Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Not joining team for in-market camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Cavaliers head coach J.B. Bickerstaff said Wednesday that Drummond wouldn't join the team for its in-market minicamp this month due to a "personal situation," Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

So long as Drummond is able to complete his normal offseason conditioning work at home, his absence from the minicamp shouldn't affect his readiness for the Cavaliers' 2020-21 training camp, which may not begin until December or January. Already on the books for the upcoming season after informing the Cavaliers he would exercise his $28.75 million player option, Drummond should open the season as Cleveland's starting center. After coming over in a deal with Detroit at the trade deadline, Drummond appeared in eight games for Cleveland and averaged 17.5 points, 11.1 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.4 blocks and 1.3 steals in 28.3 minutes per contest.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Undergoes LASIK surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond underwent LASIK eye surgery on Wednesday, per his verified Twitter account.

There isn't much here that's relevant for fantasy unless Drummond wasn't wearing contacts when he played. Even if that's the case, it's unlikely to turn him into a proficient three-point shooter, or even free-throw shooter, overnight.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Will exercise player option
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond said Tuesday that he will exercise his $28.75 million player option for the 2020-21 season, reports.

Drummond revealed the decision on Tuesday's episode of ESPN's "Le Batard & Friends -- STUpodity," stating that he will "definitely" be returning to the Cavaliers next season. Considering the amount of money involved, the announcement shouldn't come as a surprise, and Drummond will still have an opportunity to hit unrestricted free agency after the conclusion of the 2020-21 campaign. The Cavaliers acquired the big man in a trade with Detroit back in February and immediately inserted him as their starting center, with Drummond averaging 17.5 points, 11.1 boards, 1.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.4 blocks in 28.3 minutes per game over his eight appearances with Cleveland before the NBA season was suspended.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Posts well-rounded stat line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond dropped 21 points (8-14 FG, 5-9 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 35 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Bulls.

In his last game, Drummond returned from a three-game absence due to a calf issue, and dropped 28 points, 17 boards and three blocks, guiding the Cavaliers to a victory over the Spurs. This game, while not quite as dominant, was still a solid outing for the 26-year old, as he produced a full stat line against the Bulls' young frontcourt. Dealing with some sidelining since joining the Cavs, Drummond has tumbled down the rankings a bit recently, but, assuming he stays healthy and on the court, he should bounce back down the stretch - even in a potentially crowded frontcourt.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Huge outing in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) registered 28 points (11-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 6-11 FT), 17 boards, three blocks and an assist across 33 minutes Sunday in the Cavaliers' 132-129 overtime victory over the Spurs.

The monstrous double-double to go with the blocks was right on par with what Drummond was routinely offering as a member of the Pistons earlier this season. Though his calf didn't appear to be bothering him, Drummond didn't push past 30 minutes until the extra period, which isn't the most encouraging sign, given that top backup Tristan Thompson (eye) exited in the first half and didn't return. If Thompson is back in action for the Cavs' next game Tuesday in Chicago, Drummond could be looking at more of a split of the minutes at center. In his five games with the Cavs in which Thompson was fully healthy, Drummond averaged 12.8 points, 10.4 boards, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks in 24.4 minutes.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) will play Sunday against San Antonio, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

Drummond missed the last three games, but he'll be back in action Sunday and could return to the starting five. Drummond has taken on a slightly lesser role since coming to Cleveland, with his minutes typically settling in the mid-20s.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: On track to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Spurs, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

Drummond has been sidelined the past three games with a strained left calf, but his probable listing for Sunday implies that he may have been a candidate to play in Saturday's 104-102 loss to the Nuggets had it not been the front end of a back-to-back set. The 26-year-old should reclaim his usual spot on the top unit Sunday, but he may be in store for a split of the minutes at center with Tristan Thompson.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Won't play Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) is out Saturday against the Nuggets, Spencer Davies of reports.

Drummond will miss his third game in a row while dealing with a strained left calf. However, the Cavaliers will at least be getting Tristan Thompson (knee) and Alfonzo McKinnie (plantar fasciitis) back for Saturday's action.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Questionable Saturday vs. Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) is questionable for Saturday's contest against the Nuggets.

