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.

Andre Drummond ran into early foul trouble on Wednesday, finishing a win vs. the Hornets with eight points, 13 rebounds (five offensive), four assists, two blocks and one steal in just 22 minutes.

Drummond lost weight and had surgery to correct a deviated septum this offseason, which should improve his conditioning throughout the season. Fouls spoiled the fun tonight but he still put up a nice line, and the per-minute output can't be faulted. If nothing else, he'll be very well-rested vs. the Wizards on Friday.
Oct 18 - 10:40 PM

Andre Drummond hit 4-of-10 shots and 6-of-6 free throws for 14 points, 11 rebounds, three steals and no blocks in 38 minutes of Tuesday's preseason loss to the Raptors.

Drummond, a traditionally horrible free throw shooter, has now knocked down 12-of-14 of them this preseason. While that's encouraging, it's going to take a lot more strong shooting from the line before we'll be convinced he won't wreck fantasy team's free throw percentage this season. He missed his last game with pink eye, but was good to go tonight.
Oct 10 - 9:22 PM

Andre Drummond (pink eye) and Reggie Jackson (knee) are good to go for Tuesday's preseason game against Toronto.

Drummond has spent the past few preseason games on the sidelines with this pink eye issue, but it was never going to be anything that would have impacted his status for opening night. Jackson looked great in his preseason debut on Monday, and it's very encouraging to see him taking the court on the second night of a back-to-back set for these exhibition games. Joining these two in the starting five will be Luke Kennard, Stanley Johnson and Tobias Harris.

Andre Drummond (pink eye) will not play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

He was originally considered doubtful and the Pistons have no reason to throw him out there at less than 100 percent. Drummond said he feels fine and could be back for Tuesday's game vs. Toronto. Hopefully Boban Marjanovic gets a long look tonight.
Oct 9 - 11:51 AM

Andre Drummond (pink eye) did not practice on Sunday and he's doubtful to play in Monday's preseason game against the Pacers.

Pink eye obviously won't be an issue that will affect Drummond during the regular season, and this is a good example of how minor the injuries can be for guys to miss time during the preseason. He's looking to bounce-back after a disappointing 2017-18 campaign, and he reportedly made strides to improve his conditioning this offseason. As always with Drummond, his value to your fantasy team will depend on if you're employing a free throw punting strategy.

Andre Drummond (pink eye) will not play Friday vs. the Hawks.

Jon Leuer will start at center for Detroit. Drummond is expected to be back at practice on Sunday. He's coming off a disappointing 2016-17 season, but had offseason nasal surgery and has been adamantly claiming he plans to bounce back in a big way this year. Drummond scored 16 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in his preseason debut on Wednesday. Encouragingly, he also knocked down 6-of-8 free throws.
Oct 6 - 11:57 AM

Andre Drummond had a case of pink eye at practice on Thursday and is questionable to play on Friday.

He did some weightlifting at practice on Thursday, but coach Stan Van Gundy isolated his big man. Drummond was very good on Wednesday night with a 16-point, 15-board gem, and there's also talk of him being more of a point-center. He's a good bet to lead the NBA in boards while scoring in the upper teens.
Oct 5 - 3:13 PM

Andre Drummond notched 16 points, 15 rebounds, one steal and one block on Wednesday, while shooting 5-of-9 from the field and 6-of-8 from the free throw line.

The free throws were a nice sight but we'll need to see that a few dozen more times. What is believable is that Drummond feels good after losing weight and having surgery to correct a deviated septum this summer. Another factor in his favor for fantasy purposes is durability -- Drummond has missed just three games over the past four seasons.
Oct 4 - 10:32 PM

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy showered praise on Andre Drummond for his performance during the first two days of training camp.

"His focus has been tremendous," Van Gundy said. "I said that in front of the group, more than anybody, he’s really tried to play to his strengths and play to the things that we’ve talked about so his focus and his energy have both been outstanding." Drummond lost 20 pounds over the offseason and also said his offseason surgery to repair a deviated septum has helped him breathe and sleep better. Coming off a down year, Drummond will look to return to All-Star form and help the Pistons make it back to the playoffs.
Sep 28 - 10:20 AM

Andre Drummond said he has lost over 20 pounds since the end of the regular season.

Drummond had offseason surgery to repair a deviated septum and says it has already made a world of difference. "I’m breathing better, sleeping better and in way better shape now," said Drummond. "I’m going to be able to go longer. I’m able to breathe clearer. I keep the weight off now." He also says he's looking to extend his range and is "shooting free throws with confidence" and "taking shots with confidence now." It's worth noting that Drummond attempted six 3-pointers during the NBA Africa Game last weekend. He made one.
Aug 11 - 1:24 PM

Stan Van Gundy said he wants Andre Drummond to focus on becoming an "All-Defense type of guy" next season.

"The step, to me, for Andre is to do a little bit of what DeAndre Jordan does and dominate the game at the defensive end of the floor," said Van Gundy. "Become that All-Defense type of guy. Because he’s already a historically great rebounder and to add to that becoming a great defender and build his game from there and everything to be built around the basket." Drummond turned in a career-low 1.1 blocks per game last season and also saw a slight dip in his scoring and rebounding numbers, but given that he's only 24 years old, he makes for a prime bounce-back candidate.

Aug 7 - 4:44 PM

Andre Drummond admitted that he didn't play up to his potential last season and is looking to bounce back in 2017-18.

After signing a massive contract extension last summer, Drummond surprisingly took a step back in 2016-17. His scoring, rebounding and blocked shot averages all decreased compared to the prior season. "My play wasn’t where it was supposed to be and I take responsibility for that; I wasn’t playing up to my potential — and I can’t allow that to happen again," said Drummond. He had offseason surgery to repair a deviated septum, which should help his endurance. He may be undervalued in five-category fantasy leagues drafts this fall.
Aug 4 - 12:20 PM

Andre Drummond (nose) said that he's been medically cleared for well over a month.

He's also been playing in the Drew League and said he can tell a huge difference after undergoing surgery to correct a deviated septum back in May. "I'm in great shape and I can actually breath since I've gotten that surgery," he said. Drummond added that he takes responsibility for his rough 2016-17 season in which his scoring, rebounding, and blocks dipped. He's a prime bounce-back candidate, but you have no choice but to punt free throws if you draft him.
