Andre Drummond injury: Rookie leaves game against Nets as back still not right

New, comment

Andre Drummond played five minutes in the second quarter against the Brooklyn Nets before leaving, as his nagging back injury wouldn't let him play at his usual effectiveness. The Pistons called a timeout and coach Lawrence Frank and strength and conditioning coach immediately had a long conversation with Drummond about how he was feeling.

He was immediately subbed out and and looked dejected on the bench. Drummond played only eight minutes on Monday against the New York Knicks as he complained of a sore back.

Fox Sports Detroit announced that Drummond would be out for the rest of the game shortly after he was subbed out.
