    What to watch for

  • David Mayo of MLive:

    "Andre Drummond said he will play tonight for the Detroit Pistons when they face the Phoenix Suns at US Airways Center."

    Best of all, I’m glad Drummond is OK after a scary-looking injury.

    And fear not, tanking supporters. Though Drummond obviously contributes significantly individually, his return will bring back the Pistons’ biggest tanking weapon of all: the Josh SmithGreg Monroe-Drummond lineups.

    A bigger tanking concern lies with the Suns, who’ve lost four of seven, including a home loss to Cleveland. As their playoff chances dwindle, might they be losing focus? I sure hope not, and considering they’ve won three of their last four following a three-game losing streak, I think they’re getting back on track.
