Miami Heat

Report: Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic listed as active for Game 6 of NBA Finals

The Miami Heat could be receiving a boost as they look to force a seventh game with the Los Angeles Lakers in the 2020 NBA Finals.

According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, guard Goran Dragic is listed as active for Game 6 after missing Games 2 through 5 with a torn plantar fascia.

Dragic, who was limited to just 15 minutes in Game 1 of the Finals before exiting with the injury, has been one of the Heat's biggest contributors throughout the 2020 postseason. Through the first three rounds, he posted averages of 20.9 points, 4.7 assists and 4.2 rebounds per game.

Whether or not Dragic will actually take the floor is still unkown - it is worth noting that Miami played just seven players in Game 6, as pointed out by CBS Sports' Samuel H. Quinn. Dragic being active doesn't ensure that he will play but does allow him to be in uniform and more engaged with the team throughout the game.

While inactive, Dragic was in a mask and team gear and could not be as involved in huddles and gameplanning. Ultimately, Dragic being in uniform means there is a chance he could take the floor in Game 6 but whether or not it is a realistic chance remains to be seen.
