THIS IS AN UPDATE TO THE PREVIOUS ARTICLE

Goran Dragic's MRI revealed a Grade 1 calf strain. He is likely to miss two weeks but, he will be re-evaluated after one week. Dragic missed the last game against the Clippers in which the Heat struggled in the second half. In his absence, Beno Udrih started.

The Miami Heat will be without point guard Goran Dragic for the remainder of their current 6 game west road trip. Dragic was sent back to Miami for a MRI on his calf which is listed as a strain and not a tear. Dragic is hoping to be as healthy as he can as soon as he can.

The Heat have been without Josh McRoberts for a long time. Tyler Johnson has missed here and there and Hassan Whiteside is ailing -- he's a game-time decision tonight.

Dragić on the calf injury: "It's frustrating of course. I want to be here to help the team but this is a part of the game."

The Heat will likely start Beno Udrih in his place. But Miami will miss all of Goran's playmaking ability especially when Wade and Chris Bosh are off the court.
