The Detroit Pistons’ season has flown off the rails, but the team should get a little bit of a late boost from the return of promising rookie Andre Drummond.
The Pistons’ young center has not played since Feb. 6 because of a back injury. That streak will come to an end Friday night:
UPDATE: Andre Drummond (@dre_drummond_) is back in the lineup and will make his first career start TONIGHT #AD1 #WelcomeBackDre

No word on how that will impact the Pistons’ usual starting lineup. With just 10 games left in the regular season, though, it would make sense to start Drummond alongside Greg Monroe, with pending free agent Jason Maxiell heading to the bench.
