Entornointeligente.com / Goran Dragic hates sitting out games and being a spectator ? especially when he feels like he could play.
But the Heat?s All-Star point guard looks like he?s going to have to do exactly that when Miami (43-38) wraps up the regular season against the Toronto Raptors (59-22) on Wednesday night at AmericanAirlines Arena.
Coach Erik Spoelstra has listed Dragic, 31, as doubtful for the game after he bumped knees in the second quarter Monday night with Oklahoma City center Steven Adams while fighting through a screen. Dragic, who has been battling pain in his right knee for the last month of the season, expects to be ready for the start of the playoffs this weekend.
?Everything is fine, but we?re going to be smart about this and give him another day?s rest,? Spoelstra said of Dragic, who sat out the Heat?s last win April 4 at Atlanta to rest the same knee and an ailing right ankle. ?Everybody is ready to go [otherwise]. I?m planning on playing the full rotation, the normal rotation and plugging guys in for Goran.?
