Arizona Central reported that Phoenix Suns’ backup point guard Goran Dragic cut his foot on a broken glass in his home and had to go to the emergency room, where he received nine stitches to close the wound.
Dragic is averaging over 18 minutes per game on the year in spelling Steve Nash. Recently re-signed Zabian Dowdell, who is on his second 10-day contract with the team, will fill Dragic’s role as the backup point guard. Also look for Grant Hill to get extended time with the second unit and to handle the ball if Gentry sees fit. Jared Dudley may be used as a backup ball handler as well.
Dragic has been having a disappointing season for Phoenix – he has the lowest offensive rating of any player getting regular time in the rotation. His offensive win shares on the year is actually in the negatives. He is shooting less than 30% from deep this year and just 61.1% from the free throw line.
