Date:

Goran Dragic (illness) returned to action on Wednesday with 11 points, nine assists, three rebounds, two steals, one 3-pointer and four turnovers.

Dragic said that his fever returned on Wednesday but he still played 38 minutes in a disappointing OT loss vs. the Lakers in L.A. The Heat get a day off before facing the Kings on Friday, so Dragic should be ready to roll in a favorable matchup vs. Rajon Rondo and company.

Goran Dragic (illness) will start against the Lakers on Wednesday.

He was almost a lock to play and he should be ready to go without any restrictions. Dragic has a great matchup tonight, so be sure to have him in your lineup.

Updating a previous item, Goran Dragic (illness) said "hopefully" he will play against the Lakers on Wednesday.

"We're going to talk through the game how I'm going to feel, but we'll see," Dragic said. "I had a fever and a good sweat. I mean, it was no energy, aching, but now it's over hopefully." It still sounds like Dragic should be ready to roll, but there is a chance he rests here.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Dragic has a great draw tonight against a Lakers defense that ranks 30th against opposing PGs this season. This is also a nice opportunity to get him at a relatively low ownership percentage given that he sat out Monday (due to illness, not injury). Since Chris Bosh has been out of the lineup, Dragic owns a healthy 24.8% usage rate and has shouldered more of the offensive responsibility behind Dwyane Wade. While it's possible this game gets ugly in the 4th quarter, Dragic's ceiling is extremely high in this spot.

Goran Dragic (illness) will play against the Lakers on Wednesday night.

He missed Monday due to an illness and it sounds like he should be close to 100 percent. Dragic gets a nice matchup i his return, so fantasy owners should have him locked and loaded. Josh Richardson will move back to the bench, but he should still be owned in standard leagues.

Pat Riley praised Goran Dragic's play during a recent interview.

"We love Goran," Riley said. "Now he's playing like The Dragon. His game has opened up. I'm very happy that we have this point guard." There was talk earlier in the year that Miami would trade away Dragic during the offseason in order to pursue Mike Conley as an unrestricted free agent, but those rumors have been quelled by Dragic’s strong play as of late. Since the break, Dragic has put up fourth-round value in 8-cat leagues with averages of 17.5 points, 7.4 assists and 1.1 steals per game on 48.6 percent shooting, and he shows no signs of slowing down.

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

He's simply dealing with an illness, although it wouldn't be shocking to see him take the night off against the 15-59 Lakers. If he's out, Josh Richardson would likely start, and he'd make for an intriguing punt play in DFS. Owners can expect another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround.
Mar 29 - 6:55 PM

Goran Dragic (illness) is traveling with the Heat on their trip to Los Angeles on Tuesday.

The Heat start a three-game road drip on Wednesday and Dragic will be with the team despite his illness. It's unclear if Dragic will be able to play against the Lakers on Wednesday, but his presence on the trip suggests he'll appear in at least one of the three games. Josh Richardson makes for an interesting play on Wednesday if Dragic sits, so make sure to check back for updates.
Mar 29 - 10:47 AM

Goran Dragic (illness) will not play against the Nets on Monday night.

The Heat really don't have any other point guards besides Josh Richardson right now, so he should get plenty of run tonight. Tragic is hopeful for the road trip, so he should be able to play in the other three games this week. His absence also makes Richardson a very interesting player to use tonight and for this week.
Mar 28 - 5:50 PM

Goran Dragic said that he's feeling "great."

"My body is a little bit banged up," he said. "That’s normal, like everybody else. But energy-wise, my legs, I feel fresh." The proof is in the play for Dragic, who is averaging 17.0 points, 4.5 rebounds, 7.6 assists, 1.1 steals and 1.0 triples on 49.7 percent shooting through 13 March games.
Mar 28 - 9:55 AM

Goran Dragic scored 22 points with eight assists, four steals and one 3-pointer against the Magic on Friday.

He had his first dunk with the Heat in this win to surprise the home folks. Dragic has really improved on offense since the break with 17.5 points per game, which crushes his pre-break 12.2 points per game. He's been a sixth-round player since the break.
Mar 25 - 11:27 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) was held to just four points on 2-of-8 shooting during Wednesday's loss in San Antonio, adding four assists, two steals and six turnovers in 25 minutes.

Dragic suffered a minor left ankle injury in Miami's last game, but his struggles tonight were a product of the Spurs' suffocating defense. He's found a nice groove after a slow start with the Heat, and in his past 15 games he's averaging 17.7 points. 1.0 threes, 5.1 rebounds, 7.3 assists and 0.7 steals. More defensive stats would be nice, but most owners won't complain about steady mid-round value. He'll fare better vs. the Magic on Friday.
Mar 24 - 12:21 AM

Goran Dragic (ankle) is a go for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

He suffered a minor ankle tweak on Tuesday, but played through it, and there have been no reports of him having any restrictions for tonight's game. He could be a bit more involved offensively with Luol Deng (quad) unavailable, so go ahead and get him active.

Goran Dragic (ankle) is not being listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game vs. San Antonio.

Dragic tweaked his left ankle late in the second quarter of Tuesday's win over the Pelicans, although he played through the injury and it looks like he'll be good to go for tonight's game. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Mar 23 - 1:18 PM

Goran Dragic said following Tuesday's win over New Orleans that he suffered a mild left ankle sprain after coming down on referee Bill Kennedy's foot awkwardly late in the second quarter.

"It was a little bit sore through the game, but when you’re warm you don’t feel it," Dragic said. "We’re gonna see [Wednesday vs. Spurs]. It’s a little bit sore but that’s it." Dragic did play through the injury, but there's a chance his ankle flares up on him during the flight to San Antonio. For now, we'll be considering Dragic questionable for tonight's game, and if he's out, Josh Richardson would likely return to the starting five with Dwyane Wade and Joe Johnson running the offense. Stay tuned.
