Pistons' Morris, Drummond part of All-No Rest Team
As the NBA playoffs approach, the topic over resting star players begins to intensify.
But while some players, like Cavaliers' LeBron James, are taking time off, others are proving to be ironmen for their respective teams.
In an article by Fox Sports' Brett Pollakoff, Pistons center Andre Drummond and forward Marcus Morris are among 16 players on the NBA's All-No Rest Team who have appeared in at least 230 games since the start of the 2015 season.
Morris is tied for the third-most game appearances at 233 along with Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Clippers center DeAndre Jordan, Jazz forward Joe Ingles and Raptors forward P.J. Tucker.
"Morris missed two games last year and one the year before and has had to skip only one to this point of the season," Pollakoff wrote. "He's averaging 14 points per game in 32.9 minutes per contest this year."
Drummond is tied for the second-most appearances at 235 with Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins and Lakers forward Corey Brewer.
"Drummond falls into the young guy category like some others on this list, but he also doesn't play as many minutes," Pollakoff wrote. "The 23-year-old has missed only one game over the past three seasons, while leading the league in rebounding last year playing just 32.9 minutes per contest."
Nuggets center Mason Plumlee, Rockets forward Trevor Ariza, Rockets guard James Harden and Cavaliers center Tristan Thompson topped the list with 236 game appearances.
