UPDATE: Drummond is listed as available to play tonight vs. the Mavs despite having an allergic reaction to an avocado earlier in the day.

Those damn millennials, amirite? Detroit Pistons center Andre Drummond got into the avocado craze a little late and now he’s a game-time decision Thursday vs. the Mavericks due to an allergic reaction.

Drummond’s eyes are apparently puffy and he may not be able to play tonight. Jokes aside, this is a pretty big deal for fantasy basketball. If Drummond can’t go, Blake Griffin ($6,700) becomes a more appealing play on DraftKings. Markieff Morris ($3,200) and Christian Wood ($4,000) would also become more appealing value plays if Drummond is sidelined.
