Goran Dragic scored 23 points with two rebounds, eight assists and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes against the 76ers during a 128-108 loss to the 76ers in Game 3 on Thursday.
He was going right at Marco Bellinelli in the third quarter to keep the Heat in it, but the 76ers severely outplayed Miami in the fourth with a 32-14 advantage. Dragic is likely going to be the main factor in the offense for the rest of this series. The Heat will basically have their season on the line for Saturday's Game 4 Apr 19 - 10:00 PM

Goran Dragic scored 15 points with five rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He was a step slow on defense throughout the game and maybe his knee injury is a problem after all. Dragic said he's going to feel his knee injury in this series, but did think he's 100 percent. We've seen him disappear before and the Heat will be hoping that won't happen again in Game 2.
Apr 14 - 10:49 PM

Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson, James Johnson, Tyler Johnson and Hassan Whiteside will start against the 76ers on Saturday.

Dragic is going to be playing through his knee issue, but he said he's 100 percent. The Heat may not want to put Dragic on Simmons, so coach Erik Spoelstra may have to get creative on defense.
Apr 14 - 7:29 PM

Goran Dragic (knee) is not listed on the injury report for Game 1 on Saturday vs. the Heat.

Dragic sat out the season finale on Wednesday night. Speaking with reporters on Thursday about his knee, he said: "Probably, I’m going to feel it a little bit. But it’s not going to bother me. That’s the only thing that I’m about, I can play through the pain. But as long as it’s not bothering me, I’m OK." He is expected to get his full allotment of minutes in the all-important first game of the series. However, it is something to keep an eye on going forward.
Apr 14 - 9:30 AM

Goran Dragic (knee) said he is 100 percent, but he will feel his knee issue "a little bit" in the playoffs.

"It feels way better now than it was two days ago," Dragic said. "But I’m doing everything that I can. Probably, I’m going to feel it a little bit. But it’s not going to bother me. That’s the only thing that I’m about, I can play through the pain. But as long as it’s not bothering me, I’m OK." The Heat did downplay Dragic's knee issue that kept him out Wednesday, and this isn't the first time he's played through an injury after his elbow problem before the break.
Apr 12 - 8:08 PM

Goran Dragic (knee) is confirmed out for Wednesday against the Raptors.

Coach Erik Spoelstra said the Heat want to be smart and Dragic also talked about Monday's game with his knee issue. "I was just pushing through," he said about Monday’s game. "When you’re hot it feels great. Then when you cool off a little bit it becomes a little bit sore, it swells up. But I’ll be fine. It’s nothing serious." The Heat are expected to run a normal rotation, which means more Rodney McGruder to step up.
Apr 11 - 6:28 PM

Goran Dragic (knee soreness) is doubtful to play Wednesday against the Raptors.

"We're going to be smart about this," head coach Erik Spoelstra said regarding Dragic dealing with soreness in his knee. It sounds like Dragic will be hit with a precautionary rest day on the eve of the postseason, which will result in more minutes for guys like Tyler Johnson, Dwyane Wade and Wayne Ellington. Derrick Walton Jr. or Rodney McGruder could start, but those guys rarely do much even when given the minutes.

Goran Dragic hit just 2-of-10 shots for four points, seven assists and nothing else in Monday's loss to Russell Westbrook.

Autocorrect changes his name to Goran Tragic in our system and his owners probably would have preferred we called him that, as his disappearing act likely cost some fantasy owners in a big way tonight. Either way, Mr. Tragic will likely be out there again in Wednesday's finale against the Raptors, where he'll look to bounce back and get ready for the playoffs.
Apr 9 - 10:10 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) scored 15 points with three boards, two assists, one steal and one triple in Friday's loss to the Knicks.

He was 6-of-10 from the field and hit both of his free throws, but most importantly, he looked healthy after getting a game off on Wednesday. The Heat can still finish anywhere from No. 6 to No. 8 in the East, so we'd expect Dragic to play in at least one of Miami's two remaining games.
Apr 6 - 10:51 PM

Goran Dragic, Josh Richardson, Tyler Johnson, James Johnson and Hassan Whiteside will start against the Knicks on Friday.

Dwyane Wade is also available to play, so the Heat don't appear to be tanking this game. Although, you may want to be careful because they may dial back some minutes. In season-long leagues, you have to start your studs, of course.
Apr 6 - 6:07 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle), Dwyane Wade (wrist) and James Johnson (ankle) will all return to the lineup for Friday's game vs. the Knicks.

Dragic did not suit up on Wednesday, but it appears it was more about rest than an ankle issue, as the Heat have already clinched a playoff berth. Tyler Johnson started for Miami on Wednesday, but will get bumped back to the bench with Dragic returning to game action. The Knicks are terrible defensively, so Dragic should be able to post solid numbers Friday night, as long as the contest stays close.
Apr 6 - 12:21 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) is not on the injury report against the Knicks on Friday.

He got a night off on Wednesday, but it was more about rest. The Heat continue to talk about how they are more concerned with health than seed, but maybe that changes with the Kyrie Irving news.
Apr 5 - 5:28 PM

Goran Dragic (ankle) and Dwyane Wade (wrist) are out Wednesday against the Hawks.

That likely means Tyler Johnson starts at point guard while Rodney McGruder, Justise Winslow or Wayne Ellington move into the first unit. All of the perimeter players should see heavy minutes against a weak defensive team.
Apr 4 - 6:09 PM

Goran Dragic tied a team high with 18 points in Saturday's 110-109 overtime loss against Brooklyn.

Dragic hit 7-of-17 from the field, including 2-of-4 from behind the 3-point line, while also chipping in with eight rebounds and two assists. While he had a plus-11 rating, he did turn the ball over a team-high four times, too. The rebounds were his most since he snagged nine boards in a game in New Orleans on Feb. 23. He remains a fantasy player with mid-round value, and he'll continue to log heavy minutes as the Heat scratch and claw for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Apr 1 - 12:26 AM

Goran Dragic took just nine shots on Sunday, but he made four of them to finish with nine points, six assists, four rebounds and two steals.

Dragic committed just one turnover in 36 minutes of action, and his reduced role offensively is bound to occur in Miami's intentionally balanced attack. "It’s tough because [opponents] cannot focus on only one guy," Dragic said. "They need to focus on a lot — three, four or five guys ... Who’s it going to be tonight? You never know and that’s the beauty of this." Fantasy owners may not feel the same, but Dragic has been cruising with mid-round value and should stay there thanks to Miami's playoff race.
