Dragic delivered 12 points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five assists, two rebounds, and two steals in 21 minutes during Monday's 120-87 win over the Hawks.
Dragic came off the bench and provided a boost offensively, draining three treys and dishing five dimes. He did commit four turnovers, and the emergence of Tyler Herro, who had 23 points in 25 minutes as a starter, may not bode well for Dragic's odds of earning a spot in the starting lineup. Nevertheless, Dragic would likely see his usage drop substantially if he started alongside the likes of Jimmy Butler and Justise Winslow, so it's possible a reserve role will actually help Dragic remain relevant in standard leagues.

It was initially announced that Dragic would get the night off for maintenance, but the Heat flipped his designation to available shortly after. He logged 20 minutes and scored eight in his lone preseason action one week ago.

The Heat continue to limit Dragic's minutes in the preseason, holding him out for another exhibition. His availability for Thursday's clash with Orlando is unknown at this point.
Dragic (rest) has been ruled out for Wednesday's preseason game against the Hornets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Miami is managing Dragic's workload in the preseason after a knee injury forced the veteran guard to play the fewest games of his career (36) in 2018-19, so he'll sit for the second half of the team's back-to-back set. Dragic played 20 minutes off the bench Tuesday against the Spurs, notching eight points (3-4 FG), three rebounds and four assists.

There is no word on Dragic not playing, so right now the assumption is that he will just come off the bench. Justise Winslow will replace him at point guard. There is nothing to read into here, as the Heat are presumably just using the preseason to toy around with specific lineups. Dragic is expected to start at point come opening night.
