2020 NBA Finals | Lakers vs. Heat

Goran Dragic (foot) out for Game 5 of The Finals

Goran Dragic has been ruled out for Game 5 of The Finals. Dragic has missed majority of the NBA Finals after suffering a torn left plantar fascia in Game 1.

The Slovenian veteran has been able to put pressure on the foot, but the guard said before Game 4 that dealing with the pain is the most significant factor in his potential return.

Dragic averaged 22.8 points to lead the Heat in their first-round sweep of Indiana in the first round. Butler paced Miami with 23.4 per game when it knocked out top-seeded Milwaukee in the Eastern Conference semifinals and Adebayo scored 21.8 per game in the East finals, making the Heat the first team since the 1999 San Antonio Spurs to reach The Finals with three leading scorers in each of the first three rounds.
