Andre Drummond Exits Lakers Debut vs. Bucks with Foot InjuryApril 1, 2021
Andre Drummond's debut with the Los Angeles Lakers has ended early.
The center suffered a right big toe contusion during Wednesday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, the Lakers announced. X-rays came back negative.
Drummond, who joined the Lakers following his contract buyout by the Cleveland Cavaliers, posted four points, two assists, a rebound and a block in 14 minutes of play.
In his first full season with the Cavs, Drummond had been nothing short of a star. He averaged 17.5 points and 13.5 rebounds per game through 25 appearances with Cleveland, though the team began holding him out of games in mid-February in an effort to find a trade partner before the deadline.
If Drummond is forced to miss significant time, it will be a tough start to his career with the Lakers, who are already playing without LeBron James and Anthony Davis due to injury.
