Andre Drummond scored 15 points with 17 rebounds and three blocks in 31 minutes during a 110-98 loss to the Celtics on Friday.
The Celtics did a fine job of neutralizing Drummond from getting the ball down low while they kept Blake away from the hoop, as well. Griffin finished with 17 points, four rebounds, one steal, six turnovers and two 3-pointers over his 35 minutes. The Pistons are now 2.0 games behind the Heat at the completion of their game, so they could be 2.5 back with a Miami win in New Orleans. They have some work to do. Feb 23 - 9:29 PM

Andre Drummond hit 4-of-12 shots and 5-of-8 free throws for 13 points, 21 rebounds, a steal and a block in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.

Drummond has been a rebounding monster for a few weeks now, as this was his fifth 20-rebound game over his last 11 played. The Pelicans actually started Emeka Okafor to help deal with Drummond and Blake Griffin, and the plan appears to have worked since New Orleans got the 118-103 win. The Pistons have finally cooled off, losing three straight after winning five straight after acquiring Griffin.
Feb 12 - 9:38 PM

Andre Drummond (ankle) hauled in a season-high 27 rebounds during Wednesday's home win, adding 17 points, three steals, three blocks and two assists in 36 minutes.

Drummond was dealing with a minor injury but his status was never truly in doubt, and coach Stan Van Gundy said before tip-off that Drummond was "fine." The reigning Eastern Conference player of the week will also be playing in his second All-Star game this month, and he's been a nice surprise for owners who gambled on draft day. The only smirch on his line tonight was percentages -- he went 5-of-17 from the field and 7-of-10 from the line.
Feb 7 - 10:24 PM

Coach Stan Van Gundy said Andre Drummond (ankle) is "fine" for Wednesday against the Nets.

He did have a mild ankle tweak on Monday, but he should be all set in a great matchup. Drummond and Blake Griffin have been great together with their starting unit posting an elite +15.9 net rating together. He's an option in DFS.
Feb 7 - 5:38 PM

Andre Drummond (ankle), Luke Kennard (foot) and Dwight Buycks (illness) are not on the injury report for Wednesday's game against the Nets.

Drummond tweaked his ankle on Monday, but played through it, and it looks like he'll be out there for tonight's game. Kennard returned from a one-game absence on Monday without an issue, and Buycks should be back out there following a two-game stint on the sidelines. Check back for official confirmation closer to tip-off.
Feb 7 - 12:32 PM

Andre Drummond sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter of Monday's blowout win over the Blazers, stayed in the game to shoot free throws, and left the game shortly thereafter.

He left under his own power, stayed on the bench and didn't even take off his shoe, so it's possible he might have re-entered the game had it not been a blowout. We're going to put him on the injury report, but if we had to guess, it looks like he might be fine to play on Wednesday against the Nets, assuming it doesn't swell badly overnight. Drummond and Blake Griffin look fantastic together and the big man hit 7-of-12 shots for 17 points, 17 rebounds, five assists, a steal and three blocks in 34 minutes, and owners should check back on his status on Tuesday and Wednesday. If Drummond does miss that game Anthony Tolliver would likely be in line for another big night.
Feb 5 - 9:19 PM

Andre Drummond had one of the best stat lines of the season during a 111-107 win over the Heat on Saturday, scoring 23 points with 20 boards, one assist, four steals and four blocks in 36 minutes.

That makes him the first player to drop a 20-20 with at least four blocks and four steals since 1989. Drummond bounced back in a big way after he did not close on Thursday, and he cleaned up on the offensive glass with seven on that end. The drop in assists is going to be there for Drummond, but his owners can forgive him with monster stat lines like this one.
Feb 3 - 10:35 PM

Andre Drummond scored 14 points, 15 rebounds, three assists, three steals and one block in 28 minutes against the Grizzlies on Thursday.

We did get a surprise down the stretch with Anthony Tolliver closing over Drummond for basically the last 3:09 -- Drummond was in for a couple rebounding chances on free throws. Perhaps most notably, Drummond was not on the court for the biggest defensive play of the game when the Grizzlies had the ball down one with 20 seconds left. He did look comfortable with Blake Griffin and even had a dunk off a Griffin dime, but Drummond may take a hit with Blake around. Perhaps the craziest stat on Drummond's adjustment is how 58 percent of his assists went to Tobias Harris or Avery Bradley before the trade. To be clear, Drummond is still going to be a monster.
Feb 1 - 10:18 PM

Andre Drummond (illness) had a monster night vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday with 21 points, 22 rebounds, seven assists, three steals and three blocks.

If James Harden didn't put up a 60-point triple-double, this would've been the line of the night. Despite playing at less than 100 percent, Drummond hit 9-of-12 shots in 38 minutes, though he did hit just 3-of-7 free throws with three turnovers. His passing has improved significantly this season, but it's fair to expect a modest dip in assists once Blake Griffin shows up.
Jan 31 - 12:12 AM

Andre Drummond (illness) is starting vs. the Cavaliers on Tuesday.

He was a true-game time call, but made it through warmups just fine. He's not 100 percent, but his season-long owners should activate him and hope for the best. In more good news, Drummond was named to the All-Star team in place of John Wall (knee).
Jan 30 - 7:59 PM

Andre Drummond (illness) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's matchup with the Cavs.

If Drummond can't give it a go tonight, the Pistons will be very thin up front, as Blake Griffin and Willie Reed won't be available. Eric Moreland would have the opportunity to start at the five if Drummond sits, and Anthony Tolliver could also be seeing big minutes tonight. Tolliver is the preferable target here.
Jan 30 - 6:02 PM

Andre Drummond scored 12 points with 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three blocks in 31 minutes against the Thunder on Saturday.

He was also just 2-of-6 from the line today, which marked just the fourth time he's been under 40 percent from the line in a game when attempting at least five freebies. Drummond is also seeing a nice upward trend in his blocks, boards and steals. He's been a fantasy stud now that he's not killing FT%.
Jan 27 - 8:10 PM

Andre Drummond was phenomenal vs. Utah on Wednesday, posting a season-high 30 points with 24 rebounds, six blocks, four assists and three steals in 39 minutes.

Drummond rose to the challenge vs. Rudy Gobert tonight, and one of his blocks was a crucial swat late in regulation -- the Jazz still forced overtime and went on to win 98-95. Drummond made 11-of-17 field goals and 8-of-12 free throws tonight, and he's the first player with 30/24/6 in a game since Shaquille O'Neal did it in 2004. He's been a top-10 fantasy option for the past month, even with FT% included.
Jan 24 - 11:24 PM

Andre Drummond finished with 14 points, 21 rebounds and eight assists over 43 minutes in Friday's home loss against the Wizards before fouling out late in the fourth quarter.

The Pistons might have fallen by 10 points at home, but it was no fault of Drum. He brought it on Friday, hitting 4-of-5 from the field while adding 6-of-8 from the free-throw line, adding eight assists, two steals and two blocked shots. Six of his rebounds were at the offensive end, too, giving his team second chances to score.
Jan 19 - 11:23 PM

Andre Drummond made 12-of-15 shots to score 25 points on Wednesday, adding 17 rebounds, four steals and two assists in 38 minutes.

The Pistons lost their third straight game despite Drummond's big game, and they were undone by inefficiency -- aside from Drummond, they shot 34.2 percent as a team. Detroit is still clinging to the No. 8 seed in the East with a 22-21 record, and the push for a playoff spot should ensure Drummond and other key guys play big minutes in the second half of the season.
