Injured Pistons Andre Drummond (stress fracture lower back) and Brandon Knight (sprained left ankle) worked out after the morning shoot-around Monday, but no timetable has been set for either's return.
Drummond, who has missed 19 games after suffering an injured fifth lumbar vertebra, worked on his post moves after the shoot-around. Coach Lawrence Frank said the team still was monitoring Drummond's progress.
"For the first time he was able to do some team-related activities today," Frank said. "He got up and down the court a little bit, went through shoot-around. I think anytime you start to reintegrate a guy, that's always a positive thing. I think he's definitely on the right track.
"Obviously, we've been very conservative with this for very intelligent reasons. I think we'll just continue to up his work level every day. Eventually what we'll have to do is ... getting another CT scan or final confirmation to see if the stress fracture is healed before we take it to another level."
Knight, who suffered his injury at Utah on March 11, was seen briskly walking across the practice floor, pulling strength and conditioning coach Arnie Kander, who was offering resistance via a long band.
Frank said Knight still was experiencing some discomfort on the outer part of the ankle and wasn't 100%.
