  • Ingram offered 26 points (11-18 FG, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 40 minutes in Wednesday's 115-109 loss to the Sixers. Ingram's scoring and rebounding totals both were team highs, and he tied Kyle Kuzma for most shot attempts among the starters. The explosion brought the second-year forward out of a two-game shooting slump, one that had seen him go just 4-for-19 from the field over the previous pair of contests. Ingram has shown improvement across the board this season, and even his recent struggles have been a relative rarity-- factoring in Wednesday's production, Ingram has improved his scoring average by more than five points per game (9.4 to 15.7) and boosted his shooting percentage from 40.2 to 45.4.

  • Ingram finished with 18 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-7 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assist across 37 minutes during Wednesday's 107-96 loss to the Celtics. Coming into Wednesday, Ingram had been averaging 16.2 points, 5.2 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 2.2 steals over the team's previous five contests -- marks he hovered around against the Celtics. He's significantly improved on the offensive end this season after averaging just 9.4 points on 40.2 percent shooting during 2016-17.

  • Ingram tallied 20 points (7-14 FG, 6-6 FT), seven rebounds and an assist across 38 minutes in Sunday's 107-102 win over the Grizzlies. Although only in his sophomore campaign, Ingram has assumed a clear leadership role among this group of young players. From minutes to field-goal percentage, he is seeing a huge uptick from this 2016 numbers, most notably in points, where he's putting up 6 more points per ga,e than last year. He's flown under the radar for most owners due to the lingering effects of a horrible 2016 season for the Lakers, but it's time to take a closer look at Ingram if you haven't already.

  • Ingram generated 18 points (7-13 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-6 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 36 minutes in Friday's 124-112 win over the Nets. Ingram served as an effective third wheel on offense behind Brook Lopez and Kyle Kuzma, who combined for 55 points. The 20-year-old has shot 50.0 percent or better in three of his last four contests, while his rebound total Friday equaled a season high. Already boasting career highs across the stat sheet, Ingram looks like one of the NBA's most improved second-year players in the early going.

  • Ingram supplied 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt), six assists, five rebounds, four steals and one block across 34 minutes in Tuesday's 113-93 win over the Pistons. Ingram continues to demonstrate marked improvement over the results he generated in the first half of last year's rookie campaign, especially with his shot. Factoring in Tuesday's contest, he's now drained 50.0 percent of his attempts in three of the past four games, going 21-for-42 over that span. His contributions in other categories has been above-average for the most part as well, and he's generated back-to-back four-steal nights. Ingram appears to have found his niche within head coach Luke Walton's system, and he thus appears poised to provide multi-category rewards to his fantasy owners over the course of the season.
