MANILA, Philippines—Goran Dragic reportedly suffered a torn plantar fascia in his left foot, forcing him to leave the game early in the opener of the NBA Finals between Miami Heat and Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday.

But according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Dragic hasn’t ruled out a return in Game 2 on Saturday  (Manila time) as the Heat’s star guard “has been able to put pressure” on his injured foot.
