Drew (back) will start in Wednesday's summer league contest against the Pistons.
Drew left Monday's game with back spasms, however the injury was nothing serious as he is back in the starting lineup on Wednesday. Thus far, Drew has averaged 9.3 points and 3.3 assists in 24.7 minutes over three summer league games.
Drew is dealing with back spasms and won't return to Monday's summer league matchup against the Pelicans, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.
Drew picked up the start at point guard and finished with nine points (4-6 FG, 1-3 3Pt), one rebound, two assists and one block across 15 minutes prior to going down with the injury. The exact severity is unclear at this point, but there's a chance Drew misses more time depending on how the back feels over the coming few days.
Drew played just a minor role for the duration of his first 10-day deal with the Pelicans, averaging 3.0 points and 1.2 assists across 9.8 minutes. However, he did see his most extensive action of the season Saturday against the Rockets with Rajon Rondo (wrist) sitting out, notching nine points, three assists and one rebound across 19 minutes. With Rondo questionable going into Tuesday's contest, Drew could be in line for increased minutes once again off the bench now that he's been re-upped to another 10-day contract. That said, he's still not someone to target in fantasy leagues.
Drew had six points (2-3 FG, 2-2 3Pt), two assists, and one rebound in 13 minutes during Tuesday's 115-105 win over the Mavericks.
Drew scored his first points for the Pelicans, this after going scoreless in his first two appearances. He had only seen 10 minutes combined versus the Rockets and Celtics on Saturday and Sunday, but with Jrue Holiday (illness) sidelined, Drew was called upon to play a bigger role. The team is back in action on Wednesday versus the Pacers and Thursday versus the Lakers, and Drew would stand to benefit if Holiday's illness lingers.
Drew has spent the bulk of the year with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, where he holds averages of 11.7 points, 7.5 assists and 4.6 rebounds per game. The 28-year-old is expected to finalize his contract Thursday, so at this point it's unclear whether he'll be available off the bench for the evening's matchup with the Spurs in San Antonio.
