DETROIT (97.1 The Ticket) - The Detroit Pistons say Andre Drummond will be out of the line-up for approximately four to six weeks due to a stress fracture of his fifth lumbar vertebra.

Drummond has been placed in a custom brace and activity levels will be modified while the injury heals. He will be re-evaluated on a regular basis. Team doctors anticipate a full recovery with rest and rehabilitation.
