Pistons coach Stan Van Gundy said that Andre Drummond "needs to have a sense of urgency to elevate his game."
Drummond took a disappointing step back this season. His stats dropped across the board, including his scoring and rebounding averages. His free throw percentage remained below 39 percent. Van Gundy did say that Drummond has "a chance to be really good to great, but he needs to do some work to get there." Over the final five games of the season, with Boban Marjanovic seeing increased playing time, Drummond averaged only 8.6 points and 11.0 rebounds. Apr 15 - 11:14 AM

Andre Drummond scored eight points with nine rebounds, one assist and one steal in 20 minutes against the Rockets on Friday.

Boban Marjanovic made Andre Drummond look like, well, someone who doesn't play in the NBA. Drummond has been a major letdown all season and Boban going off just makes it look even worse. He'll have a very important offseason coming up because he has so many offensive holes.
Apr 7 - 11:18 PM

Andre Drummond made 2-of-4 from the line for two points with 11 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and two steals in 29 minutes against the Nets on Thursday.

His only shot from the field was a little floater in the paint and he missed it. Obviously Drummond's offensive game is in shambles these days, failing to score more than 10 points in any of his last five. In that span, he averaged just 7.0 points, 14.0 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.2 blocks and 0.8 steals on 45.7 percent from the field and 17.6 percent from the line. The 23-year-old center has regressed big time.
Mar 30 - 10:14 PM

Andre Drummond finished with 10 points, 15 rebounds and three assists in 25 minutes Monday against the Knicks.

In typical Drum fashion he made five of his seven field goal attempts yet missed each of his four tries from the free throw stripe. He'll go toe-to-toe against Miami's Hassan Whiteside in a battle of the big men on Tuesday night at the Palace.
Mar 27 - 10:30 PM

Andre Drummond scored six points during a 115-87 loss to the Magic on Friday, adding 14 rebounds, two assists and one block in 20 minutes.

He hasn't had much success in the last two games, making a combined 7-of-20 from the field and missing all six from the line. Drummond and the Pistons are one of the coldest teams in basketball, but the 23-year-old Drummond should still get his minutes when it's not garbage time. He gets a much better matchup against the Knicks on Monday.
Mar 24 - 9:29 PM

Andre Drummond (knee) hauled in 17 rebounds on Wednesday, with eight of them on the offensive glass, but he added just eight points on 4-of-12 shooting in a lopsided loss to Chicago.

Drummond checked out late on Tuesday due to a minor knee ailment, but coach Stan Van Gundy played it down, and nothing about his play indicated discomfort. Drummond did solid work on the boards tonight, but his rim protection was suspect and the Bulls piled up 58 points in the paint. His owners surely expected more against Chicago's decimated frontcourt.
Mar 22 - 10:35 PM

Andre Drummond (knee) will start Wednesday vs. the Bulls, as expected.

Drummond left Tuesday's game during the closing minutes of the fourth quarter with some minor knee pain, but it was never expected to be an issue that would cause him to spend any additional time on the sidelines. Ish Smith, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Marcus Morris and Tobias Harris will join him in the starting five for tonight's game.

Andre Drummond (knee) exited Tuesday's loss to the Nets late fourth quarter, but coach Stan Van Gundy said Drummond was "OK."

Drummond was apparently dealing with some minor knee pain which forced him from the game with 3:22 left in the fourth. Van Gundy said he stuck with Aron Baynes the rest of the way because the Pistons went on a run. We will have to wait for confirmation from the Pistons, but it appears as though Drummond should be available for Wednesday's game vs. the Bulls.
Mar 22 - 12:38 PM

Andre Drummond piled up 18 points, 18 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in a 112-95 win vs. Phoenix on Sunday.

Drummond made 7-of-10 field goals but he was just 4-of-11 at the line. In his past dozen games he's a combined 19-of-68 (27.9 percent), which is atrocious even by his standards. That said, it was nice to see Drummond scoring 10+ points after a three-game lull in single-digits, his longest of the season. He'll face a stiffer test vs. Miami on Monday.
Mar 19 - 7:24 PM

Andre Drummond scored eight points with 22 rebounds, one block, two steals, three turnovers and six fouls in 36 minutes against the Raptors on Friday.

That's his third straight game with single-digit scoring, but the previous two had something to do with garbage time. As per usual, a major problem for Drummond these days is at the line, making just 11-of-38 (28.9 percent) in March. If the Pistons are going to make the postseason, they'll need their big man to play better. He hasn't really shown much improvement this season and it's fair to say he's regressed.
Mar 17 - 10:41 PM

Andre Drummond played only 20 minutes during a lopsided loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, posting six points, five rebounds and one steal.

Ouch. Drummond was badly outplayed by Rudy Gobert tonight, and Stan Van Gundy didn't hesitate to bench his struggling starters. It's not the first time SVG has messed with Drummond's minutes, and it won't be the last, but he should be fine vs. Toronto on Friday.
Mar 16 - 12:38 AM

Andre Drummond made 10-of-12 from the field for 24 points with 15 rebounds, three steals and one block in 30 minutes against the Knicks.

He was phenomenal as a roll man in this game, having chemistry with almost every Pistons ball-handler in the win. Drummond turned in his 45th double-double of the season to tie him with Rudy Gobert for fourth in the NBA -- Drummond led the NBA last year with 66. He is as hot as he's been all season and has four games this upcoming week.
Mar 11 - 8:50 PM

Andre Drummond had 20 points, 16 rebounds and zero blocks on 10-of-13 shooting in 36 minutes of Thursday's 106-101 win over the Cavaliers.

Drummond's blocks have been a bit MIA lately, as he hasn't blocked one in his last two games, and has totaled just five of them over his last 10 games. With or without the blocks, he's a fantasy stud, but you have to think the odds are in his favor that the swats will start happening again soon.
Mar 9 - 10:33 PM

Andre Drummond posted 12 points with eight rebounds and a blocked shot in 30 minutes on Monday against the Bulls.

It wasn't a bad stat line for some players, but we've come to expect so much more from Drum. He started off rather slowly and picked up traction in the second half, still nearly posting a double-double. The Bulls were hacking him, sending Drummond to the line eight times. He converted four of his attempts from the charity stripe, which was actually not half bad for him.
Mar 6 - 11:45 PM

Andre Drummond scored 14 points with 14 rebounds, two assists, four steals and three blocks in 32 minutes during an easy 136-130 win in Philadelphia on Saturday.

He just owns the 76ers with averages of 17 points and 16 boards in his last seven games against them. Drummond picked up his 42nd double-double on the season and now has 10 in his last 11 games. He's second in the NBA in boards per game and is back after a brief slump earlier this season.
