VIDEO: Goran Dragic makes return from injury, scores first bucket for Heat since Game 1

Heat, Goran Dragic

Following an ankle injury that was initially deemed to take him out of the remainder of the NBA Finals, Miami Heat guard Goran Dragic has made his return in Game 6. More amazingly, he scored his first points of the series since Game 1.

Checking into the game with 1:09 left to go in the first quarter, Dragic looked to make his presence felt right off the bat.

It took him until the second quarter to score his first points though, receiving a handoff from Bam Adebayo as he drove into the lane to score via a layup.

Driving into the paint, Goran Dragic appeared to be doing better after suffering from a torn plantar fascia.

While many though that Dragic was already out of the series — even being listed as doubtful for the Heat in Game 6 — he was then upgraded to active an hour before tip-off of the crucial showdown.
