Andre Drummond had a tough day on Monday, hitting 1-of-7 shots for three points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in 34 minutes.
The scoring was a disaster, but he helped make up for it with the assists and steals. He was in some foul trouble and just didn't have it today, which was surprising considering he'd been playing well and had 21 points, 15 boards and three blocks on Saturday. It speaks to what kind of season Dwight Howard is having for the Hornets, as he simply dominated Drummond in this one. Jan 15 - 2:59 PM

Andre Drummond had another big all-around game on Saturday with 21 points (8-of-13 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 15 rebounds, four assists, three blocks, two steals and one turnover.

Drummond committed just one turnover and two fouls in 34 minutes, and it's safe to conclude that his rib injury is no longer a concern. He missed one game on Jan. 6, but in the three games since he's averaging a stellar 19.7 points, 16.3 boards, 4.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 blocks. That was against a trio of vulnerable frontcourts, though, and he'll draw a tougher matchup vs. Dwight Howard on Monday. Trainers did look at Drummond's right foot in the second quarter tonight but he looked fine after halftime, so we'll leave him off the injury report.
Jan 13 - 11:47 PM

Andre Drummond punished the Nets in the paint on Wednesday, racking up 22 points, 20 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes.

Drummond did whatever he wanted vs. starting Tyler Zeller and backups Jarrett Allen and Jahlil Okafor tonight, but that's not a big surprise. The Nets are giving up the third-most rebounds to opposing frontcourts (only the Kings and Lakers yield more), and this was a perfect matchup for Drummond. He hit 9-of-15 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs, and should also fare well vs. Robin Lopez and the Bulls on Saturday.
Jan 11 - 12:05 AM

Andre Drummond (sore ribs) finished Monday's tough road loss with 16 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 39 minutes.

The rib injury is a question of pain tolerance for Drummond, but he looked great in heavy minutes during a very physical game tonight. Five of his boards came on the offensive glass, and the only negatives were four turnovers and an 0-of-2 mark at the FT line. He should be ready to go vs. the Nets on Wednesday, but owners should still confirm his status prior to tip-off.
Jan 9 - 12:00 AM

Stan Van Gundy said that Andre Drummond (ribs) will be in the starting lineup for Monday's matchup with the Pelicans.

Drummond was listed as probable, a full participant at shootaround and also posted on his Instagram account, "feel good to be back!" so owners in season-long settings can deploy him with confidence. Van Gundy said that Ish Smith, Avery Bradley and Tobias Harris will join Drummond in the starting five tonight, but he wouldn't commit to a fifth starter, which suggests Anthony Tolliver could replace Reggie Bullock in the starting unit to better matchup with New Orleans' bully ball lineup.

Andre Drummond (ribs) is probable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Drummond went through shootaround and is on track to start on Monday barring a setback in warmups. Assuming Drummond plays, Boban Marjanovic and Eric Moreland will lose pretty much all of their streaming appeal. Drummond is a bit risky in DFS because this is an injury that is easy to aggravate like we saw on Friday, but season-long owners can pencil him into lineups.

Andre Drummond (ribs) is listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Pelicans.

Drummond played through his sore ribs on Friday vs. the 76ers, but he re-aggravated the injury and was held out on Saturday vs. Houston. It's unclear if the Pistons will practice on Sunday, but the latest his owners can expect an update is after the Monday morning shootaround. With the Pelicans starting Anthony Davis and DeMarcus Cousins, Eric Moreland and Boban Marjanovic should both get some run if Drummond can't go.

Jan 7 - 12:40 PM

Andre Drummond (ribs) will not play against the Rockets on Saturday and Eric Moreland will start.

He can't shake this rib injury and will miss his second game in the last three. The Rockets are going to run and space the floor a lot, so that explains the move to start Eric Moreland. We should still see some Boban Marjanovic, but it wouldn't be a surprise to see Anthony Tolliver play some center.
Jan 6 - 6:54 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said "we'll see" on Andre Drummond's availability against the Rockets on Saturday.

No surprise here after we saw J.J. Redick's shoulder hit Drummond square in the ribs on Friday night. It'll be a pain tolerance thing for Drummond, so he's almost certainly going to be a game-time call. If he's out, it's Boban Marjanovic time.
Jan 6 - 5:30 PM

Andre Drummond returned to action after missing Wednesday, finishing with 10 points, eight rebounds, five assists and one steal in 29 minutes against the 76ers on Friday.

It was very clear he was dealing with his rib injury. On the first possession of the second quarter, J.J. Redick's shoulder hit Drummond in his ribs and Drummond went to the ground in pain. He did stay in the game, but it was certainly affecting him. He's on a back-to-back set for Saturday and the Pistons won't be shooting around, so his owners may just want to make sure he's good to go against Houston. It sounds like he's OK, though.
Jan 5 - 9:25 PM

Andre Drummond (rib) will play against the 76ers on Friday.

He was going to be a game-time call, but he gets the green light with 90 minutes to spare. Drummond's main issue will be pain tolerance, so expect for the Pistons to protect him with something. This could mean Boban Marjanovic moves out of the rotation, or maybe Boban does get the backup minutes after an impressive Wednesday.
Jan 5 - 5:34 PM

Andre Drummond (ribs) remains a game-time decision for Friday's contest vs. the Sixers.

The Pistons did not hold a shootaround on Friday, so we will have to wait until coach Stan Van Gundy speaks to the media at approximately 5:30 pm for an update on Drummond's status. On Thursday, Van Gundy said Drummond's return would depend on his pain tolerance. If Drummond is unable to play on Friday, Boban Marjanovic would likely draw another start at center.
Jan 5 - 12:12 PM

Andre Drummond (rib contusion) did not practice on Thursday and is a game-time call for Friday's game vs. the 76ers.

Coach Stan Van Gundy said the injury is about pain tolerance, so it doesn't sound like anything serious. Drummond and Joel Embiid do have a budding rivalry, so he will have some extra motivation to play. If he can't go, Boban Marjanovic will be a solid streaming option again after impressing on Wednesday with 15 points, nine rebounds, three assists and one block in 22 minutes.
Jan 4 - 12:30 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Andre Drummond's (rib contusion) injury is about pain tolerance.

SVG said no doctor said he couldn't play, so it sounds like everything is structurally sound. Drummond takes a lot of contact on the block, so his right side will get some contact more often than not when he is in the paint. It doesn't sound like he'll be out for too long, but adding Boban Marjanovic in deeper leagues makes sense until Drummond is active.
Jan 3 - 10:07 PM

Andre Drummond (rib contusion) will not play against the Heat on Wednesday.

He gets ruled out about an hour before tip time here and there aren't many details on his injury going forward. For tonight, it should be Boban Marjanovic time at least for 15-20 minutes while Eric Moreland and maybe even Anthony Tolliver pick up some extra minutes. Fire up Boban as a streamer and in DFS.
