Andre Drummond suffered a back injury this month and was expected to miss four-to-six weeks. But it looks like he’ll be back in the Detroit Pistons lineup sooner. From the Detroit Free Press:

The news also was good concerning Drummond, who suffered a stress fracture in the fifth lumbar vertebra in his back. The team designed a brace, and Paolucci said he has progressed to the point where he could be ready to hit the court within a week or so.

The original prognosis on Feb. 8 was for Drummond, a center/forward, to be out at least four to six weeks.
