Andre Drummond hauled in nine offensive rebounds on Sunday, finishing with 16 boards, 20 points, four assists, two steals and one block in 33 minutes.
Drummond left in the third quarter in obvious pain, apparently due to a left elbow/forearm injury, but he looked fine upon returning. It's possible he banged his funny bone and we'll leave him off the injury report prior to Monday's game vs. Cleveland. Nov 19 - 9:35 PM

Andre Drummond scored 11 points with 15 rebounds, five assists, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes against the Pacers during a 107-100 loss on Friday.

This was a bad loss for the Pistons with a 22-point lead during the third quarter. As for Drummond, that makes it 15 straight games with 12-plus boards, which puts him one shy of Moses Malone's record of 16 straight games with 12-plus boards to start an NBA season. While Drummond's free throw shooting has dropped from that absurd 77.8 percent he had as of Nov. 7, at least he's been at 50 percent or better in each of his last four games. Drummond is a playing big minutes and has a chance at a 20-15 in almost any matchup.
Nov 17 - 9:39 PM

Andre Drummond made 3-of-8 FGs and 2-of-4 FTs for eight points on Sunday, but he added a game-high 17 rebounds, four assists and one block in 36 minutes.

The Pistons didn't lose during their five-game homestand, improving their record to an impressive 10-3, trailing only the red-hot Celtics in the East. Drummond now has at least 12 rebounds in every game this season, putting him in Moses Malone territory, and he's holding onto top-25 roto value even with his FT% slipping on a nightly basis.
Nov 12 - 7:15 PM

Andre Drummond turned in a career-high seven assists against the Hawks during a 111-104 win on Friday, adding 16 points, 20 rebounds and two blocks in 37 minutes.

He was also 4-of-6 from the line and hit two big free throws in the fourth. Drummond also has tied the second-most games with 12-plus rebounds to start a season in the last 40 years (Mose Malone 16, tied with Kevin Love). The Pistons are playing elite defense and offense this year, and are flying high with their 9-3 record. Drummond's strong preseason was no fluke and he's becoming a monster in DFS.
Nov 10 - 10:05 PM

Andre Drummond grabbed a season-high 21 rebounds on Wednesday, adding 14 points (7-of-9 FGs, 0-of-7 FTs), four assists, one block and four turnovers in 34 minutes.

Drummond is off to a great start this year, in part because the offense is running through him more often. "He loves to handle the ball, and now he’s getting a chance to do that," Stan Van Gundy said. The only bad news is that Drummond, who came in shooting 75.0 percent at the FT line, missed all seven of his attempts at home tonight. Most owners drafted him thinking he'd tank the category, so we'll take what we can get.

Nov 8 - 9:51 PM

Andre Drummond scored 16 points with 19 rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in 36 minutes against the Kings on Saturday.

He was only 2-of-4 from the line today, so his 77.8 percent coming into today drops slightly. Drummond has really shortened up his stroke with very little arm movement and better rotation on the ball. Also, he's been much better at setting up the offense and has actually backed the ball out after an offensive board to set up some nice two-man basketball with his point guards. He looks set for a big season.
Nov 4 - 10:11 PM

Andre Drummond credits hard work and mental toughness for his improved accuracy at the free-throw line this season.

Drummond had made just 38.1 percent of his free throws attempts in his career coming into this season. After knocking down 14-of-16 on Friday night, Drummond is now 28-for-36 (77.8 percent) on the season. To put that in context, Drummond has a higher free-throw percentage than Russell Westbrook, John Wall and Kyle Korver. "It's just a testament, over the years, not even just the summer, the hard work I've put in to finding something that really works," Drummond.
Nov 4 - 9:36 AM

Andre Drummond made 14-of-16 from the line and 5-of-7 from the field for 24 points with 15 rebounds, one steal, two blocks and no turnovers in just 28 minutes.

