Dragic decides to give it a try with sore ankle against New Orleans

  • Print

PHOENIX - With his injured right ankle heavily taped, Goran Dragic decided to play when the Suns met the New Orleans Pelicans on Friday night.

Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek had said it would be a game-time decision whether Dragic would play.

And after the morning shootaround, Dragic did not sound optimistic. The Phoenix playmaker said his injured right ankle still is quite sore and he needs to be at 100 per cent to play the way he needs to play.

Dragic sprained his ankle in the Suns' loss to Houston on Sunday night. He sat out Tuesday night's 109-86 loss at Utah, Phoenix's most one-sided loss of the season.

Dragic says he's sprained the ankle four or five times this season and this is the worst one.

He says it's hard to sit out, though, with the team on a three-game losing streak and in a tough fight to stay in the playoff hunt.
