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

Date:

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.
Feb 21 - 1:05 AM

Andre Drummond made all eight of his field goal attempts on Sunday, finishing a tough home loss with 17 points, 14 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

Drummond has developed a nice close-range hook shot and he continues to rack up early-round value for owners who don't mind his FT shooting -- he was 1-of-4 at the line tonight and also committed five turnovers before fouling out in just 29 minutes.
Feb 8 - 9:10 PM

Andre Drummond scored 18 points during a 114-109 loss to the Pacers on Wednesday, adding 16 rebounds, one assist and one steal.

He made 9-of-15 from the field and didn't go to the line tonight. Drummond has at least 14 boards in four of his last five, averaging 12.2 points, 14.0 boards, 2.4 blocks and 0.6 steals. Drummond's shooting percentages still aren't there, but he should improve and get above 50 percent soon.
Feb 4 - 10:09 PM

Andre Drummond double-doubled in a win over the Heat on Tuesday, finishing with 14 points, 14 boards, one assist and two blocks in 34 minutes.

Drummond is usually a lock for a double-double when he avoids foul trouble, and that was the case tonight as he didn't record a single foul until the fourth quarter. Drummond's free throw shooting has been terrible this season, but after going 1-of-16 from the line in his previous five games, he surprisingly hit his only two attempts tonight. The Pistons are suddenly in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs, so Drummond's owners can continue to expect big games like this as the season progresses.
Feb 3 - 11:11 PM

Andre Drummond had 11 points, 16 rebounds, a steal and three blocks on 5-of-11 shooting in Saturday's win over the Rockets.

With Dwight Howard out, Drummond and Greg Monroe had free reign in the paint. Of course, Drummond only hit 1-of-7 free throws, but has now racked up 15 or more boards in four straight home games.
Feb 1 - 12:53 AM

Andre Drummond had anything but a huge night against the hapless Sixers on Wednesday, finishing with just six points, seven rebounds, a steal and a block in an ugly loss.

Drummond picked up four fouls and the Pistons were never really in this game. Greg Monroe was better with 20 points and 11 boards, but he didn't have any blocks in the loss. Philly opened up a big first-quarter league and never looked back, and we'll blame this one on the Pistons playing their fourth game in five nights. They were, as the saying goes, plumb tuckered out.
Jan 28 - 10:53 PM

Andre Drummond had a season-high six blocks in a loss to the Cavaliers on Tuesday, adding 12 points and 17 boards.

It wasn't all great for him, as he shot just 6-of-17 from the field and missed all four of his free throws. Drummond has now gone three games without making a single free throw, going 0-of-9 over that span. Having said that, his owners knew what they were getting into when they drafted him and they probably won't mind as long as keeps scoring, rebounding and blocking shots at a high level. His play should also improve as he develops some chemistry with D.J. Augustin, who has taken over as the starting point guard due to the loss of Brandon Jennings (Achilles) for the season.
Jan 27 - 9:56 PM

Andre Drummond made 7-of-11 shots in 27 minutes vs. Toronto on Sunday, finishing with 14 points, eight boards, one assist and one block.

Drummond has scored 56.0 percent of his baskets off teammate assists, so the loss of Brandon Jennings can't be a good thing for his offense. It's something to keep an eye on going forward, though of course Drummond remains an elite fantasy center even if his scoring takes a small dip.
Jan 25 - 10:18 PM

Andre Drummond missed all four attempts from the foul line during a 101-86 loss to the Bucks on Saturday with 10 points, seven rebounds and one block.

He was actually developing a nice rapport with Brandon Jennings, but he'll have to learn to play with D.J. Augustin more often. That could mean Drummond has to get his shot on his own more often, which suggests his field goal shooting goes south. He'll still be a must-start player and he may see an increase in usage rate.
Jan 24 - 10:30 PM

Andre Drummond stuffed the stat-sheet on Wednesday with 26 points (10-of-14 FGs, 6-of-8 FTs), 17 rebounds, one assist, four steals and three blocks in just 30 minutes.

The 75.0 percent FT shooting is a bonus for fantasy owners, most of whom should be resigned to ignoring the category given Drummond's league-worst weighted FT percentages. He also committed a season-high five turnovers tonight, unusual for a player whose 9-cat value is strengthened by a stingy season average of 1.5 turnovers per game.
Jan 21 - 10:22 PM

Despite scoring 13 points to go with 18 rebounds in Monday's loss to the Hawks, Andre Drummond was benched down the stretch due to his woeful free throw shooting.

He finished the game going 3-of-12 from the line, but he understands why coach Stan Van Gundy had to pull him out. "As an athlete you want to be out there to help your team," Drummond said. "But coach doesn't feel it's the best fit, you have to understand he feels a certain way, that another guy is the right fit for that moment. It's not my decision. I gotta sit there and stay ready. It's what it comes to. I can't get discouraged." While we expect Drummond to be fine, owners didn't draft him for his foul shooing and they can keep rolling him out there for his elite production in boards and blocks.
Jan 21 - 10:00 AM

Andre Drummond made 4-of-15 from the field for eight points with 14 boards, one steal and three blocks in 30 minutes against the 76ers on Saturday.

He had 14 shots at the rim tonight and made only four. Basically, we're not even mad. That's amazing. Movie references aside, it's nice to see Drummond get so many shots and he's getting better at establishing position. His owners can expect him to be better on offense soon, but he won't touch his 62.3 percent from the field from last season.
Jan 17 - 10:33 PM

Andre Drummond struggled defensively but still managed to double-double with 16 points and 16 rebounds, including a game-winning tip with 0.3 seconds to play against the Pacers.

Drummond was used by Roy Hibbert and his energy continues to be an issue. Stan Van Gundy appeared irritated after Wednesday's game and that's probably not going to change after his game-winner. Despite being freed by the Josh Smith trade, his fantasy owners might not be thrilled with his top-100 production over the past 14 games, held down by 51.1 percent field goal shooting and 42.3 percent foul shooting. That's buy low territory, though it could be hard to pull a deal off.
