    Shams Charania is reporting that the Heat would like to sign Goran Dragic to a short-term deal this offseason.

    The Heat are trying to maintain max cap space so they can take a run at Giannis Antetokounmpo and any other big free agent that pops up in the next few years, so flexibility will be the team's top priority. Unsurprisingly, there's mutual interest in a deal here, though it remains to be seen how much more Dragic wants than the team actually offers. Assuming this relationship continues, it's hard to see Dragic emerging with anything more than late-round fantasy value next season given the growth of Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro.

    Goran Dragic was able to return to the court for Game 6 on Sunday, despite dealing with a torn left plantar fascia, and was able to see 19 minutes off the bench and produce five points (2-of-8 shooting), five rebounds, two assists and one steal.

    Dragic wanted to be there to give his team hopefully a better chance at winning Game 6, but the Lakers had other plans and dominated the game early on and snowballed an early lead to claim victory in dominant fashion. It stands to question as to whether Dragic will be back with the Heat next season, but his strong play for them in the playoffs will be something for the history books, for sure.

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) is on the active roster for Sunday's Game 6.

    Dragic was listed as doubtful on the injury report and while active doesn't mean available, this is a positive sign for him. We'll await word from the Heat as to whether or not he'll play, but any minutes Dragic does get will take away from Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro. If nothing else, having The Dragon on the bench should be a huge emotional lift for Miami. It's already been confirmed that he's not starting.

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) remains doubtful for Game 6 vs. the Lakers on Sunday.

    This is basically what we had expected based on recent news. Dragic suffered the injury during the Game 1 loss and while he attempted to warm up for Game 4, he was in obvious pain and barring a miracle, his season is likely done.

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) will miss Friday's Game 5 against the Lakers, per Shams Charania.

    Dragic was initially listed as doubtful and appeared to be in great pain the last time we saw him try to warm up to play. It's a shame that his first Finals appearance resulted in such a quick injury, and he'll have to hope that the Heat can extend the series tonight to give him another shot at taking the court.

    Goran Dragić is doubtful to play in Friday's Game 5 vs. the Lakers as he continues to recover from a torn left plantar fascia.

    It appears likely that we saw the last of Dragić in Game 1 as a torn plantar fascia typically takes more than a month to heal and his injury came just one week ago on September 30. Continue to expect Tyler Herro to start while Kendrick Nunn will continue to get opportunity off the bench as the Heat look to get back in the series after dropping their last contest on Tuesday. The Lakers are currently one win away from winning their 17th championship as they have a 3-1 advantage.

    Goran Dragić (torn left plantar fascia) will not play in Game 4 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday, despite warming up on the floor with his teammates prior to the game, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

    Dragić was doubtful heading into Tuesday and apparently he is still experiencing some pain in his left foot, which is to be expected with the nature of his injury. It appears the Heat will have Bam Adebayo (neck strain) back in the lineup on Tuesday, so that will be a big boost. Dragić seems to be day-to-day at this point and it seems more than likely that he will receive a 'doubtful' tag once again prior to Game 5 on Thursday.

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) will warm up prior to Game 4 on Tuesday in an attempt to play, barring pain tolerance, according to Shams Charania.

    Dragic is going to do all he can to try and play, although we are still a long way from him being available. While it appears Bam Adebayo (neck) is close to a return, Dragic still remains doubtful. Stay tuned for further updates throughout the evening.

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) is doubtful to face the Lakers on Tuesday.

    This news merely confirms what we have been hearing all day. While he would love to be out there with his teammates, there has been very little in the way of positive news when it comes to his current injury. Barring a major update to the contrary, it seems unlikely he will be available on Tuesday.

    Goran Dragic (left foot) made it clear Monday he is experiencing a lot of pain from his torn plantar fascia and said he has not been given a timetable for a return to play.

    Dragic said he had not been given a timetable for return but this is not an official update from the Heat medical staff. ‘No timetable’ often sounds terrible but it does not guarantee Dragic will miss the rest of the series. The Heat seem to be playing their cards close to the chest with this one so as to not make the Lakers’ game planning any easier. Based on prior reporting though, expectations are Dragic won’t return for Game 4 at the very least.

    Goran Dragic will miss Sunday's Game 3 due to his torn left plantar fascia.

    There wasn't a ton of optimism surrounding Dragic's status for this game, and we'd consider him unlikely for Game 4 at this point given how little the Heat have said about his condition. Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro will once again step up in the backcourt as the Heat try to get on the board in these Finals.

    Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) has been ruled doubtful to face the Lakers in Game 3 on Sunday.

    While there is some optimism that Bam Adebayo (neck) will be available for Game 3, the same cannot be said for Dragic. After suffering a major injury during the Game 1 loss, it seems unlikely that Dragic will be able to get out there for what is a must-win game on Sunday. In his absence, Tyler Herro will assume the primary ball-handling responsibilities, while Kendrick Nunn will also see an increased role.

    While the Heat have some hope that Bam Adebayo (neck) will be able to play in Sunday's Game 3, less optimism exists that Goran Dragic (foot) will be able to do the same.

    Dragic tore his left plantar fascia in Game 1 and seems unlikely to play tomorrow even with constant treatment. Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Herro will take on larger roles with Miami's floor general out of action. It's a tall task for two rookies as the Heat face a 0-2 Finals deficit.

    Shams Charania is reporting that Goran Dragic (torn left plantar fascia) will miss Friday's Game 2 against the Lakers.

    Dragic was initially listed as doubtful, and while he's been able to put pressure on his left foot, it is an injury that may sideline him for multiple games. Kendrick Nunn should get more run after putting up a solid showing in Game 1, and he'll be thrust back into the spotlight after falling out of the Heat rotation at the beginning of the playoffs. Anyone who can handle the ball should figure more prominently without The Dragon available.

    Goran Dragic is officially listed as doubtful for Game 2 against the Lakers with a foot injury.

    It's surprising that Dragic isn't listed as out as he tore his plantar fascia in Game 1. He'll most likely remained sidelined for the rest of the Finals. The Heat started Tyler Herro in the second half, but he struggled to get anything going throughout Game 1. He'll bounce back, but Dragic was their leading scorer and one of their best playmakers so it'll be tough for Herro to fill that void.
