Dragic played 29 minutes on Sunday, scoring 19 points, including going 3-of-3 from 3, to go along with 3 assists and 3 steals.

After struggling against the Grizzlies, Dragic was effective against one of the remaining unbeaten teams in the Warriors on Sunday. It seems as Coach Hornacek has come up with a solid guard rotation that should have Dragic see just under 30 minutes per game. He might not be fulfilling expectations just yet, but he does have the minutes to pick it up as the season progresses.

Dragic only managed six points (3-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, three assists and one steal in 26 minutes during the Suns' 102-91 loss versus the Grizzlies on Wednesday.

After winning the Most Improved Player award last season, Dragic has gotten off to a rough start in 2014-15, averaging 12.0 points (41.1 FG, 0.0 3Pt, 93.3 FT), 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists in just under 30 minutes per game. It's only been five games, but those who drafted Dragic expecting him to produce last year's numbers may need to re-adjust their expectations. Still, he should play 30 minutes or more on most nights and regain must-start status in essentially all leagues.