There are a lot of surprises in the NBA, but Drummond improving his lowly 38.6 percent from the line last year to 77.8 percent on a 36-shot sample is stunning. Besides the "make your free throws" crowd nodding in approval, NBA coaches aren't going to be doing a Hack-a-Dre anytime soon and his coach knows it. "I don't think that strategy is going to work this year," coach Stan Van Gundy said. Is he going to flirt with 80 percent this year? Probably not. Still, he deserves a lot of credit and his fantasy owners may have to alter their plans due to his sudden improvement.
Nov 3 - 11:46 PM

Asked to be more of a facilitator, Andre Drummond has embraced his new role in the Pistons offense this season.

Coach Stan Van Gundy calls Drummond’s new role a "hub." The Pistons are asking Drummond to be a bit more active in the pick-and-roll game, and help set up his teammates. Drummond has had to sacrifice shots (he's averaging fewer than 11 field goal attempts per game for the first time since 2013-14), but he's also averaging a career-high 2.6 assists per game. Drummond is off to a great start this season, returning third-round value.
Oct 31 - 10:16 AM

Playing in the second of back-to-back games, Andre Drummond scored eight points with 18 rebounds, five assists and five steals in 41 minutes vs. the Warriors.

This snaps a streak of four straight double-doubles for Drummond, whose fantasy owners are used to taking the good with the bad. He didn't have any blocks tonight, but his five swipes have him averaging 2.3 steals per game. He shot an uncharacteristic 4-of-17 from the field, without a single free throw attempt, but his five assists were a season-high. Even with tonight's odd line included, he's off to a great start in 2017-18.
Oct 29 - 11:30 PM

Andre Drummond came through with 15 points, a season-high 17 rebounds, two steals and season-high three blocks on 7-of-10 shooting in Saturday's impressive win over the Clippers.

Drummond was great tonight and got the best of DeAndre Jordan, who had seven points, 14 rebounds and three blocks in the loss. Perhaps the most exciting thing about Drummond this season is his improved free throw shooting, as he's hit 72 percent of them thus far. He's also double-doubled in four straight games, has at least 12 rebounds in all six of his games this season, and also has at least one steal in each of his games.
Oct 29 - 1:06 AM

Andre Drummond posted 15 points, 15 rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block vs. Minnesota on Wednesday, with seven of his boards on the offensive glass.

Drummond came in making 83.3 percent of his free throws this season, but we're talking about a guy who once missed an NBA-record 23 freebies in a single game -- he reverted to form with a 3-of-6 mark tonight. That's just a footnote in an otherwise strong performance.
Oct 25 - 11:02 PM

Andre Drummond hit 5-of-9 shots and 4-of-6 free throws for 14 points, 14 rebounds, four steals and a block in 38 minutes of Monday's loss to the Sixers.

He was kind of dominated by Joel Embiid, but his free throw shooting might be one of the best stories of the early season. He was 6-of-6 coming into this game and is now 10-of-12 on the season, good for 83 percent. It's early and we're still waiting for the other shoe to drop, but so far, he looks amazing at the line. He's also had at least 12 boards and a steal in all four of his games, and has blocked four shots as well.
Oct 23 - 9:49 PM

Andre Drummond scored 21 points and hauled down 12 rebounds in 38 minutes during Saturday's 111-107 victory over the Knicks.

Drummond was impressively efficient in this contest, shooting 9-of-11 from the field and knocking down all three of his free throws. He's a career 38.2 percent free-throw shooter, but is 5-of-5 from the charity stripe this season.
Oct 21 - 11:00 PM

Andre Drummond fouled out in 26 minutes against the Wizards on Friday, scoring nine points with 12 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one turnover.

That's two games in a row with foul trouble for Drummond, but he's still done damage on the glass with 25 boards in his 48 minutes this season. Plus, he's still 3-of-3 from the line in this young season and he did have success in the preseason, so maybe he can improve on his career 38.2 percent from the charity stripe. He'll be better and gets a dream matchup against the Knicks on Saturday.
