Andre Drummond (concussion) is still in the concussion protocol.
Drummond didn't travel with the team to play the Wizards and the next time he'll be able to suit up is Wednesday vs. the Pelicans. This will be Drummond's second straight missed game and expect Luke Kennard, Reggie Bullock and also ZaZa Pachulia to pick up some more minutes. Pachulia is playing 26.1 minutes over his past three games and could be worth streaming vs. the Wizards.

Andre Drummond (concussion) will not play on Saturday against the Kings.
This is big news for the Kings as they lack solid strength in their frontcourt. Look for Blake Griffin to go off in this one, and players like Luke Kennard and Reggie Bullock are going to get chances at solid top-100 numbers.
January 18, 2019, 10:27 pmZaza Pachulia - C - Detroit Pistons
With Andre Drummond (nasal injury) only playing seven minutes, Zaza Pachulia picked up an unusual 28 minutes off the bench and finished Friday’s win over the Heat with nine rebounds, two assists, two steals, two points and five personal fouls.
Pachulia’s role is strictly as a low-minute big man and if Drummond has to miss any games, the Pistons are likely to just play small with Blake Griffin at center. We’re leaving him on the wire.

Andre Drummond (nasal injury) got elbowed in the face on Friday and will not return.
Drummond had some blood after an elbow from James Johnson and there’s a possibility he’s put into the league’s Concussion Protocol. We should have an update after the game. Drummond finished the game with three rebounds and a block in seven minutes.

Andre Drummond dominated on the glass on Wednesday, securing a game-high 22 rebounds while scoring 14 points on 7-of-15 shooting with one assist and one block.
Drum didn't head to the free throw line tonight, which ends up a good thing because he was unable to drag down shooting percentages in that area. He failed to record a steal tonight, which was unfortunate considering he swiped the ball three times in each of his last couple of games. Those numbers should re-emerge soon enough with him averaging 1.6 steals per game this season.

Andre Drummond struggled on Monday, scoring 15 points on 6-of-17 shooting with 13 rebounds, an assist and three steals.
Drummond struggled against the Stifle Tower, but still managed to pick up three steals on the defensive end. He's averaging 2.3 steals in the month of January to go along with 1.0 blocks. He should turn things around offensively against the Magic on Wednesday.

Andre Drummond was overshadowed by Blake Griffin in Saturday's win over the Clippers but had a big game, going 8-for-13 from the field and 4-of-5 at the free throw line to finish with 20 points while collecting 21 rebounds, three steals and a block.
Drummond's hit the skids this year as his free throw shooting has taken a step back but today he had the 2017-18 mojo going. It was nice, if unsurprising, to see him dominate the glass in this matchup. Look for Drummond to hang around the early-middle rounds this season, with room for improvement if he starts shooting more efficiently.

Andre Drummond scored 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with 11 rebounds and two assists while committing seven turnovers on Thursday.
Drummond couldn't do much without Blake Griffin tonight but still got owners a double-double. The seven turnovers were a result of the Pistons having no semblance of an offense without Point Blake.

Andre Drummond uncharacteristically shot poorly from the field on Wednesday vs. the Lakers, making just 2-of-12 shots to finish with six points, so he took his frustration out on the glass and grabbed a game-high 17 rebounds with three steals and two blocks.
He's shooting a respectable .507 from the field this season, so we can let tonight's struggles slide. He did, however, go 2-for-6 from the line, which unfortunately is closer to his .516 free throw percentage. We've seen his shooting from the stripe regress this season and as a result, Drummond's value has dropped but is hanging onto a spot in the top-50 zone on the merit of his contributions in other areas.

Andre Drummond double-doubled against the Spurs on Monday with 19 points and 14 boards to go with two assists, three steals and a block.
That's the fourth consecutive game where Drummond has gotten at least two steals and it's the third game in a row where he's swatted a shot. He's good for nightly double-doubles and although his free throw shooting has regressed from last season, he's still putting up defensive numbers to go with his league-leading 15.0 rebounds a game.

Andre Drummond had 15 points and 18 rebounds with three steals and a block vs. the Jazz on Saturday night.
Drummond bounced back with a good game in this one after making just 4-of-13 shots the last time out, despite the 1-of-4 free throw shooting tonight. He had Rudy Gobert in foul trouble and was able to control the boards for the Pistons. He is leading the league in rebounds with 15.0 rebounds per game on the season and looks to continue doing so the rest of the way.
January 2, 2019, 10:57 pmAndre Drummond - C - Detroit Pistons
Andre Drummond uncharacteristically struggled with his shooting from the field on Wednesday, connecting on 4-of-13 shots en route to his 11 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block.
This was his worst shooting night in recent memory and considering he's clocking in at .505 from the field on the season, you can chalk this one up to a bad game and move on.

Andre Drummond finished Sunday's last-second loss with 14 points and 15 rebounds on 7-of-13 from the field.
Drummond didn't have any other stats to his name in 25 minutes (four fouls were the culprit there) but mercifully stayed off the free throw line. He was on his way to a much bigger game if not for the fouls, so don't sweat this average performance. Blake Griffin was quiet with 15 points and five assists in another game that broke the wrong way for the scuffling Pistons.

Andre Drummond and his Pistons may have been blown out by the Pacers on Friday, but the big man was still able to produce 12 points on 6-of-11 shooting with 12 boards, one steal and three blocks.
He played just 26 minutes and we can blame the blowout nature of the game for his acceptable albeit less than stellar performance. Expect bigger numbers from him when the games are more tightly contested.
December 26, 2018, 9:33 pmAndre Drummond - C - Detroit Pistons
Andre Drummond put up 16 points with 11 rebounds and five defensive stats (three steals and two blocks) in a 106-95 win over the Wizards on Wednesday.
He shot 6-of-11 from the field and did not miss a free throw in his four attempts. He is top-50 on the season with free throws being the only thing to really hold him back.
