C - CLE
Andre Drummond managed 13 points (6-13 FG, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, three assists, one steal, and four turnovers in Wednesday's double-overtime win against Brooklyn.
Drummond left the game with four minutes left in the fourth frame, and didn't even see any action after that, despite two overtime periods. Newly acquired Jarrett Allen looked very good in his debut with the Cavaliers, and while it's only one game, this is surely a bad sign for Drummond's fantasy outlook. His monster double-doubles may become a thing of the past, but hopefully he can at least average modest double-doubles going forward.
Andre Drummond cruised to the tune of 33 points (10-18 FG, 0-1 3PT, 13-19 FT), 23 rebounds, three assists, two steals, two blocks, and two turnovers in Friday night's win against New York.
The Knicks simply had no answer for the big man tonight. This was Drummond's best performance of the season thus far, and it came at an optimal time for fantasy owners, as they soon likely have to get acclimated to less dominant stat lines with the eventual emergence of Jarrett Allen. Cavaliers GM Koby Altman assured Drummond on Thursday that his role would remain the same, but it's tough to envision him maintaining this level of production going forward. Either way, he should still be a beast on the boards.
Andre Drummond (achilles) will be good-to-go on Friday when the Cavaliers take on the Knicks.
Drummond was originally listed as probable for this game and has seen an upgrade to his status. With Jarrett Allen not ready to make his team debut, Drummond will still be the main force in the paint for the Cavs after missing a game due to achilles soreness. You can routinely count on Drummond for 30 plus minutes each and every night and he remains a solid option in all formats on Friday.
Cavs C Andre Drummond (achilles) is listed as probable against the New York Knicks on Friday.
Drummond has been a double-double machine this season, averaging 18.0 points and 15.1 rebounds across 31.5 minutes. The veteran center should be in starting lineups in all fantasy formats despite the recent acquisition of Jarret Allen from the Brooklyn Nets, which was a transaction embedded within the James Harden trade package. The Cavaliers are dealing with numerous injuries and will be heavily reliant upon Drummond if he suits up on Friday against the Knicks.
Cavaliers C Andre Drummond (Achilles) will not play in Tuesday’s contest against the Jazz.
Drummond was a game-time decision leading into Tuesday’s game, but was ultimately ruled out. His next chance to return will be Friday against the Knicks. Look for JaVale McGee to see an expanded role while Drummond is sidelined.
