Heat PG Goran Dragic Couldn’t Play in Today’s Game For Obvious Reasons
Miami Heat PG Goran Dragic took a blow to the face during the third quarter of Saturday night’s 104-89 win over the Toronto Raptors. The injury occurred when he attempted to take a charge on a euro-stepping Cory Joseph, and received a sharp elbow in the right eye and a blocking foul for his troubles.
This is how he looked on Saturday.
The Miami Heat lost on Sunday to the Indiana Pacers and Dragic was held out because his eye didn’t get any better during the 24 hours between games. In fact, it got worse, as it was completely closed.
“The point guard currently can’t see out of the eye, he told the Sun Sentinel’s Ira Winderman. “He really wanted to be out there to play but the smart thing for us to do is to sit him,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra added.”

I’m not sure what’s going on with that eye, but whatever it is, it needs to be dealt with before it lays eggs and multiplies.
