Pistons fans reasonably got their hopes up on Sunday night and Monday morning when one Pistons beat writer tweeted his thought that Andre Drummond might not only play but start Tuesday night's game. Drummond didn't. In fact, he was ruled out Monday afternoon, mere hours after my post and more than 24 hours before tip off.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool me... you can't get fooled again.
Until another Pistons beat reporter named Vincent tweeted his unconfirmed thoughts about Drummond's return:
Nothing official, but I think Drummond might play Friday. #Pistons— Vincent Ellis (@Vincent_Ellis56) March 27, 2013
Waiiiiit a minute. There's nothing here. We knew Drummond "might" play Friday. He's "day to day." He's been fully participating in practices. He's been dunking for several days, according to Ellis.
He's instagramming at an incredible rate.
Drummond might play on Friday. But then again, like I said on Monday, he might not.
I hope he does.