A strained left calf has kept Drummond out over the past two days, though he may be able to make a return Saturday. More information could arrive following the Cavaliers' morning shootaround.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Goes through practice Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) was a full practice participant Friday, Spencer Davies of reports.

The 26-year-old has missed the last two games with a left calf strain but appears to be trending toward his return. Drummond should still be considered questionable for Saturday's matchup with Denver until the team provides an official injury designation.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Out again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) is out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

The 26-year-old will now miss his second straight game due to a left calf strain. Drummond's next chance to return will be Saturday against the Nuggets. Tristan Thompson (knee) or Larry Nance will likely get a start depending on the former's status on Wednesday.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Officially out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) will not play Monday against the Jazz, Spencer Davies of reports.

As expected, Drummond will miss Monday's game after aggravating the calf injury that forced him to miss a pair of games at the end of February. With both Drummond and Tristan Thompson (knee) unavailable, Kevin Love and Larry Nance will start at center and power forward, respectively.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Doubtful Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond is listed as doubtful for Monday's tilt with the Jazz due to a calf concern, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Drummond was able to play 36 minutes in Saturday's win over Indiana, but it appears that he aggravated the calf injury that kept him out of the prior two games. If Drummond's ultimately held out, look for Larry Nance to enter the starting lineup, considering that the usual backup center, Tristan Thompson (knee) has been ruled out.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Fills stat sheet in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) went for 27 points (12-21 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, four steals and one block in 36 minutes during Saturday's 113-104 loss to the Pacers.

After missing the last two games with a calf concern, Drummond slotted back into the starting five and turned in his best outing since being acquired by the Cavaliers on Feb. 6. The center offered the typical scoring, rebounding and defensive-stats production fantasy managers had benefited from while he was a member of the Pistons, but it's somewhat difficult to bank on Drummond replicating these lines with regularity. Prior to Saturday, Drummond had been essentially splitting minutes at center with former starter Tristan Thompson, who wasn't available against Indiana due to a knee issue. Unless Thompson's injury proves to be a long-term concern, Drummond may struggle to reach the 30-minute mark moving forward.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Will play Saturday vs. Pacers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) will play Saturday against the Pacers, James Rapien of 92.3 The Fan reports.

After missing two games with a calf strain, Drummond is feeling healthy enough to play. With Tristan Thompson (knee) sidelined, Drummond could see extra minutes. Over the past four games, he's averaging 11.3 points, 9.5 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal in 23.3 minutes.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Deemed probable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummon (calf) is considered probable for Saturday's tilt with Indiana, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Drummond appears to be nearing a return from a two-game absence due to a strained left calf. The team should provide a further update on his availability prior to tipoff.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Out again Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) has been ruled out for Friday's game against New Orleans, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Drummond is set to miss his second straight contest due to a left calf strain. Tristan Thompson should draw another start at center in Drummond's place.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond (calf) will not play Wednesday against the 76ers.

Drummond is nursing a strained left calf and will miss at least Wednesday's game against Philadelphia as a result. In his absence, the Cavaliers will likely lean more heavily on a combination of Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance. Drummond's next chance to play will come Friday in New Orleans.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Playing time remains reduced
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond accumulated 13 points (5-14 FG, 2-4 3pt, 1-4 FT), six rebounds, one steal and one block across 24 minutes during Monday's 125-119 victory over the Heat.

Over the past four contests, Drummond is averaging just 23.3 minutes, resulting in 11.3 points, 9.8 rebounds, 1.3 blocks, 1.0 steal and 1.0 assist. His reduction in playing time since joining the Cavaliers is a major blow to fantasy owners who have come to expect league-leading rebound numbers from Drummond, not to mention nearly 20 points per game. It's unclear what the Cavaliers' motivation is for keeping Drummond's minutes so low, but there's no indication it will change anytime soon unless Tristan Thompson gets bought out.

Cavaliers' Andre Drummond: Double-double in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Drummond scored 14 points (6-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding 15 rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 127-105 win over the Hawks.

The Cavs' frontcourt dominated all night, as three different Cleveland bigs (Drummond, Larry Nance and Tristan Thompson) each came up with double-doubles. Drummond has two straight double-doubles to begin his Cavs tenure and seven straight including his final games as a Piston, and, as yet, it doesn't seem as though the trade will have a big impact on his production.
