Goran Dragic Says His Parents Were Told to Return to Slovenia by Government
- Updated: March 31, 2020
NBA players have been in isolation since the regular season was suspended due to the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Amid the coronavirus crisis, Goran Dragic said his parents were told to return to Slovenia. His parents were staying with Goran in Miami. But Goran said he's comfortable staying in South Florida because he has a home here and U.S. health insurance.

In an interview with Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press, Dragic said his parents are already back in Slovenia.
“Three days ago they flew back home because they had to, the government said that all the Slovenian citizens needed to get back,” Dragic said, referring to his parents. “But my situation is different. Here is my home. We have health insurance in America and we have a home to go to, so we’re going to stay here.”
Dragic plans to remain in Miami because the NBA still hopes it can resume play later this year.
Even though team facilities are closed, Dragic said players are participating in daily team workouts on Zoom. He has also been working out at home to stay in basketball shape.
The 32-year-old has spent the last five seasons in Miami since arriving via trade in 2015. He is averaging 16.1 points and 5.1 assists per game this season coming off the bench.
