Andre Drummond (Achilles), Blake Griffin (ankle) and Dwight Buycks (rest) will not play in Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Bulls.
This game is meaningless, so there's no incentive for any of these guys to get out there tonight. Eric Moreland and Anthony Tolliver should be looking at another start tonight, and Henry Ellenson might finally get his time to shine. Buycks wasn't in the rotation, so his absence will not have an impact in fantasy hoops. Apr 11 - 12:32 PM

Andre Drummond (Achilles) is listed as doubtful for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.

Drummond sat out Monday's loss to the Raptors, and the Pistons have no incentive to play him on Wednesday either unless he is 100 percent healthy. Eric Moreland started Monday vs. Toronto and finished with 11 points and seven rebounds in 32 minutes.

Andre Drummond (Achilles) has been ruled out for Monday's matchup with the Raptors.

Drummond does not have a history of Achilles issues, but the Pistons are on the second leg of a back-to-back set, and there's zero incentive for Drummond to push through anything with the playoffs no longer a reality. The Pistons will be very thin up front tonight with Blake Griffin (ankle) also unavailable, so there will be plenty of minutes for guys like Henry Ellenson, Anthony Tolliver and Eric Moreland. Reggie Jackson will be very busy on offense in this one.

Andre Drummond (illness) came through with a 13-point, 15-rebound double-double during Wednesday's loss to the 76ers, adding one assist, one block and four turnovers over 38 minutes.

Not only did the Pistons get eliminated from postseason play on their own home court tonight, but they lost in embarrassing fashion to a team that Stan Van Gundy was very critical of during the early stages of the process. This is the second year in a row that the Pistons will miss the postseason, and you have to wonder if SVG’s job as President of Basketball Operations is in danger.

Andre Drummond (illness) is warming up and is listed as the starter against the 76ers on Wednesday.

It sounds like he's going to play, but Drummond could be limited after missing shootaround. He'll be a risky DFS play today, but season-long owners have to put him in their lineups.
Apr 4 - 6:54 PM

Andre Drummond (stomach bug) did not go through shootaround, but he's hopeful he'll be able to play on Wednesday against the 76ers.

Drummond got into a bit of a skirmish with Quincy Acy on Sunday, but he will only be fined and not suspended. However, the illness could keep him out tonight, which could result in Eric Moreland earning the start, with guys like Reggie Jackson, Reggie Bullock and Stanley Johnson doing more on the offensive end. Stay tuned.

Andre Drummond was ejected from Sunday's game following an altercation with Quincy Acy.

Happy Easter, everyone. Drummond tore his jersey in half as he stormed off the court following the ejection, finishing with 13 points and 14 rebounds in 25 minutes. Acy looked like the instigator who could face additional punishment from the league, but owners of both guys should check for updates in the coming days. Eric Moreland gains the most with Drummond's early exit tonight.
Apr 1 - 7:55 PM

Andre Drummond scored 22 points with 17 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in 37 minutes during a 115-109 win over the Knicks on Saturday.

He need a Lasik endorsement for much he can produce a 20/20. Drummond didn't get it today, but he has 20 20/20s since 2012-13 for the most in the NBA in that span. Drummond's blocks are also surging these days and now he's averaged two-plus blocks per game in both February and March. His free throw percentage issues are worth the trouble in head-to-head category leagues, so taking him in the second round next year kind of makes a lot of sense.
Mar 31 - 8:17 PM

Andre Drummond went off during a 103-92 win over the Wizards on Thursday, scoring 24 points with 23 boards, four assists and one block in 38 minutes.

It was another monster game and Drummond was happy about it all game. Sure, the Pistons are out of the playoffs but that didn't stop him from dancing on the bench for the camera in the second half and after the game in an interview (video in link below). The bigger story from a fantasy perspective is that Blake Griffin (ankle) is hurting, so Drummond could be in for lines even bigger than this one.
Mar 29 - 10:04 PM

Andre Drummond scored 15 points with 18 rebounds, two assists and one block in 39 minutes vs. the Lakers on Monday.

Drummond only hit 5-of-16 shots, but made up for it by going 5-of-6 from the line. The Lakers even hacked him twice down the stretch, but he calmly hit all four free throws. He's having an incredible bounce-back campaign and coach Stan Van Gundy has challenged him to lead the league in both rebounds and blocks next season.
Mar 26 - 9:40 PM

Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy wants Andre Drummond to lead the NBA in rebounds and blocks next season.

Drummond already has one rebounding title in 2015-16 and is on pace to win this year as well. His blocks are also on the rise, as he's averaged 2.1 swats since Jan. 1 compared to 1.2 in the first 35 games of the season. "I don’t see why not," Drummond said when asked if that goal was attainable. Drummond also took a huge step from the free throw line this season, shooting a career-high 60.9%. He's attempting 5.0 per game, so it would still be hard to draft him without punting free throws next season.
Mar 26 - 10:43 AM

Andre Drummond scored 15 points with 20 rebounds, four assists, four steals, four blocks and no turnovers during a 117-95 win over the Bulls on Saturday.

Monster game. That's a 5x4 for Drummond to make him the seventh player with one of those in the last two seasons (Brow, Wade, Giannis, Boogie, Draymond, Cauley-Stein). None of those guys had more boards than Drummond and this line punctuates how he's not just a double-double anymore. He's only 24 and he could be even better next year.
Mar 24 - 9:45 PM

Andre Drummond hit just 2-of-7 shots for four points on Monday, but also had 16 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in a win over the Kings.

Drummond wasn't as great as he has been tonight and we were all hoping for more against Willie Cauley-Stein and company, but he at least came through with big boards and blocks in this one. Look for Drummond to bounce back on Tuesday against the Suns.
Mar 20 - 12:36 AM

Andre Drummond scored 18 points with 22 rebounds and two blocks in 37 minutes during a 100-87 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

He keeps putting up huge numbers and the Pistons keep losing games. In the last 10 games, Drummond and Blake Griffin have just a -7.4 net rating together, but Drummond without Blake has been a horrible -20.8. This season can't end soon enough for the Pistons, but not for Drummond's fantasy owners.
Mar 18 - 12:50 AM

Andre Drummond scored 21 points with 17 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 34 minutes during a 120-113 loss to the Nuggets on Thursday.

The Pistons have won just two games since the All-Star break with wins over the Bulls and Bucks. They have almost no chance to make the playoffs and it's probably time to start wondering if coach Stan Van Gundy is on the hot seat. Worse yet, Drummond broke out this year in his non-double-double stats, so that makes SVG look even worse.
