The Detroit Pistons lost star center Andre Drummond in the first quarter to a neck injury.

Drummond was able to walk off with some assistance and was a bit sore after the game. He will not play in the Pistons' Wednesday game in Denver and is question for Friday in Phoenix.

"Just a little bit of a scare," Drummond said on Sunday. "It's hard for me to make moves left and right sometimes, but it shouldn't be anything that should stop me from the next few days."

Drummond, Detroit's promising second-year center, left with 6:32 remaining in the first quarter. He appeared to be hit in the head inadvertently by the Pacers' Roy Hibbert during a scramble near the basket.

"I got my hand on the ball and the ball rolled between my legs," Drum

mond said. "I reached down and came up and I ended up, my head hit Roy Hibbert in his thigh and sent a shock throughout my whole body."

Drummond stayed down through an entire timeout. A stretcher was eventually brought onto the court, but he was able to get up and walk off toward the tunnel.
