Two of the team’s more iconic players, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, no longer are around. Dragic, along with Udonis Haslem and Hassan Whiteside, will be asked to lead a team with much more youth than before. “It’s not the prettiest situation right now,” Dragic said Monday from the Heat’s media day. “Still, we’re professionals, we need to clear our heads and have more focus, one goal in our heads, to get better as a team, to get to know each other and try to build that chemistry we’re going to need for the season.”

“I need to step in, be more vocal, be a leader,” he said. “We still got UD, we got Beno (Udrih), Josh McRoberts. We still got some experienced guys that I think is a good mix with the young guys. “CB is not with us, D-Wade is not with us. It’s a lot of minutes. Somebody is going to have to take those minutes. I’m confident, Tyler (Johnson) he’s going to step in. Josh Richardson, (Justise) Winslow had and unbelievable rookie season. I think we’ll be okay.”
The Heat released a statement Friday afternoon stating that the team is unable to clear Chris Bosh to return to basketball activities after conducting his physical this week. Bosh, 32, missed the second half of the past two seasons after developing blood clots. “I was just disappointed and sad,” Dragic said of what he felt when he heard the news about Bosh. “It was a lot of emotions involved, but it is what it is. I’m here to work, I’m here to play basketball. Of course, we wish him all the best.”
