Lakers' Brandon Ingram: Returns to bench role, but plays 29 minutes
Ingram came off the bench to provide seven points (3-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt) and eight rebounds across 29 minutes in Sunday's 109-94 win over the Hawks.
After starting the previous two games with Julius Randle (hip) out, Ingram settled back into his usual role with the second unit, as coach Luke Walton elected to run a bigger lineup that included Thomas Robinson at power forward. Ingram still ended up seeing about five minutes more than his season average coming off the bench, but wasn't really able to get his shooting back on track after going 3-of-18 from the field in Friday's loss to the Warriors. The poor efficiency remains the biggest blemish on the rookie's resume thus far, as his 37 percent mark from the field for the season has sapped any fantasy value he might otherwise deliver.
