Heat guard Goran Dragic out 2 months after knee surgery

Goran Dragic’s absence will continue well into 2019.

The Heat guard underwent successful arthroscopic surgery Wednesday on his right knee and is expected to be out until approximately the NBA All-Star break, the team announced.

Dragic has missed 12 of the last 14 games with a swollen right knee despite having it drained earlier this month.

Dragic, 32, is averaging 15.3 points, 4.9 assists and 3.7 rebounds in 14 games this season. He earned his first All-Star selection last year and has two seasons remaining on his contract, which includes a player option for 2019-20.

The Heat (13-16) are next slated to host the Rockets (15-14) at 8 p.m. ET Thursday.
