Andre Drummond piled up 15 points, 17 rebounds, five blocks, three steals and two blocks on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to defeat the visiting Nuggets.
Drummond uncharacteristically shot just 7-of-22 from the field tonight, but his owners will be pleased to note that he made his only free throw attempt -- if only more coaches would refrain from hacking him. The Pistons' loss dropped them to 27-27 on the season, leaving them half a game behind the Hornets from the No. 8 seed. Feb 11 - 12:50 AM

Andre Drummond double-doubled vs. the Raptors on Monday with 12 points, 13 boards, two assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

He missed practice on Sunday after taking a hard fall in Saturday's game, but he didn't look limited at all tonight and recorded his sixth double-double in a row. He did shoot just 3-of-8 from the free throw line, but his owners have likely accepted the fact that he will struggle from there for the remainder of the season. His 3-pointer was a buzzer beater from 71 feet at the end of the third quarter which is the longest made shot of the year. Check it out in the link below.

Andre Drummond missed practice on Sunday and is good to go on Monday against the Raptors.

He had a bad fall on Saturday, but there is no concern of this affecting Drummond's playing time. Just keep this in mind if you want to use him in DFS tonight.
Feb 8 - 6:05 PM

Andre Drummond scored 17 points with 13 rebounds, one steal and one steal in 32 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

He did suffer a fall on his hip in this game, but it didn't affect his playing time. The Knicks did do a Hack-A-Dre briefly in this game and that also didn't hurt his playing time either. He put up his 42nd double-double of the season and will be in the dunk contest next week.
Feb 4 - 10:11 PM

Andre Drummond not only hit 6-of-11 shots for 16 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks, he also hit 4-of-6 free throws in Wednesday's loss to Boston.

He had hit just 4-of-20 free throws over his previous three games, so tonight's stellar job at the line is a big deal. Having said that, owners already know he's going to ruin their team's percentage from the line on a weekly basis, so tonight's solid free throw effort will go to waste. Even with the horrendous free throw experience from Drummond, he's a fun player to own when he's putting up monster double-doubles on a near nightly basis.
Feb 3 - 10:53 PM

Andre Drummond scored 21 points with 18 rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 37 minutes against the Nets on Monday.

He went 1-of-3 from the line tonight, which was probably a mistake on the Nets' part. In fact, Drummond made just 25.9 percent from the line in his eight road games last month. The Pistons are working on Drummond's issue with sensors to try and figure out the mechanics of where he's going wrong.
Feb 1 - 10:52 PM

The Pistons have been using sensors and other methods to try and improve Andre Drummond's free throw shooting.

The Pistons are visibly frustrated and it might be bothering Reggie Jackson. Drummond had a sleeve on during games earlier in the season for protection, but he ditched it last month. While it isn't aesthetically pleasing to see a Hack-A-Dre, why wouldn't teams do it? Drummond managed to make just 28.5 percent in his last 16 games, so even the worst offense in the NBA would destroy that output. He's also worse on the road, so that makes him risky to use in road games.
Feb 1 - 2:40 PM

Andre Drummond fouled out in his 28 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday with 11 points, 12 rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He is unfathomably bad at free throws on the road. In fact, Drummond made just 65-of-200 (32.5 percent) in his road games this year. Drummond's coach senses something isn't right with Stan Van Gundy saying his "head isn't where it needs to be" because he's focused on free throws. While Aron Baynes is playing well, Drummond's minutes should still be very safe.
Jan 30 - 9:36 PM

Andre Drummond scored 20 points during a 114-106 loss to the Cavs on Friday with eight rebounds, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes.

He passed Tayshaun Prince for seventh on the Detroit all-time block list. Drummond's rebounds have really dropped recently with eight or less in three of his last four. A lot of that is due to getting fouled so much, which seems like it'll continue. If you count FT%, Drummond is only a ninth-round guy. If you don't, he's a top-five player this season.
Jan 29 - 11:30 PM

Andre Drummond had a huge double-double on Wednesday with 25 points and 18 rebounds (nine offensive), helping the Pistons defeat the 76ers for their second straight victory.

Drummond added two steals and one block in 35 minutes of action, while making 9-of-16 field goals and a relatively impressive 7-of-12 free throws. Stan Van Gundy recently suggested that his FT struggles are mental, and he's been historically horrible at the line this month, so it's nice to see him go over the 50.0 percent mark tonight.
Jan 27 - 11:20 PM

Andre Drummond's struggles continued on Monday vs. the Jazz, scoring seven points with six boards and two steals in 29 minutes.

This was his second dud in a row. Drummond scored just four points with eight boards, one assist and one block in 18 minutes on Saturday, so his owners should be a little concerned. Stan Van Gundy has been hesitant to play him down the stretch in close games because of his woeful free throw shooting, and it didn't help that he was just 1-of-10 from the line in this one. This was the just the third time this season that he failed to reach double figures in both the scoring and rebounding columns, so a buy-low window just opened if you're looking to punt free throws. He is playing for a max contract and an All-Star bid, so expect him to turn it around.
Jan 26 - 2:21 AM

Stan Van Gundy believes there is a psychological component to Andre Drummond's struggles at the foul line.

"In the gym, he’s made a lot of progress," Van Gundy said. "You can see the work and practice sessions where he’s gotten a lot better. But in games, it’s actually gotten worse," he said. "There’s clearly a psychological component to it and something that he’s got to continue to work through in terms of his mental practice and his routines to get to the point that it will translate into games." Despite an improving technique and better practice results, Drummond is shooting a career-worst 35.4 percent from the stripe.
Jan 25 - 12:05 PM

Other than his woeful free throw shooting, Stan Van Gundy wants Andre Drummond to be more intense.

"Just his energy, size and athleticism, that combination," SVG said. "He’s going to rebound, he’s going to get baskets rolling to the hoop, he’s going to run the floor; he can be great defensively. He’s gotten better. He’s making progress but he’s still up and down in terms of his intensity level." Drummond had his worst game of the season on Saturday with just four points, eight boards and one block in 18 minutes, but look for him to bounce back against the Jazz on Monday. It's worth noting that it's not the first time we've heard about Drummond's effort level, which has reportedly been questioned privately by some in the organization.
Jan 24 - 10:38 AM

Andre Drummond played just 18 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Nuggets, scoring four points with eight boards, one assist and one block in 18 minutes.

It was his worst game of the season by far and it was the fourth time this campaign that he failed to score in double digits. Drummond missed all four of his free throws on the night, so coach Stan Van Gundy once again turned to Aron Baynes down the stretch. Drummond still leads the league in double-doubles and has been playing at an All-Star level, so he deserves a pass here.
Jan 24 - 1:09 AM

Andre Drummond scored 19 points against the Pelicans during a 115-99 loss on Thursday, adding 22 boards, one assist and four steals.

He was only 3-of-5 from the line and luckily wasn't fouled intentionally tonight. Drummond has made just 34.9 percent on the road this season before tonight , so it certainly makes sense for teams to hack him. There are also 10 different NBA teams with more free throw misses than Drummond this year. While he's one of the worst FT% ever in fantasy, he's a monster.
