Pistons’ Andre Drummond leaves game with head/neck injury (VIDEO)

Mar 15, 2014, 8:59 PM EDT

How Detroit’s Andre Drummond staggered and went down after this hit, and how he stayed down for several minutes (all the way through the ensuing commercial break not part of the above video), is a little frightening. The medical staff brought out a stretcher but he got up under his own power and was helped back to the locker room.

Drummond will not return to the game after this blow, the team announced. The Pistons said that he will be tested more Sunday for a neck injury.

Drummond was going for a loose ball, as was Indiana’s Roy Hibbert and Paul George. It appears George bumps Drummond from behind and drives him into an inadvertent elbow from Hibbert, but one that catches Drummond pretty cleanly.

Hat tip to Zach Harper of’s Eye on Basketball for the video.

      You can thumb down all you want, I almost got that! Lost by 3 with the spread in OT. Just imagine if Dre woulda been in longer then 5 min! I would’ve looked like a genius.

      Ouch. Or if the tie had been broken at the end of regulation. Rough draw.

        Yeah. It’s all good, I still got the other surprise shocker SAC +8 on the road against CHI. And I went 4-1 in NCAA action today. Stuff happens, but at least I still walk away from the day like a bo$$.

    Andre Drummond dates Jennette McCurdy. Good person to have making your ouchies go away.

      I think they broke up and he “leaked” photos of her in lingerie after she said he was a bad kisser. High School drama.
