Andre Drummond led the Pistons in their 113-109 win over the Pacers on Monday with 26 points and 16 rebounds while chipping in an assist, two steals and three blocks.
Drummond has been feasting on easy matchups and although Myles Turner is a decent defender, the Pacers struggle against dominant centers. He took care of business tonight, going 12-for-21 from the floor and mitigated the free throw damage by only going 2-for-4 at the line.

Alex Caruso (pelvis bone contusion) is being listed as day-to -day.
The MRI didn’t reveal anything too serious and Caruso shouldn’t be out long. He’ll should have a spot in the Lakers’ rotation so he’ll be worth a late round flier in deeper leagues.

Cam Reddish will play around 20 minutes in the Hawks season opener vs. the Pistons.
If Kevin Huerter (knee) isn’t healthy enough to play then Reddish could get the start but we’ll have to wait and see. He’s worth a late round flier in most drafts.

Kevin Huerter (right knee pain) practiced in full on Sunday.
This is great news and if he’s healthy enough he’ll likely start in the Hawks season opener. He’s a 3-point specialist and should have the opportunity to shoot many of them on this Hawks team.

Hawks coach Lloyd Pierce is undecided on who the starting shooting guard will be for the season opener vs. the Pistons.
It’ll likely be Kevin Huerter (knee) if he’s deemed healthy enough to play. However, DeAndre Bembry and Cam Reddish have a shot at it too.

De’Andre Hunter will start in the Hawks’ season opener vs. the Pistons.
This is great news for Hunter and his owners as it shows how much confidence they have in the rookie. He’ll likely be up and down throughout the season but he’ll have plenty of opportunity on this Hawks team.

Andre Robertson (left knee) went through contact practice on Sunday.
Coach Billy Donovan still didn’t have a solid answer regarding Robertson’s availability for the Thunder’s season opener vs. the Jazz but this is good news. He’ll be a very big piece of OKC’s defensive scheme but won’t really provide much for fantasy owners outside of steals and a few blocks.

Coach Alvin Gentry wants to stick with J.J. Redick to begin the season .
This is good news for Redick as he’ll continue to start even with Zion Williamson out. The Pels will likely move Brandon Ingram down to power forward and keep the rest of the lineup the same.

The Pistons want to award Christian Wood with a regular season roster spot for his strong preseason play.
Wood and Joe Johnson had been competing throughout the entire preseason and the Pistons might end up keeping them both. The Pistons have got to move some things around to make him fit but he’ll be a valuable piece for them to hang onto going into the season.

Moe Wagner (sore back) missed Sunday's practice but is expected to return soon.
Wagner left Friday's preseason finale after taking a hard fall, but the Wizards think it's a short-term injury. He's a decent late-round target if you're in a 14- or 16-team league and should play a legitimate role backing up Thomas Bryant, Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura.

Austin Rivers is dealing with shoulder soreness but is expected to play in Thursday's regular-season opener.
It's the first we've heard of Rivers' injury, so we expect him to be fine. He's not much of a fantasy target but will carry a big role with the Rockets likely losing Gerald Green for the season.
