Heat's Goran Dragic: Needs stitches on lip Monday

Dragic required two stitches on his lip following Monday's 27-point performance against the Celtics, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.

Dragic came into Monday with an elbow injury but played through it, and the laceration on his lip, for an impressive 38 minutes as Miami's backcourt continues to be depleted by injuries with Tyler Johnson (mouth) and Dion Waiters (groin) each sitting out against Boston. Despite the continued injury issues with his elbow and lip, Dragic could seemingly be in line for big minutes yet again Wednesday in Denver.
