UPDATE: Dragic is available to play Friday night vs. the Heat.
Goran Dragic will play for Heat tonight. Been out a few games. Not good news for Miller.— Marc Berman (@NYPost_Berman) December 20, 2019
So with Dragic back, that may take away from some of the minutes both Kendrick Nunn and Duncan Robinson were soaking up in the back court with Jimmy Butler. We’re not sure how much Dragic will play or if he’ll come off the bench or not. For now, I think it’s best to play it safe with Dragic in season-long. In DFS, he’d only really offer some leverage in GPPs.
Heat guard Goran Dragic (groin) is missing his ninth straight game tonight vs. Sixers, but there’s optimism that he can make his return on Friday against New York, league sources tell ESPN. Dragic’s averaged 16 points in 28 minutes a game this season.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) December 19, 2019
Dragic has missed the past nine games and he isn’t going to return Wednesday night vs. the Philadelphia 76ers. He’s been out due to a groin injury and has struggled with health issues for what seems like the past couple of seasons. If Dragic can get back on the court, it’s unclear if he’ll return to the starting lineup or come off the bench. The Heat have a lot of depth at guard with the emergence of Duncan Robinson and Kendrick Nunn. Plus Jimmy Butler and Justise Winslow. Dragic may be an afterthought even if he is back and he’d likely be on a minutes limit anyway.
