Dragic (rest) said he wants to re-sign with the Heat, the Palm Beach Post reports. "Of course," Dragic said. "If you're gonna find the same language, then it's easy for everybody. It's hard to talk about that right now. We'll see. I need to sit down with my family and explore the options and see what option is the best, but the last two months that I was here was beautiful for me."

Dragic came to Miami from Phoenix at the trade deadline, and while he was unable to lead the Heat to the playoffs, a core of Dwyane Wade, Chris Bosh and Dragic would appear to be in position to compete in the East next season. Dragic has already exercised the opt-out clause in his contract, so if he stays with Miami it will be under a new contract.

Dragic is unlikely to play in Wednesday's season finale, Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post reports.

Dragic has been playing at less than 100 percent down the stretch and with the Heat eliminated from playoff contention, it's unlikely that he'll take the floor Wednesday.

Dragic said he has not been playing at 100 percent lately, the Palm Beach Post reports.

While Dragic has been on a tear of late, he's been telling reporters that he feels "slow" due to nagging back issues. "It's that time of the season," he said. "Your body takes a pounding. We're 70 games into the regular season. I'm having problems with my back. Sometimes after a game, the next day it's really sore. But that's normal." Dragic has been dealing with back spasms in addition to a bruised tailbone, suffered back on Mar. 6 against Washington. While he may not be at his best, it doesn't look like Dragic plans to miss any time, especially with the Heat in the thick of a playoff chase.

Dragic stuffed the stat sheet Friday against the Nuggets, posting 18 points, eight rebounds, five assists, two steals, and one block in 35 minutes of action.

Dragic is averaging 18.6 points, 4.0 rebounds, 6.6 assists, and 2.0 steals on 55 percent shooting from the field over the last five games. His efficiency has been remarkable as a member of the Heat, and it doesn't seem like he'll slow down anytime soon.

Dragic produced a double-double with 20 points (9-16 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 39 minutes during Wednesday's win versus the Blazers.

The 11 dimes marks Dragic's high in a Heat uniform, and just the second occasion in which he dished double digits. More importantly, though, his play has ramped up since missing two contests due to a bruised tailbone. Over the last four outings, he's averaging 18.8 points (on 53 percent shooting), seven assists, three rebounds, and two steals in 38 minutes. The backcourt combo of Dragic and Dwyane Wade is truly humming along at the moment.

Dragic (back) scored 17 points (5-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-9 FT) with three assists and two steals in 35 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Nets.

After missing two games due to a bruised tailbone, Dragic was able to return with a solid performance. Assuming he's able to avoid any further mishaps, he should be a solid fantasy asset on a Heat squad that is clawing for a playoff spot.

Dragic (back) will play Wednesday against the Nets, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

On Tuesday, Dragic estimated that he had a "75 percent" chance to play Wednesday, and he officially ruled himself in following shootaround. Dragic missed a pair of games with a bruised tailbone, which allowed Mario Chalmers to enter the starting lineup. Chalmers will shift back to the bench Wednesday.

Dragic (back) said there's a "75 percent chance" he plays Wednesday agains the Nets, Shandel Richardson of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Monday marked Dragic's second straight absence after the point guard fell hard on his tailbone in Friday's loss to the Wizards. Mario Chalmers has entered the starting lineup in his place, and he'll continue to do so if Dragic remains out Wednesday.

Dragic (back) will not play Monday against the Celtics.

Initially considered a game-time call, Dragic will be held out for the second straight game as he continues to recover from a bruised tailbone. He isn't likely to miss much more time, though, and there's a good chance he'll be in the starting lineup Wednesday against Brooklyn. In the meantime, Mario Chalmers will get the start Monday.

Dragic (back) is a game-time decision Monday, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Shandel Richardson reports.

He sat out Saturday's game with a lower-back contusion, and with the Heat relying on a banged up Dwyane Wade to carry them right now, Dragic's presence Monday would be greatly desired. If Dragic sits out again, look for Shabazz Napier and Mario Chalmers to share the minutes at point guard.
