We told you about Goran Dragic suffering a nasty left ankle sprain Sunday night when he was on the break and tried a Euro step move that went bad. It looked like he could miss some time.
Two games, according to Paul Coro at the Arizona Republic.
“I’m guessing he probably won’t go these couple of games,” Suns coach Jeff Hornacek said of the road trip’s final stops against New Orleans on Tuesday night and San Antonio on Wednesday night.
Dragic sprained the same ankle in the preseason, and once you sprain an ankle it’s easier to re-injure it.

So expect the Suns to be careful with him here. It’s a long season.
In the short term, expect the Eric Bledsoe show with a side of Gerald Green.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Stephen Curry is enjoying going against Klay Thompson. Maybe a little too much.
In the first half, Curry was matched up on his Warriors’ backcourt mate and enjoyed that Thompson missed the shot.
Then in the fourth quarter, with the game tight, Curry drained the contested three and drew the and-1 on Thompson — and did a little taunting.
That’s some All-Star fun.
CHARLOTTE – Stephen Curry bounced this so high!
I suppose it helps that Giannis Antetokounmpo has such ridiculous reach.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Maybe Dirk Nowitzki shouldn’t retire after this season.
Added to the All-Star Game by Commissioner Adam Silver (along with Dwyane Wade) in what is expected to be the final season for the future Hall of Famer, the greatest shooting big man of all time showed he still has the touch. Entering the game midway through the first quarter, Nowitzki proceeded to quickly splash a couple of threes.
And he was not done yet.
Nowitzki never officially said he was retiring….
CHARLOTTE – It’s an All-Star game, but you still can’t do that. A free throw that doesn’t hit rim is a violation, and Giannis Antetokounmpo clearly crossed the line early, too:
He was clearly going for levity, and at least he accomplished that.
