Dragic has missed the last four games.

NBA: Atlanta Hawks at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

A year ago, Goran Dragic made his first All-Star appearance (albeit after a couple injury replacement announcements) as the leader of a scrappy Miami Heat team fighting for playoff positioning. He’s missed the last four games, and he won’t be back for Miami’s home game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Tomorrow’s game marks the start of a four-game homestand, an important one for Miami (unless, of course, they hope to tank). Miami has lost their last five home games.

The Heat have gone 2-5 in games that Dragic has missed and have a 7-12 record overall. Dragic has lately battled a right knee injury, and he had his knee drained a week ago.

Tyler Johnson will miss his fourth consecutive game with a right hamstring injury tomorrow.
