I was surprised a little bit," Dragic said of his playing time. "But like I said, I felt great. No pain, nothing." Dragic played 32 minutes with 12 points, eight assists, one board, one steal and one 3-pointer, and the fact that he played so much after missing eight straight games suggests that he is close to 100 percent. Plug him into lineups with confidence.
Jan 30 - 11:15 AM

Goran Dragic scored 12 points in his return on Friday with one rebound, eight assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes against the Bucks.

His team was happy to have him back. "It was great to have him back out there," Dwyane Wade said. Dragic was turning the corner before his calf issue and was putting up mid-round value, so his owners can throw him back into their lineups with hopes he can turn it up another notch.
Jan 30 - 12:43 AM

Goran Dragic (calf) will not have a formal minutes cap during his start against the Bucks on Friday.

He will likely be in the mid 20s for minutes and split time with Beno Udrih. Dragic was playing well before his calf issue, but it might take him a few to get his legs back.
Jan 29 - 6:38 PM

Goran Dragic (calf) will play on Friday vs. the Bucks barring a setback in warmups.

He has missed the last eight games for the Heat, but coach Erik Spoelstra has already said that he is 100 percent. Dragic may not see a full workload on Friday, but owners in season-long leagues can go ahead and get him active in all lineups. Beno Udrih will likely return to the bench and is safe to drop.
Jan 29 - 1:22 PM

Goran Dragic (calf) was a full participant during Thursday's practice and is highly likely to play Friday vs. the Bucks.

Dragic said that he could have played Tuesday vs. the Nets, but the Heat just wanted to make sure he was fully recovered from the calf injury before returning to the court. Dragic said after Thursday's practice that he's no longer experiencing any pain in his calf and is "ready to go" for Friday's game, so it would be shocking if he didn't play vs. the Bucks. Beno Udrih and Tyler Johnson's fantasy values will take a sizable hit with Dragic back in the rotation.
Jan 28 - 3:06 PM

Goran Dragic said on Tuesday that his strained left calf is feeling great, and he's on track to play Friday vs. the Bucks.

"I feel great," said Dragic. "I'm ready to play [Tuesday], but they said they wanted to make sure it's 100 percent healed." The Heat are taking a cautious approach with Dragic, but it sounds like he'll be good to go for Friday's game barring a setback. Beno Udrih and Tyler Johnson's values will take a substantial hit once Dragic is back on the active roster.
Jan 26 - 6:58 PM

Goran Dragic (calf) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Nets as expected.

Dragic has been targeting a return for Friday's game vs. the Bucks, but he was originally listed as questionable for Tuesday. The good news is that he is progressing, so his owners can look forward to having him back in their lineups by the end of the week. Beno Udrih and Tyler Johnson will both lose value upon Dragic's return. For what it's worth, coach Erik Spoelstra said Dragic's calf is fully healed.
Jan 26 - 6:12 PM

Goran Dragic (calf) has been upgraded to questionable for Tuesday's game vs. the Nets.

The injury report out of Miami hasn't been all that reliable lately, and we'd consider Dragic a lot closer to doubtful after an earlier report indicated that he's expected to miss Tuesday's game. Tyler Johnson and Beno Udrih will split minutes at the point guard spot with Dragic on the sidelines on Tuesday, but neither guy makes for all that great of a DFS target. Dragic is hopeful to return Friday vs. the Bucks.
