Goran Dragic PG PHO 4 Days
Goran Dragic hit 6-of-11 shots for 19 points, two rebounds, one assist, four steals, a block and two 3-pointers in Wednesday's win over the Rockets.
The one assist is highly disappointing, and is likely a direct result of Eric Bledsoe finally playing like Eric Bledsoe tonight (20 points, 7 assists). But the fact Dragic still contributed nicely in every other category should leave owners with a good feeling. And while Dragic's numbers will take a hit now that Bledsoe is healthy again, he should still be a very serviceable point guard going forward.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 8 Days
Goran Dragic hit 6-of-13 shots, 11-of-13 free throws and a 3-pointer on his way to 24 points, nine assists and a steal on Saturday.
Dragic could cool off once Eric Bledsoe rejoins the starting lineup, but we're not counting on that happening. Dragic has been as good as any point guard in the league over the last two weeks and we're not sure that Bledsoe replacing Gerald Green is going to do much damage. That move is likely to happen in the next game, but owners of Dragic should start him confidently for three games this week.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 10 Days
Goran Dragic is enjoying his old role of floor general with Eric Bledsoe sidelined.
"I like my old role," Dragic said. "All my life, I played the point guard. It's a learning process to play position two but all the good teams have to do that." It's unclear exactly when Eric Bledsoe will return, but Dragic has been playing out of his mind with 22.6 points and 9.0 assists over his last five games and fantasy owners should just buckle their seat belts and enjoy the ride.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 10 Days
Goran Dragic hit 10-of-18 shots and four more 3-pointers to tie a season high with 31 points to go along with five rebounds, 10 assists and a block as the Suns knocked off the red-hot Blazers on Wednesday.
Dragic's career best is 32 points, so he came up just short against Damian Lillard and company. He has been an absolute beast since Eric Bledsoe went down with his mysterious shin injury, and is averaging a ridiculous 22.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, 9.0 assists and 1.8 steals on 51 percent shooting over his last five games. Sure, the chances of Bledsoe's return slowing him down are pretty strong on paper, but Dragic looks like one of the game's elite point guards right now, and should be able to play at a high level even when Bledsoe is finally ready to return.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 13 Days
Goran Dragic flirted with a triple-double in Monday's loss to the Heat, scoring 14 points on 5-of-12 shooting (no threes) with eight rebounds, nine assists and a steal.
Dragic got to torch Norris Cole and the Heat didn't kick things into gear until the second half. Expect him to come back to earth a little bit whenever Eric Bledsoe returns.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 14 Days
The Suns won on the road in Orlando on Sunday, as Goran Dragic handed out a season-high 13 assists while scoring a game-high 23 points.
He scored the Suns' final seven points and finished 10-of-17 from the field overall, including two 3-pointers. Perhaps most impressive from an efficiency standpoint is that he dished out all those assists without a single turnover. His reckless style of play may lead to more injuries and DNPs than your average PG, but when healthy he's a blast to have playing for you team.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 17 Days
Goran Dragic scored a season-high 31 points during a 113-106 loss to the Kings on Wednesday, adding two boards, five assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes.
He shot 10-of-20 from the field and 8-of-9 from the charity stripe to get him to his season high in scoring. The Suns not having Eric Bledsoe has put much of the scoring burden on Dragic, but he's still scoring 14 per night with plenty of production in other areas. He's a bit of an unheralded stud in standard formats.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 22 Days
Goran Dragic started on Friday after taking 13 stitches to his face in Wednesday's game, scoring 19 points on 5-of-12 shooting (0-for-4 3PTs, 9-of-10 FTs) with 10 assists and two steals over 46 minutes in the Suns' 100-98 overtime loss to the Nets.
It's good to see Dragic playing such heavy minutes after ankle issues dogged him there for a bit, and even though he did good tonight now might be a good time to outsmart his current owner. He is clinging to late-round value on a per-game basis because of his various issues, but he still profiles as a mid-round value on the year and it's possible they'll consider this a micro-level sell-high moment.
Goran Dragic PG PHO 23 Days
Goran Dragic should be in the starting lineup on Friday despite an eye injury that required 13 stitches on Wednesday night.
Coach Jeff Honacek confirmed that he's using the same starting lineup tonight, which means Dragic and Eric Bledsoe will be in the backcourt, with Gerald Green coming off the bench.
