Drummond posted nine points (3-5 FG, 3-6 FT), six rebounds, a steal and a blocked shot across 22 minutes in Thursday's 118-94 loss to the Clippers.
After a decent first half, Drummond rattled off four fouls in the third quarter, giving way to an increased run from Montrezl Harrell. The veteran big man has always been a foul magnet, but he needs to decrease the aggression on a team that already commits many unforced errors. With Anthony Davis in desperate need of some relief, the Lakers will depend on Drummond to help them stem the losses, which are piling up.
Drummond delivered 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-4 FT), 11 rebounds, an assist and a steal across 26 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Raptors.
Drummond has recorded four double-doubles over his last six appearances and has settled in well as the team's starting center. He's not expected to carry the team in terms of scoring with Anthony Davis and LeBron James both back in the lineup, but the fact that he's scored in double digits in six of his last eight games is certainly encouraging -- considering the rebounds and defensive stats are regularly there as well.
Drummond totaled 17 points (7-11 FG, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds and two blocked shots across 24 minutes in a loss to Sacramento on Friday.
Drummond's time on the court was limited due to five fouls, but he was still able to put up a solid stat line while playing alongside both LeBron James and Anthony Davis for the first time since joining the Lakers. His five-game streak of double-digit rebounds was snapped in the contest, but he made up for it with 17 points and two blocks. Though Los Angeles couldn't pull off the win, it was promising to see the trio take the court together for the first time, and the Lakers are likely to give Drummond plenty of run as they fight to stay out of the play-in tournament as the regular season winds down.
Drummond registered 17 points (8-12 FG, 1-4 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 20 minutes during Wednesday's 116-107 loss to the Wizards.
The 27-year-old played his lowest minute total since March 31 but still managed to post his 23rd double-double of the season. Drummond has yet to play more than 30 minutes in his first 11 games as a Laker, but he's still averaging a solid 11.9 points, 10.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 0.9 blocks in that span. The ninth-year center will look to make it three double-doubles in a row Friday at home against the Kings.
Drummond went for 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 25 minutes of Monday's win over the Magic.
Drummond has grabbed double-digit rebounds in seven of 10 games while also collecting steals in nine outings since joining the Lakers. His scoring has taken a dip since heading out West, even with LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis missing time, but Drummond's ability to crash the boards and impact the game defensively make him valuable both in real life and in fantasy.
Drummond (toe) is playing and starting Saturday against the Mavericks, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Drummond (toe) is probable for Saturday's contest against the Mavericks.

Drummond produced 14 points (5-10 FG, 4-4 FT), 19 rebounds, three assists, three blocked shots and a steal across 31 minutes in Thursday's 115-110 loss to the Mavericks.
Drummond recorded his highest rebound total as a Laker in the loss, and with a respectable contribution in every major category, it was arguably his best performance of the year. Perhaps the return of Anthony Davis sparked the fire of competition into Drummond's heart, although it's likely that the two will be spending plenty of time on the court together. They began Thursday's game as the starting frontcourt, and once Davis is fully healthy, they'll team up as one of the league's most dangerous duos in the paint.
Drummond (toe) is listed as available for Thursday's game against Dallas.
Drummond will play despite a toe bruise and will start alongside Anthony Davis (calf) for the first time. Drummond's workload could decrease once Davis gets cleared for normal minutes, though that could be several games.
Drummond (toe) is probable for Thursday's game against the Mavericks.
Drummond continues to deal with a bruised toe, but he's not expected to miss Thursday's game. The bigger news is that Anthony Davis (calf) may return. That could cut into Drummond's usage, though the two should be able to share the court often.
Drummond posted eight points (3-12 FG, 2-5 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and two steals across 28 minutes in Monday's 111-97 loss to the Jazz.
Anthony Davis' return is imminent, and it will be interesting to see how the Lakers utilize Drummond once he rejoins the starting five. The change will have a negative effect on Markieff Morris' production, but Davis and Drummond will likely share the court and create a size mismatch for several teams.
Drummond (toe) will play Monday against Utah, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.

Drummond (toe) is probable for Monday's game against the Jazz, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

The 27-year-old played 30 minutes in his return to the starting lineup after missing a game due to a bruised toe. Drummond had a rough two-game stretch before missing Thursday's game, averaging 3.5 points, 11.0 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 0.5 blocks in that span.

Drummond (toe) is listed as probable for Saturday's matchup with the Jazz.
Drummond's status comes with a grain of salt, as he had the same designation before Thursday's game versus the Celtics and ultimately got ruled out. Still, he is seemingly on track to return at this point. Confirmation on his status should come closer to tip-off.
Drummond (toe) will not play Thursday against the Celtics, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.
Drummond had been listed as probable Thursday despite a right toe bruise, but he apparently took a turn for the worse and has now been ruled out. Marc Gasol will be in line for a bigger workload in Thursday's game.
Drummond is probable for Thursday's game against the Celtics with a bruised right big toe, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.
The 27-year-old initially suffered the injury in his Lakers debut March 31, and he's not yet fully recovered.

Drummond (elbow) is available for Tuesday's game against the Hornets, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
The 27-year-old was considered questionable with a left elbow issue, but the injury won't prevent him from taking the court Tuesday. Drummond should start at center while Marc Gasol (hamstring) works in a reserve role.
