8492398Well, there is some bad news for the Detroit Pistons. Here’s Adrian Wojnarowski from Yahoo! Sports with the news.

Andre Drummond has played really well in limited time with the Pistons. He’s not playing much thus far because the coaching staff wants to bring him along slowly. Thus far, Drummond is averaging 7.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks in less than 20 minutes per game. Those are impressive numbers and if he were playing more time, he would have had a chance at the Rookie of the Year award. But he has so much potential and could end up becoming an excellent player for the Pistons.

Drummond backs up Greg Monroe, who has been a very good player for Detroit. But Detroit will probably pair Monroe up with Drummond as soon as Drummond gets more experience under his belt. A back injury at any age, even at 19, is scary and debilitating. Hopefully, it’s nothing too serious but back injuries have left players a shell of their former selves. One example today? Look at Dwight Howard play for the Los Angeles Lakers. Even though Howard leads the league in rebounding, he’s looked listless for most of the season and can’t put up athletic dunks because of his bad back (not to mention his bad shoulder, too).

With Drummond out, the Pistons may use Viacheslav Kravtsov as a stopgap in the middle. They can also go small and use Jason Maxiell or even guys like Charlie Villanueva and Jonas Jerebko at the center position. The Pistons are 18-32 at the moment and at the 10th seed in the Eastern Conference. However, they are eight games behind the eighth-seeded Milwaukee Bucks, who are 25-23.

The Pistons play the San Antonio Spurs on Friday night. The Spurs are currently on an 11-game winning streak and have the best record in the league at 39-11. Detroit has lost their last three games.

UPDATE: Vince Goodwill, the Detroit Pistons beat writer just tweeted that Drummond will be out 4-to-6 weeks. He’s going to receive a custom brace and will not need surgery.
