Andre Drummond made 12-of-15 shots to score 25 points on Wednesday, adding 17 rebounds, four steals and two assists in 38 minutes.
Advice: 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.
Andre Drummond scored 25 points Wednesday, going 12 of 15 from the field, as the Detroit Pistons fell to the Toronto Raptors 96-91. Drummond grabbed 17 rebounds and dished out two assists, tallying a plus-minus of -6 in his 37:37 on the floor. He tacked on four steals.
Advice: Drummond bounced back nicely after he had just three points on 1-of-7 shooting in his previous game against the Hornets.
Andre Drummond had a tough day on Monday, hitting 1-of-7 shots for three points, 10 rebounds, five assists, three steals and a block in 34 minutes.
Advice: The scoring was a disaster, but he helped make up for it with the assists and steals. He was in some foul trouble and just didn't have it today, which was surprising considering he'd been playing well and had 21 points, 15 boards and three blocks on Saturday. It speaks to what kind of season Dwight Howard is having for the Hornets, as he simply dominated Drummond in this one.
Andre Drummond scored three points Monday on 1-of-7 shooting as the Detroit Pistons lost to the Charlotte Hornets 118-107. Drummond pulled down 10 rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 33:42 on the floor. He added one block and three steals.

Andre Drummond had another big all-around game on Saturday with 21 points (8-of-13 FGs, 5-of-6 FTs), 15 rebounds, four assists, three blocks, two steals and one turnover.
Advice: Drummond committed just one turnover and two fouls in 34 minutes, and it's safe to conclude that his rib injury is no longer a concern. He missed one game on Jan. 6, but in the three games since he's averaging a stellar 19.7 points, 16.3 boards, 4.0 assists, 2.0 steals and 2.0 blocks. That was against a trio of vulnerable frontcourts, though, and he'll draw a tougher matchup vs. Dwight Howard on Monday. Trainers did look at Drummond's right foot in the second quarter tonight but he looked fine after halftime, so we'll leave him off the injury report.
Andre Drummond punished the Nets in the paint on Wednesday, racking up 22 points, 20 rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes.
Advice: Drummond did whatever he wanted vs. starting Tyler Zeller and backups Jarrett Allen and Jahlil Okafor tonight, but that's not a big surprise. The Nets are giving up the third-most rebounds to opposing frontcourts (only the Kings and Lakers yield more), and this was a perfect matchup for Drummond. He hit 9-of-15 FGs and 4-of-6 FTs, and should also fare well vs. Robin Lopez and the Bulls on Saturday.

Advice: After sitting out twice in a three-game span due to sore ribs, Drummond has racked up 38 points and 34 rebounds in two games since. Also a strong source of assists, steals and blocks, the All-Star candidate appears safe to reinsert back into fantasy lineups.
Andre Drummond (sore ribs) finished Monday's tough road loss with 16 points, 14 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 39 minutes.
Advice: The rib injury is a question of pain tolerance for Drummond, but he looked great in heavy minutes during a very physical game tonight. Five of his boards came on the offensive glass, and the only negatives were four turnovers and an 0-of-2 mark at the FT line. He should be ready to go vs. the Nets on Wednesday, but owners should still confirm his status prior to tip-off.
