ATLANTA — Heat point guard Goran Dragic sat out Miami’s 123-118 loss at Atlanta due to persistent pain in his right foot.
Dragic was not in uniform Saturday night after a cortisone shot earlier in the week did not provide sufficient pain relief.
Forward Justise Winslow made his first start of the season. He had had 15 points, 10 rebounds and eight assists. Rodney McGruder moved from forward to join Josh Richardson in the backcourt.
Dragic’s status for Monday’s game at Detroit is not known. He is second on the team with 17.7 points per game.
