Andre Drummond took advantage of Miami's injury woes to finish Sunday's road loss with a career-high 32 points (14-of-17 FGs, 4-of-7 FTs), 14 rebounds, two assists, one steal, two blocks and zero turnovers.
Hassan Whiteside (hand) and Chris Andersen (calf) were both out for Miami, giving Drummond a delectable matchup vs. Udonis Haslem at center. He took full advantage of the matchup, becoming the 10th player since 2010 to score 32+ points while shooting at least 82.0 percent from the field -- Ersan Ilyasova achieved the same feat during his 34-point outburst on Thursday. Greg Monroe (knee) doesn't have a clear return date so Drummond will continue to gorge himself in the Pistons' frontcourt. Mar 29 - 8:48 PM

Date:

The Pistons beat the Raptors on Tuesday, 108-104, aided by Andre Drummond's massive evening -- he had 21 points, 18 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block without any turnovers in 33 minutes.

The bad news is that he shot 8-of-21 from the field and 5-of-10 from the free throw line. The 21 shots were the second-most of the season for Drummond, who has stepped up with Greg Monroe (knee) on the sidelines over the Pistons' past four games.
Mar 24 - 10:41 PM

Andre Drummond scored 18 points and pulled down 22 boards in Sunday's overtime win vs. the Celtics.

He also added two assists and four blocks on the night, and the only complaint about his line was the fact that he shot just 2-of-11 from the free throw line. Drummond wasn't even a lock to play at all this week due to a concussion he suffered on Mar. 14, so his owners have to be thrilled about the big man's production. If Drummond ever improves his free throw shooting, his ceiling would be insane.
Mar 22 - 8:58 PM

Andre Drummond's recent concussion didn't limit him on Tuesday, as he recorded 16 points, 16 rebounds, two steals and five blocks in a winning effort vs. Memphis.

Greg Monroe's absence shifted a heavy burden onto Drummond, who added one assist and knocked down 4-of-6 free throws in the Pistons' much-needed win. Fantasy owners couldn't have asked for more, as Drummond was fortunate to even be cleared for action tonight.

Andre Drummond (concussion) will play against Grizzlies on Tuesday

Drummond was able to quickly clear the NBA's concussion protocol and should be inserted into all fantasy lineups for Tuesday. There's a good chance that Marc Gasol will sit on the second game of a back-to-back, so Drummond should have a relatively easy matchup against the Grizzlies.
Mar 17 - 11:33 AM

Andre Drummond cleared the NBA's concussion protocol and will play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

He suffered the concussion on Saturday and this might be one of the fastest times a player has ever cleared the concussion protocol since the NBA implemented it. The Pistons have been playing horrible basketball and have lost 10 in a row, moving them up to the No. 7 spot in the lottery. He should be good to go against the frontcourt tandem of Zach Randolph and Marc Gasol -- they might rest on a road back-to-back game, by the way. Drummond appears to be safe to start in all leagues.
Mar 16 - 2:05 PM

Andre Drummond suffered a concussion during Saturday's game vs. the Jazz and he will not return.

Drummond will now have to undergo the league's protocol for concussion testing, and he should be considered highly doubtful to play vs. the Grizzlies on Tuesday. Greg Monroe will likely be the primary beneficiary of this news, while Anthony Tolliver and Joel Anthony would likely see an uptick in minutes as well. We will provide another update on Drummond's status as soon as we know more.

Andre Drummond went off for 22 points, a career-high 27 rebounds, two steals and two blocks on 11-of-25 shooting in Wednesday's loss to the Warriors.

The fact the Pistons lost when Drummond played so well, and Stephen Curry played so poorly, speaks to just how good the Warriors are. Greg Monroe added 20 points, eight boards, a steal and two blocks, and the Pistons attempted 88 two-pointers tonight. That's the highest number of attempts from inside the arc in a non-OT game since 1993, which is the same year Doggystyle, Midnight Marauders & 36 Chambers came out. Thanks to Rotoworld's Mike Gallagher for that tidbit. Drummond also had an amazing 17 offensive boards, which has only been done three times since 1986 (Dennis Rodman, Jayson Williams and Charles Oakley).
Mar 12 - 1:51 AM

Andre Drummond quickly recovered after Sunday's sluggish performance, posting 14 points, 21 rebounds, one steal, two blocks and only one turnover vs. L.A. on Tuesday.

Drummond made 7-of-11 shots in another impressive performance, and his fantasy owners will be relieved to note that he attempted zero free throws. He and Greg Monroe combined for 30 boards but the Pistons as a team were out-gunned 41-46 on the glass, with no other Detroit player grabbing more than two rebounds.
Mar 11 - 1:09 AM

Andre Drummond picked up a pair of quick fouls on Sunday, finishing a home loss vs. Charlotte with 16 points, five rebounds and two blocks in just 24 minutes of action.

Drummond continues to roll along with stellar numbers over his past five games -- 14.4 points, 14.6 rebounds and 2.8 blocks -- tainted only by his horrific 39.0 percent FT shooting. DeAndre Jordan and Dwight Howard are the only players with more damaging FT totals than Drummond, but he remains a top-20 player with FTs out of the equation.
Mar 8 - 9:04 PM

Andre Drummond had a mixed night in Friday's loss to the Rockets, grabbing 21 rebounds with two blocks, but only hitting 4-of-16 shots from the field while missing all three of his free throws.

Drummond was a field goal percentage machine last season and that meant owners could legitimately get excited about him without calling him a punter's play. With just top-100 value on the season this year, he's most definitely a punter's play and with that comes extra restrictions on owners -- and he has most definitely swung and missed on all of the preseason hype.
Mar 7 - 1:15 AM

Andre Drummond scored 13 points with 18 boards, one assist, one steal and six blocks against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It's not a tough argument to make that the Reggie Jackson trade is helping Drummond. In his last five with RJ, Drummond averaged 16.4 points, 13.6 boards, 2.6 blocks and 0.4 steals on 63.2 percent from the field. He's still going to be abysmal from the line, but Drummond is back to being a beast.
Mar 5 - 1:57 AM

Andre Drummond scored 21 points with 15 boards, one assist and four blocks against the Knicks on Friday.

Lou Amundson gave him the business tonight, so this big line is misleading from a reality standpoint. However, Drummond's numbers since the break are pretty good, averaging 18.5 points, 15.3 boards 1.5 blocks and 0.5 steals on 59.3 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from the line. He's finally rollin' on the stat sheet.
Feb 28 - 12:27 AM

Andre Drummond piled up 18 points (8-of-11 FGs, 2-of-4 FTs) during Sunday's home win, adding 16 rebounds for his 31st double-double of the season.

Drummond remains an early-round value if you're willing to ignore his 40.1 percent FT shooting. His rebound rate of 23.6 percent trails only Hassan Whiteside, his 13.0 boards per game trails only DeAndre Jordan, and he ranks sixth in the league with 95 blocks on the season. Not too shabby.
Feb 22 - 6:52 PM

Andre Drummond made 7-of-18 from the field and 4-of-13 from the line for 18 points against the Bulls on Friday with 20 boards, one assist and one steal.

The Bulls did the Hack-A-Dre late in the game, which indicated how much better the Detroit offense looked, especially since they started a rookie point guard. As for Drummond, he didn't have great chemistry with D.J. Augustin, but Reggie Jackson will likely take a couple shots away from him. He'll be fine and maybe his field goal percentage can finally start going up -- it's at just 49.7 percent right now.
