Andre Drummond ‘not coming back anytime soon’

Vincent Goodwill of The Detroit News:

Pistons coach Lawrence Frank was initially optimistic before Monday’s game against the Nets in terms of how Drummond would be evaluated, leading some to believe Drummond was on the way back.

But after Wednesday’s practice he cleared the air, closing the door on such sentiments.

"There’s no update, it’s gonna be slow," Frank said. "He’s not coming back anytime soon. He’s made progress. You gotta think, the doctors restricted us from doing anything. Just from a conditioning standpoint, it’s gonna take time."

As difficult as watching this team without Andre Drummond can be, the Pistons are wisely showing patience. Plus, sitting Drummond comes with the bonus of increased lottery odds.

There is no good reason to rush Drummond back, and the Pistons know that.
