Drummond played just 26 minutes while in foul trouble Friday, eventually fouling out. He was going against a bruising matchup in Marcin Gortat, so he struggled to get involved offensively as well. That said, his primary fantasy value is that of a rebounder, which he did well.
Drummond collected eight points (3-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, two blocks and one steal through 22 minutes during Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Drummond had a great defensive performance Wednesday, like he typically does, considering he averaged 13.8 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks during the 2016-17 season. He and the Pistons will go up against the Wizards on Friday, whom he struggled against last season, averaging only 8.7 points and 9.7 rebounds over their three meetings.
Andre Drummond scored eight points Wednesday on 3-of-9 shooting as the Detroit Pistons defeated the Charlotte Hornets 102-90. Drummond pulled down 13 rebounds and had four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +8 in his 22:21 of playing time. He added two blocks and one steal.
Drummond, who finished second in the NBA last season with 13.8 rebounds per game, passed Dave DeBusschere for sixth place on the franchise's career rebounding list.
Drummond collected 18 points (7-13 FG, 4-6 FT), 22 rebounds, seven assists and one block across 36 minutes in Friday's 107-103 loss to the Bucks.
Drummond was his usual self in his final tune-up before the regular season opener, leading the team in both rebounds and assists Friday night. He snatched nine offensive rebounds alone, which shows his potential to get easy put-back points and bolster his stats this season. The Pistons let all their starters play extended minutes in the final preseason game in an attempt to get them stretched out and ready for Wednesday's opener against the Hornets, but Drummond still led the way in that category as well with 36 minutes. He is ready to produce big numbers for his team as the focal point in the paint for this season.
