Injured Pistons Andre Drummond (stress fracture lower back) and Brandon Knight (sprained left ankle) worked out after the morning shoot-around Monday, but no timetable has been set for either’s return.
“For the first time he was able to do some team-related activities today,” Frank said [of Drummond]. “He got up and down the court a little bit, went through shoot-around. I think anytime you start to reintegrate a guy, that’s always a positive thing. I think he’s definitely on the right track.
“Obviously, we’ve been very conservative with this for very intelligent reasons. I think we’ll just continue to up his work level every day. Eventually what we’ll have to do is … getting another CT scan or final confirmation to see if the stress fracture is healed before we take it to another level.”
