WATCH: Goran Dragic Can't Stop Getting Hit in the Face

After this season, Miami Heat point guard Goran Dragic will need significant dental work, maybe even facial reconstruction.

The Miami Heat are deadlocked in a 2-2 Eastern Conference Semifinals tie with the Toronto Raptors, but Heat point guard Goran Dragic's face is currently winless for the entire 2015-2016 campaign.

Last night, Dragic's face was struck for the third time in less than a month when Toronto Raptors guard DeMar DeRozan dribbled the basketball directly off his foot and squarely into Dragic's dome. Then, in a cruel twist of fate, the ricochet landed back in the hands of the Raptors to continue their possession.

This was just the latest face-smashing incident in a season full of them for Dragic. In Game 2 against the Raptors, he tried to take a charge as DeRozan drove toward him down the lane. For his efforts, he took a hard elbow to the chin, causing a tooth to cut through his lip, an injury that required multiple stitches.

Just before the Playoffs, Dragic actually lost a tooth when Detroit Pistons guard Spencer Dinwiddie raked him across the face with his arm while guarding him on the perimeter. Add that to a December game against the Atlanta Hawks in which Dragic took an elbow to the face while trying to guard Al Horford, resulting in another lost tooth and a whole lotta blood.

Goran Dragic may need to spend the entire off-season in a facial healing clinic.
