Pratt’s Play of the Day (November 9)

Andre Drummond

With Joel Embiid in Health and Safety Protocols, Drummond stepped up Monday vs. the Knicks, posting 14 points and a season-high 25 rebounds for 51.8 DKFP. Don’t be discouraged by his low usage rate, the UConn product does all of his damage on the glass. Tonight, the Sixers take on a Bucks team that is still missing 7’0 Brook Lopez, which gives Drummond ample opportunity to dominate on the boards. He’s well worth a spot in your lineups even with the price bump to $7,700.
