Description: The plan is for Andre Drummond to have his neck re-evaluated Friday after shootaround. If everything checks out, he could play later that night against the Suns. SOURCE: Keith Langlois, Pistons.com
Insight: Drummond missed his first game of the season Wednesday against Denver. Greg Monroe (22 points, four steals on Wednesday) will lose some of his effectiveness when Drummond (13.1 ppg, 12.8 rpg, 1.8 bpg) resurfaces.

Description: Detroit center Andre Drummond (neck) will not play on Wednesday and he's questionable to play Friday, according to beat writer Dave Pemberton.
Insight: Tests showed no structural damage in Drummond's neck. Drummond (13.1 ppg, 12.8 rpg, 1.8 bpg) took a spill after bumping into Roy Hibbert Saturday against Indiana. Jonas Jerebko and Charlie Villanueva each will see increased minutes, though neither is fantasy worthy. Greg Monroe will shift over to center and should be guaranteed double-digit rebounds.

Description: Detroit center Andre Drummond suffered a head injury Saturday against Indiana. SOURCE: Keith Langlois, Pistons.com
Insight: Drummond got tangled up with Paul George and Roy Hibbert while going for a loose ball and appeared to take a shot from Hibbert. He was on the ground for several minutes before being helped off the court. Though the Pistons haven't made an official announcement yet, it looks like Drummond will be out for the rest of tonight's game. For now, Detroit will go with Greg Monroe at center, Josh Smith at power forward and Kyle Singler at the three.

Insight: Drummond (13.2 ppg, 12.9 rpg) has finished with exactly 16 points and 17 rebounds in each of his last two games. He also blocked two shots Saturday, the same number he had Wednesday versus San Antonio. Now how's that for consistency?

Description: Detroit center Andre Drummond delivered 16 points and 22 rebounds Friday in a win against Brooklyn.

Insight: And get this: he shot 3-of-4 from the free throw line! Drummond (12.6 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.8 bpg) is quickly becoming the best young center in the NBA. His emergence this year might ultimately make Greg Monroe (14.2 ppg, 8.8 rpg) expendable.
 
1/24/2014 10:27:00 PM
Description: Detroit center Andre Drummond had a monster game Friday against the Pelicans.
Insight: Drummond ended up with 21 points, 20 rebounds and two blocks. He was his usual shaky self from the line (3-of-6) but aside from that, Drummond didn't give fantasy owners much to complain about on Friday. The 20-year-old was recently chosen as one of the 28 players on Team USA's preliminary roster for the World Cup of Basketball to be played later this summer.

Description: It didn't affect the outcome much but Pistons center Andre Drummond collected 15 points and 14 boards Sunday in a blowout loss to the Grizzlies.
Insight: Another day, another double-double for the 20-year-old UConn product. Drummond's offensive game is limited to mostly dunks and layups but at least he's been consistent. Detroit's next game is Tuesday night against the Knicks.
