Goran Dragic (back) ruled out for Heat Thursday
Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic (back) will not play Thursday versus the Portland Trail Blazers.
Dragic will miss a third straight game and the Heat will also be without Jimmy Butler (stomach illness) for the front end of their back-to-back. Kendrick Nunn should remain more involved after scoring 25 points with 5 triples last game. Tyler Herro is also in line for more work and a potential start. Gabe Vincent and Max Strus may see minutes as well.
Nunn is averaging 27.5 FanDuel points per game without Dragic this season, compared to 21.1 when Dragic is active, and he has a salary of $5,500 on Thursday's five-game slate. Herro has a salary of $5,200 and is averaging an additional 4.7 FanDuel points per game without Dragic.
