Stan Van Gundy said he's going to prioritize the Pistons' future going forward.
Andre Drummond, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope and rookie Spencer Dinwiddie are expected to be focal points as the team evaluates its players. The Pistons are expected to feed Drummond more on the offensive end to see what he can do. "I wouldn't say that's right now our best choice coming down the floor in a game," Van Gundy said. "Well, I think we've got to shift back to giving him that stuff so that he develops, so we don't have him next year at the same place he is now." Drummond has had his best month of the season in December with averages of 15.0 points, 13.7 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 2.0 blocks on 52.6 percent shooting. Dec 22 - 9:21 AM

Andre Drummond went off for 19 points, a season-high 24 rebounds, four steals and three blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.

His early-season slump is officially over as he posted one of the best big-man lines of the season. Yeah, he hit just 1-of-6 free throws, but you knew that was part of the deal when you drafted him. Drummond is averaging 16.4 points, 15.2 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.4 blocks over his last five games.
Dec 17 - 11:47 PM

Andre Drummond scored 18 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 13 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in the Pistons' 113-91 loss to the Clippers on Monday.

Drummond's field goal shooting is the only thing truly out of place compared to last season and to that end he scored a win tonight. He's still a buy low target but lines like this won't help your cause.
Dec 16 - 3:06 AM

Andre Drummond scored 23 points on 10-of-14 shooting with 14 rebounds, one steal and one block in Friday's road win over the Suns.

Drummond has a ways to go before he reaches last year's lofty fantasy value, but at least he's getting bigger numbers on a more frequent basis. Owners need only to key on his slowly rising 45.9 percent mark from the field to get a gauge on his value, as that is the only thing truly different from last season other than a five percent improvement in free throw percentage.
Dec 13 - 2:11 AM

Andre Drummond bounced back from Saturday's quiet game to score 16 points on 7-of-12 shots with nine rebounds, two steals and one block on Sunday.

Drummond navigated foul trouble in his 32 minutes, which has become an unfortunate theme during Detroit's first 21 games, but he's been heating up over the past few weeks and has raised his FG percentage to 46.4 percent. With nearly three-quarters of the season remaining, Drummond's arrow is pointing up.
Dec 7 - 9:14 PM

Andre Drummond did not play down the stretch or in overtime against the 76ers on Saturday, finishing with seven points, eight boards one steal and two blocks in 21 minutes.

He was in foul trouble in the second quarter with three quick fouls, but that's not why he didn't play down the stretch. Coach Stan Van Gundy has picked his spots on Drummond, but he did play 42 minutes in his last game. He's been very annoying to fantasy owners and he could be a buy-low target.
Dec 6 - 11:05 PM

Andre Drummond dominated without much help against the Celtics on Wednesday during an overtime loss, scoring 27 points with 14 boards, four steals and five blocks in 42 minutes.

He made 12-of-18 from the field and the Celtics simply couldn't stop him inside. Drummond had a 26-point, 20-board game on Friday and had two somewhat quiet games in between. The buy-low window is starting to close on Drummond and he might be starting to improve in his different offensive role.
Dec 3 - 10:42 PM

Andre Drummond was awful in Sunday's loss to the Warriors, making 1-of-8 shots to finish with two points, seven rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

He's been on fire for the past week, averaging 19.8 points and 14.8 rebounds, but it hasn't resulted in any wins for the Pistons who have dropped eight straight and counting. This should be a blip on the radar for Drummond, who faces a very favorable matchup with the Lakers on Tuesday, and Detroit's upcoming four-game schedule solidifies him as a must-start center.
Nov 30 - 7:37 PM

Andre Drummond set season-highs for scoring (26) and rebounding (20) in Friday's loss to the Bucks, hitting 12-of-19 shots with a steal and block in 38 minutes.

Welcome back, Andre. The Pistons threw a lot at the kid and he short-circuited for a bit there, but hopefully owners were patient through the first 15 games of the season. The buy low window is slammed shut.
Nov 29 - 12:58 AM

Andre Drummond piled up 17 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 38 minutes during a tough loss to the Clippers on Wednesday, making 6-of-11 FGs and 5-of-9 FTs.

The Pistons as a team came in shooting a putrid 41.3 percent from the field, and they were without the services of starting PG Brandon Jennings again tonight. Drummond has been one of the biggest culprits, as his typically stellar FG percentage has fallen to 43.4 percent this year, but he's turned things around by shooting a combined 17-of-26 (65.4 percent) in Detroit's past two games. This was also his first game of the season with at least four combined steals and blocks, and fantasy owners' patience is beginning to pay off.
Nov 26 - 10:48 PM

Andre Drummond kept up his momentum on Tuesday with a season-high 23 points (11-of-15 FGs) in a loss vs. the Bucks, adding 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in 32 minutes.

The points, rebounds and defensive stats are great to see, but fantasy owners are probably most pleased with his 11-of-15 shooting -- remarkably, this is just the second time all season that Drummond made more than half of his shots. The career 59.7 percent shooter is just 39.7 percent through 13 games and there's nowhere to go but up, so consider making a buy-low offer (if you still can) to his frustrated fantasy owners.
Nov 25 - 10:59 PM

Andre Drummond had his most productive game in over one week against the Hawks on Friday, scoring 13 points with 16 boards and one block in 38 minutes.

For the first time all season, he only committed one foul tonight, which has been a major issue all season. Drummond did only shoot 5-of-12 from the field tonight and he's still at just 40 percent on the season. Hopefully tonight's improvement is a sign of things to come for the buy-low target.
Nov 21 - 10:41 PM

Andre Drummond hit just 2-of-10 shots for four points, 13 rebounds, zero steals and zero blocks in Wednesday's loss to the Suns.

Yuck. It's just more of the same for the struggling big man, who is this year's fantasy bust of the year thus far. His poor shooting is a mystery and it just doesn't seem like it should be that hard for Stan Van Gundy for feed him the ball in the paint and let him do work. He has just four double-doubles on the season and was averaging just 8.7 points and 11.1 rebounds before tonight's stinker. Here's to hoping he gets it figured out sooner than later.
Nov 20 - 1:57 AM

Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy is trying to keep Andre Drummond focused on his greatness, despite his recent slump.

With Drummond struggling to start the season, Van Gundy pulled him aside for a conversation about not worrying about the offensive end of the floor as much. "My point was just he's been frustrated on the offensive end a little bit, both by not converting at as high a percentage as he would like and plus not getting him the ball as much as he would like," Van Gundy said. "I just don't want him to get distracted by that from what I know he's great at every single night, which is rebounding the ball. He can't lose sight of where his greatness is." Drummond might be best served left on fantasy benches while he turns things around, but fantasy owners shouldn't hit the panic button on the 21-year-old just yet.
Nov 18 - 11:29 AM

Andre Drummond dealt with foul trouble again in Monday's loss, but still managed 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting with 10 rebounds and three blocks in 28 minutes.

Drummond is a hard guy to start unless one is punting percentages entirely, but eventually he'll get things cleaned up and tap into the upside. Stay the course.
