Goran Dragic scored 30 points in a 117-109 loss to the 76ers on Saturday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes.
That's his fifth 30-point game of the season and clearly Dragic is trending up. Excluding his three October games, Dragic has improved his scoring average in every month this season. The Heat finally had their 13-game winning streak snapped, but even with this loss they are just 1.5 games out of the eighth spot. That bodes well for Dragic staying put at the deadline, which is a good thing for his fantasy owners. Feb 11 - 11:05 PM

Goran Dragic said he now refuses to let trade rumors distract him from focusing on helping Miami win basketball games.

"Maybe in the past, a few years ago, I was really into it," Dragic said. "I was really nervous all the time. I was reading articles. Now I’m not even paying attention about that, I’m only focused on basketball because it can mess your head up if you’re not mentally strong." The stats back up these statements, as Dragic is playing incredibly well of late. Over his last seven games, Dragic is averaging 23.0 points (while shooting a scorching 59.4 percent from the floor and 65.4 percent from downtown), 7.4 assists and 3.6 rebounds.

Goran Dragic hit 13-of-17 shots and a career-high seven 3-pointers for 33 points, nine assists and a steal in Monday's dramatic 115-113 win over the Timberwolves, which was the 11th straight win for the streaking Heat.

Dragic is basically the No. 1 offensive option for the Heat and is having a great season. He was particularly sharp tonight, as evidenced by the outstanding shooting percentage, and is showing no signs of slowing down. And now that the Heat are so hot and making a run at the playoffs, the trade rumors surrounding Dragic have really quieted down.
Feb 6 - 11:24 PM

Goran Dragic scored 27 points with five rebounds, five assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Hawks on Wednesday.

He is coming off a massive January, averaging 21.6 points, 4.0 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.3 steals, 1.6 treys and 51.0 percent from the field. Dragic is actually playing well next to Dion Waiters with a 3.0 percent bump in efficiency, but a 4.1 drop in usage rate. The Dragon should keep rolling regardless. As a quick side note, the Heat are now calling the Dragic and Waiters tandem the 7-11 backcourt because of their numbers.
Feb 1 - 11:25 PM

Goran Dragic scored 23 points to lead to the Heat to their seventh straight on Saturday vs. the Pistons.

The Dragon hit 8-of-14 from the field and 5-of-7 from the line, adding four assists, two rebounds, one steal, two triples and one turnover in 33 minutes. "We're playing for each other, we're fighting for each other," Dragic said. "Everybody's feeling comfortable. We know what we need to do. As long as we take care of business with the defense, we feel like can play with anyone." Dragic has scored 21+ points in five out of those seven games and the Heat are suddenly just five games behind the eighth-seeded Hornets.
Jan 28 - 10:10 PM

Goran Dragic torched the Bulls during a 100-88 win on Friday, scoring 26 points with five rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and one 3-pointer.

The easy shots just kept coming for the Dragon. Appropriately so, the Heat are now the hottest team in the NBA with their six straight wins as the longest active streak. As for Dragic his numbers get a sizable boost when he's not next to Hassan Whiteside (ankle) this year. Without him, Dragic gets an 8.5 true shooting percentage bump, a 2.6 usage rate increase, and runs at a faster pace. He should feast with this Miami team missing bodies.

Heat coach Erik Spoelstra praised Goran Dragic for his strong play after Saturday's win over the Bucks.

"Goran has had a career year; this is not something that’s happening right now," Spoelstra said. "He’s been doing this all season. He’s such a conscientious teammate. We have all these moving parts and he’s trying to make sure everyone is comfortable. He knows he has to be aggressive for us and generate good looks." Dragic's name has been tossed around the rumor mill all season with the Heat looking to rebuild, but the Heat are only going to move him if they can get a considerable package in return -- the Heat have already turned down a offer of Nikola Vucevic and a future first-round pick from Orlando.
Jan 23 - 9:36 AM

Despite swirling trade rumors, Goran Dragic has reiterated his desire is to stay put in Miami.

"If I'm honest," Dragic said, "I feel even better [in Miami] than in Phoenix. I like all my teammates. I feel like I'm in the right spot. My head is clear and I'm working hard to be a better player, a better teammate." Well, If it makes you feel any better Goran, fantasy owners are hoping you stay in Miami as well. Dragic is such a huge part of everything the Heat do on offense, that it's almost impossible to imagine him being traded to a more fantasy-friendly situation. Nonetheless, moving Dragic for a package of picks and younger players might be what's best for Miami longterm. Stay tuned...
Jan 21 - 9:37 AM

The Magic reportedly offered Nikola Vucevic and a future first-round pick for Goran Dragic, but the Heat had "no interest," according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Even if this future first is for 2019 or beyond, the Heat currently are sitting in the No. 2 spot for the lottery, so picking up a draft selection makes at least some sense. For Dragic, he has maintained he wants to stay in Miami, but it'll obviously be up to Pat Riley to make the call on whether or not he can retain him. Stein adds the Heat are "hesitant" to deal their point guard, which isn't surprising to hear to keep the demand higher in the market. A trade would almost certainly hurt Dragic's fantasy value, so his fantasy owners will be rooting for him to stay put.

Goran Dragic hit 11-of-15 shots for a team-high 32 points with six rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in Thursday’s 99-95 win over the Mavericks.

Dragic scored 22 points in the second half and sealed the game with two clutch free throws. He continues to have a solid month, averaging over 20 points per game in January. So long as he remains in Miami, he will produce nice numbers for fantasy owners.
Jan 19 - 11:01 PM

Goran Dragic hit 8-of-15 shots and a 3-pointer for 21 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, a steal and six turnovers in Tuesday's 109-103 win over the Rockets.

The six turnovers were weird and matched James Harden's output in that category, but the rest of his game was stellar, as usual. As long as Dragic isn't traded, he should continue to rack up gaudy stats for the Heat.
Jan 17 - 10:17 PM

The Orlando Magic, among other teams, have expressed interest in Goran Dragic, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.

Dragic will surely be one of the names that are bandied about over the next month, in the lead-up to February's trade deadline. It's hard to imagine a scenario that is more fantasy-friendly to Dragic than the situation in Miami right now. Dragic is the offensive focal point for the short-handed Heat. His Usage Rate of 26.5 represents a career high.

Goran Dragic scored 24 points on 9-of-18 shooting Sunday, to go with two 3-pointers, five boards, five assists, one steal and five turnovers in 42 minutes.

Dragic was forced into heavy minutes with Josh Richardson (foot) hitting the sidelines, and if Richardson is forced into an extended absence, Dragic is going to be forced into a heavy workload for the injury-ridden Heat. Dragic's 3.1 turnovers per game have weighed him down to a seventh-round evaluation in standard 9-cat leagues, but he's a top-50 stud in the 8-cat format.
Jan 8 - 6:12 PM

The Heat's asking price for Goran Dragic is still "too high" to encourage any serious trade discussions according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

There is still plenty of time for the Heat to lower their price, and it's no secret that dealing Dragic for younger pieces and a draft pick(s) would speed up their rebuild. A trade wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing because there are a lot of teams that could use an upgrade at the point, but on the other hand this means that Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson (foot) should be owned in all standard leagues. Dragic is on the books through the 2019-20 season, so the Heat aren't just going to give him away.

Goran Dragic was ejected on Friday vs. the Lakers.

It wasn't anything too serious, as Dragic got involved in a scuffle with Jordan Clarkson and made contact with an official. He will finish the night with 16 points, three assists, three rebounds, two triples and zero turnovers in 23 minutes. Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson will get a bump in the fourth quarter.
