Pistons using bongos in Drummond's rehab
08:08 AM ET 02.12 | So much for cutting-edge machines and tactics when it comes to center Andre Drummond's rehab. Try bongos. While other Pistons were getting in some light jogging following this morning's shootaround at the Palace practice facility, Drummond sat there beating on a bongo ... badly. "This is my rehab," Drummond said as he walked away, carrying the drum. Drummond is out four to six weeks because of a bad back, and the drum is a way for the Pistons to keep the rookie center engaged and feeling like he's still part of the team. Yeah, there actually is a method to strength-and-conditioning coach Arnie Kander's bongo madness. Playing the drum requires good posture, so it helps the body's core.
