Goran Dragic Uses Emoticons, Will Play Against Dallas Tuesday

With Kyle Lowry possibly out for the season, the Houston Rockets can ill afford for PG Goran Dragic to miss any time as they fight for a playoff spot in the Western Conference.


Dragic sprained his ankle in an OT win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday, but he took to Twitter on Tuesday morning to tell the world he would be OK:


Regardless of how he chooses to express himself on the interwebs :) :) :), Dragic is an impressive young player who should be able to replace most of Lowry's production in the back-court.


For the season, his per-36 minute averages are 14.4 points on 45% shooting with 7 assists and 3.5 turnovers. That is with a usage rating of only 20.9, which should go up significantly now that he is not sharing the point with Lowry.
