In the Pistons 93-90 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night, Andre Drummond was forced to sit out of the entire second half with the same back soreness that had kept him out of the second half against the Knicks on Monday night. Drummond had reportedly blamed the sore back on a bad hotel bed during the Pistons trip to New York, but after the game against Brooklyn the rookie talked more about the cause of the injury.
Said Drummond: "My back has been terrible. I fell on it the wrong way in the Laker game. I felt good. After I took that charge, it just hit me again. It is tough that I couldn't be out there to help my teammates tonight for the second game. Like I said, I'm just going to take care of the situation and I'll be back."
