Andre Drummond misses shootaround

Keith Langlois of Pistons.com:

Andre Drummond did not participate in today’s shootaround. Status still uncertain for tonight’s game with San Antonio.

The Pistons should look out for Andre Drummond’s long-term health above all else, so it’d fine to hold him out tonight. But, man, Pistons games aren’t as fun when he’s off the court.

    Drummond said the pain is near his tailbone.  If that’s the case, this is a different type of injury.  The lumbar vertebrae is normally where athletes and people in general feel pain, herniate disks, and develop arthritis.  I’m guessing his injury is not a “back injury” at all and it’s probably unrelated to basketball.

    Well its not like we’re in playoff contention, Drummond has played great thus far, might as well give the kid a break. We’re not going anywhere. I’d rather sit him for a month then risk aggravating an injury. I don’t mind him sitting out either, gives us an extended look at Slava and whether he was worth that contract and what exactly it is that made Joe D give it to him.

    Broken tailbone.  He’s expected to be out 4-6 weeks.

    Ouch. The only concern here is that Andre Drummond get 100% healthy this summer but what a shitty end to his fun rookie season. If Joe Dumars tries to make a panic move to replace Andre with another big and push for the playoffs he should be fired immediately.
