Andre Drummond hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points on Monday, but also had 16 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in a win over the Kings.
Drummond wasn't as great as he has been tonight and we were all hoping for more against Willie Cauley-Stein and company, but he at least came through with big boards and blocks in this one. Look for Drummond to bounce back on Tuesday against the Suns. Mar 20 - 12:36 AM

Andre Drummond scored 18 points with 22 rebounds and two blocks in 37 minutes during a 100-87 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

He keeps putting up huge numbers and the Pistons keep losing games. In the last 10 games, Drummond and Blake Griffin have just a -7.4 net rating together, but Drummond without Blake has been a horrible -20.8. This season can't end soon enough for the Pistons, but not for Drummond's fantasy owners.
Mar 18 - 12:50 AM

Andre Drummond scored 21 points with 17 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 34 minutes during a 120-113 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday.

The Pistons have won just two games since the All-Star break with wins over the Bulls and Bucks. They have almost no chance to make the playoffs and it's probably time to start wondering if coach Stan Van Gundy is on the hot seat. Worse yet, Drummond broke out this year in his non-double-double stats, so that makes SVG look even worse.
Mar 16 - 12:19 AM

Andre Drummond grabbed a game-high 21 rebounds (seven offensive) on Wednesday, with 10 points, two assists and two blocks in 37 minutes.

After tonight's tough home loss in overtime, Detroit has won just two of their past dozen games. They're still No. 9 in the East, but sit 5.0 games behind the Heat with 17 games left in their regular season. It's not a good situation in reality, but should give Detroit just enough incentive to prevent any precautionary DNPs for their key veterans.
Mar 8 - 12:04 AM

Andre Drummond scored 22 points with 18 rebounds, two assists, four steals and two blocks during a 105-96 loss to the Heat on Saturday.

He had a very un-Drummond line on Friday with just 10 points, 15 boards and no defensive stats, which is even more surprising against a team like the Magic. The Pistons are not playing good ball right now with just a 1-5 record since the break, but the schedule hasn't been nice to them with games against the Heat, Raptors, Bucks and Celtics. Their schedule gets even tougher over the next two weeks, including games at Cleveland, at Utah, at Denver, at Portland and a game at home against the Raptors. Things aren't looking good for them to make the playoffs, but Drummond's fantasy owners shouldn't worry too much about that.
Mar 3 - 10:20 PM

Andre Drummond hit 8-of-18 shots for 18 points, 18 rebounds, four steals and three blocks in Monday's ugly loss to the Raptors.

He was great, but his teammates didn't show up for what turned out to be a garbage-time special given the lopsided 123-94 score. Drummond and Blake Griffin should continue to play for the Pistons as they fight to sneak into the playoffs. They currently sit just 3.0 games out of the No. 8 seed in the East.
Feb 26 - 10:36 PM

Andre Drummond posted a 14-point, 14-rebound double-double on Sunday, to go with one assist, one steal, one block and one turnover in 32 minutes.

Drummond was solid, but Detroit's bench was particularly awful in this one, which resulted in Charlotte going on huge runs whenever the starters left the floor. As a side note, Drummond’s assist numbers have seen a major dip since Blake Griffin's arrival, and with Griffin being the more talented playmaker, that trend will likely continue.
Feb 25 - 3:57 PM

Andre Drummond scored 15 points with 17 rebounds and three blocks in 31 minutes during a 110-98 loss to the Celtics on Friday.

The Celtics did a fine job of neutralizing Drummond from getting the ball down low while they kept Blake away from the hoop, as well. Griffin finished with 17 points, four rebounds, one steal, six turnovers and two 3-pointers over his 35 minutes. The Pistons are now 2.0 games behind the Heat at the completion of their game, so they could be 2.5 back with a Miami win in New Orleans. They have some work to do.
Feb 23 - 9:29 PM

Andre Drummond hit 4-of-12 shots and 5-of-8 free throws for 13 points, 21 rebounds, a steal and a block in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

Drummond has been a rebounding monster for a few weeks now, as this was his fifth 20-rebound game over his last 11 played. The Pelicans actually started Emeka Okafor to help deal with Drummond and Blake Griffin, and the plan appears to have worked since New Orleans got the 118-103 win. The Pistons have finally cooled off, losing three straight after winning five straight after acquiring Griffin.
Feb 12 - 9:38 PM

Andre Drummond (ankle) hauled in a season-high 27 rebounds during Wednesday's home win, adding 17 points, three steals, three blocks and two assists in 36 minutes.

Drummond was dealing with a minor injury but his status was never truly in doubt, and coach Stan Van Gundy said before tip-off that Drummond was "fine." The reigning Eastern Conference player of the week will also be playing in his second All-Star game this month, and he's been a nice surprise for owners who gambled on draft day. The only smirch on his line tonight was percentages -- he went 5-of-17 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line.
Feb 7 - 10:24 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Andre Drummond (ankle) is "fine" for Wednesday against the Nets.

He did have a mild ankle tweak on Monday, but he should be all set in a great matchup. Drummond and Blake Griffin have been great together with their starting unit posting an elite +15.9 net rating together. He's an option in DFS.
Feb 7 - 5:38 PM

Andre Drummond (ankle), Luke Kennard (foot) and Dwight Buycks (illness) are not on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Drummond tweaked his ankle on Monday, but played through it, and it looks like he'll be out there for tonight's game. Kennard returned from a one-game absence on Monday without an issue, and Buycks should be back out there following a two-game stint on the sidelines. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Feb 7 - 12:32 PM

Andre Drummond sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter of Monday's blowout win over the Blazers, stayed in the game to shoot free throws, and left the game shortly thereafter.

He left under his own power, stayed on the bench and didn't even take off his shoe, so it's possible he might have re-entered the game had it not been a blowout. We're going to put him on the injury report, but if we had to guess, it looks like he might be fine to play on Wednesday against the Nets, assuming it doesn't swell badly overnight. Drummond and Blake Griffin look fantastic together and the big man hit 7-of-12 shots for 17 points, 17 rebounds, five assists, a steal and three blocks in 34 minutes, and owners should check back on his status on Tuesday and Wednesday. If Drummond does miss that game Anthony Tolliver would likely be in line for another big night.
Feb 5 - 9:19 PM

Andre Drummond had one of the best stat lines of the season during a 111-107 win over the Heat on Saturday, scoring 23 points with 20 boards, one assist, four steals and four blocks in 36 minutes.

That makes him the first player to drop a 20-20 with at least four blocks and four steals since 1989. Drummond bounced back in a big way after he did not close on Thursday, and he cleaned up on the offensive glass with seven on that end. The drop in assists is going to be there for Drummond, but his owners can forgive him with monster stat lines like this one.
Feb 3 - 10:35 PM

Andre Drummond scored 14 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 28 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

We did get a surprise down the stretch with Anthony Tolliver closing over Drummond for basically the last 3:09 -- Drummond was in for a couple rebounding chances on free throws. Perhaps most notably, Drummond was not on the court for the biggest defensive play of the game when the Grizzlies had the ball down one with 20 seconds left. He did look comfortable with Blake Griffin and even had a dunk off a Griffin dime, but Drummond may take a hit with Blake around. Perhaps the craziest stat on Drummond's adjustment is how 58 percent of his assists went to Tobias Harris or Avery Bradley before the trade. To be clear, Drummond is still going to be a monster.
