Dragic Struggling; Trying to Find Role in Miami

Basketball Insiders

Coming off three straight losses that took them from first in the Eastern Conference to peak frustration in less than a week, it probably wasn’t ideal to have Goran Dragic, Miami’s latest $85 million investment, turning down open layups, turning down open 3-pointers, turning the ball over and turning makeable shots into hopeless clankers.

Before the Heat’s recent two-game road trip — the team left the offense behind in Miami — Dragic had a three-game stretch in which he averaged 17 points on 59 percent shooting with eight assists. But Sunday, back in the comforts of home, Dragic’s confidence was clearly shot. And his teammates were once again offering their style of encouragement.

Sources: Brandon Ingram Out Three-to-Four Months after Thoracic Outlet Decompression Surgery

Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram underwent thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm Saturday, and sources told ESPN he is expected to make a full recovery in three to four months.

Ingram was shut down last week after a medical examination of his sore right shoulder revealed deep venous thrombosis — a condition caused by a blood clot. That clot was removed and Saturday’s procedure assured better blood flow in Ingram’s upper body.

“This couldn’t have been a better set of facts for a clot,” Ingram’s agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports Management, told ESPN.
