Andre Drummond plans to play against Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday, blames back injury on hotel beds


Andre Drummond didn’t play the second half of the Pistons’ loss to the Knicks last night due to a back injury, bur fear not. He says he’ll return soon. David Mayo of MLive:

"Playing the second day of a back-to-back didn’t help and Drummond said he never managed to get the back loosened up against the Knicks."It’s tough, you know, hotel beds," he said.Drummond said his current pain is unrelated to a back injury he suffered this summer and that he expects to play in Wednesday’s home game against the Brooklyn Nets."Just a bad landing, that’s all," he said. "It happens. You never know when these things come up. I just have to take care of it and I’ll be all right. I’ll be ready for Wednesday.""

Thank goodness Drummond doesn’t expect to miss any games. Can you imagine how unbearable this season would be without him? On second thought, don’t imagine that. It’s too scary a thought.
