INJURY UPDATE: Goran Dragic had his right knee drained this morning and will be out for the next couple of games. The hope is for the knee inflammation to subside enough by next week for a possible consistent return to action.
The procedure was part of an attempt to reduce the level of inflammation Dragic has been experiencing. Earlier this month, he missed a trio of contests over a four-game stretch before making it back for next four contests. However, the pain returned and once against sent him to the sidelines for the Lakers clash.
The additional rest he’ll now have will also play a part in alleviating the problem. The hope is that he’ll be able to take the court again for the Heat’s home game against the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 27.
For the 2018-19 campaign, the 32-year-old Dragic has averaged 30.8 minutes per game in his 13 contests. During that time, he’s averaged 16.3 points, 4.7 assists and 3.3 rebounds.
