Player Notes

  • Spoelstra praises Goran Dragic
    Heat coach Erik Spoelstra praised Goran Dragic for his strong play after Saturday's win over the Bucks.

    Advice: "Goran has had a career year; this is not something that’s happening right now," Spoelstra said. "He’s been doing this all season. He’s such a conscientious teammate. We have all these moving parts and he’s trying to make sure everyone is comfortable. He knows he has to be aggressive for us and generate good looks." Dragic's name has been tossed around the rumor mill all season with the Heat looking to rebuild, but the Heat are only going to move him if they can get a considerable package in return -- the Heat have already turned down a offer of Nikola Vucevic and a future first-round pick from Orlando.

  • Dion Waiters working on his finishing at rim
    Dion Waiters said he's working on his ability to finish around the rim.

    Advice: "Coaches told me to be aggressive, be me, do what I do best, get to the rack," Waiters said. "I get there with the best of them. It’s about me finishing when I get there. I work on it every day." That's arguably one of Waiters' biggest weaknesses, but he said Goran Dragic gave him some tips on how to improve including "being physical, lowering my shoulder." Tyler Johnson (shoulder) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors, so Waiters could be busy once again after scoring 33 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and five 3-pointers on Saturday vs. the Bucks.

  • Tyler Johnson optimistic about his shoulder
    Tyler Johnson said he's optimistic about his left shoulder because he was able to lift weights on Sunday.

    Advice: "It’s not the same pain as it was last year," Johnson said Sunday when asked if his latest injury is connected to his past shoulder issues. "It’s just like a strain. Obviously it was a little bit more concerning at the time because it was the left shoulder. But coming in today, it feels a lot better. The swelling went down a lot. So yeah, I’m optimistic about it." He missed the final 35 games of the 2015-16 season after having rotator cuff surgery on his left shoulder, but the Heat are calling him day-to-day for now and he's questionable for Monday's game vs. the Warriors. If Johnson doesn't show any progress on Monday, Johnson could undergo an MRI. Expect Dion Waiters to benefit the most if Johnson misses additional time. Rotoworld.com 52 minutes ago
