Goran Dragic Injury: Updates on Suns PG's Ankle, Likely Return Date
Phoenix Suns guard Goran Dragic left the team's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday, Nov. 3, with a left ankle sprain and did not return.
The team's Twitter account revealed the news:
Paul Coro of AZCentral.com provides a statement from Goran Dragic discussing his ankle injury:
It’s frustrating, but I have to be strong, Dragic said. Maybe it’s because I played the whole summer (for Slovenia’s national team), but I feel good. Maybe I just don’t have luck. I’ll be strong, work on this and come back stronger.
Dragic's injury comes at an unfortunate time for the 27-year-old, who injured his head in a collision with teammate P.J. Tucker two nights prior. Despite the season being less than a week old, the five-year pro has left two of his team's three games with injury.
If the Suns have to go without Dragic for an extended period of time, it would be a major blow for a team that entered the season with noticeably low expectations.
Dragic opened up his 2013-14 campaign with tons of promise, amassing 26 points, nine assists and six rebounds and having plenty of success. He's begun forming a potentially dangerous backcourt with new addition Eric Bledsoe, serving as one key strength on an otherwise pedestrian roster.
Phoenix started off the year undefeated at 2-0, but it will be difficult to keep the pace if its starting point guard misses any extended time.
