Andre Drummond was a game-time decision for Detroit's game versus the Dallas Mavericks in Mexico City on Thursday after suffering an allergic reaction to an avocado.

Pistons head coach Dwane Casey said Drummond's eyes swelled shut after consuming the fruit, making it difficult for the 26-year-old to insert his contacts.

Fortunately for the Pistons, Drummond will be able to suit up.

The UConn product is averaging 17.5 points and 16.7 rebounds through 24 games this season.
