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.

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.

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.
Jan 16 - 10:10 PM

Andre Drummond was a no-show against the Pelicans on Wednesday with two points, two boards and two blocks in 22 minutes.

He wasn't really in bad foul trouble and the Pistons were just destroyed on their own floor tonight. Drummond has these disappearing acts from time to time, but they've haven't happened as much since the Josh Smith deal. His fantasy owners don't need to worry.
Jan 14 - 10:17 PM

Andre Drummond labored through an illness in Friday's loss to the Hawks, finishing with just four points, five boards and two steals in 17 minutes.

Drummond didn't look like himself and he probably shouldn't have played if it was that bad. We'll let you know if he's in danger of missing any games.
Jan 10 - 1:10 AM

Andre Drummond hit just 3-of-11 shots for six points, but added 19 rebounds, a steal and a block in Wednesday's win over the Mavericks.

Drummond is averaging 13 points, 11.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks on the second game of back-to-backs this season, so his low scoring doesn't come as a huge surprise. He was also hurt by the monster 27 & 18 line that Greg Monroe put up tonight, but Drummond's line would have looked a lot better if he had made some shots. The Pistons have now won seven straight games and it's not a coincidence that they got rid of Josh Smith...seven games ago.
Jan 8 - 12:48 AM

The Spurs had no answer for Andre Drummond on Tuesday, as he piled up 20 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during the Pistons' wild road victory.

He could have had an even gaudier line if the Pistons' guards threw more accurate alley-oop passes, but fantasy owners won't complain with another beastly line from the league's second-leading rebounder (13.1). As usual, he shot a terrific 8-of-10 from the field but a lousy 4-of-9 at the free throw line.
Jan 6 - 11:28 PM

Andre Drummond has shown improvement on defense for the Pistons, and is starting to become more of a vocal leader.

"I think, defensively, I'm playing a lot better, being an anchor for my team, and really tipping balls around to get my guys shots," Drummond said after Friday's win over the Knicks. "Really just being a better communicator on the floor." The trade of Josh Smith has opened up even more playing time for Drummond and he should continue to see increased production as the season progresses. His next chance to impress will be against DeMarcus Cousins and the Kings on Sunday evening.
Jan 4 - 11:30 AM

Andre Drummond grabbed 20 rebounds in Friday's blowout win over the Knicks, and also added seven points on 3-of-5 shooting (1-of-6 FTs) with four assists, three steals and one block.

The Josh Smith transaction will be a godsend for both Drummond and Greg Monroe (12 points, 10 boards, one steal), who can now focus on their respective roles and positions. And with the Pistons now 4-0 since Smith was waived, there isn't much to say other than 'what took you so long, Detroit?'
