Ingram (shoulder) is expected to be ready before the start of training camp in the fall, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Ingram underwent surgery back in March to address a thoracic outlet issue in his right arm, and while the procedure entails a multi-month recovery, the Duke product is expected to resume on-court activities sometime in July. That should give Ingram, who was shipped to New Orleans in the Anthony Davis deal, a few months to work his way back into shape before the start of camp. The Pelicans' roster figures to undergo more changes between now and October, but the general expectation is that Ingram will start on the wing for his new team.
The Lakers traded Ingram (shoulder) to the Pelicans on Saturday as part of a package of players and picks in a deal that sent Anthony Davis to Los Angeles, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Along with Ingram, the Lakers dealt away Josh Hart (knee), Lonzo Ball, the fourth overall pick in next week's draft and two additional future draft picks. Ingram, who averaged 18.3 points, 5.1 rebounds and 3.0 assists in 52 games last year, is expected to be ready for the start of the 2019-20 campaign after requiring season-ending thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm in mid-March. While New Orleans could augment its roster in a significant way in the next few months, Ingram should be in line to serve as one of the Pelicans' primary scoring options.
Ingram underwent a successful surgery Saturday and is expected to be ready to start the 2019-2020 season. Ingram had thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm to prevent blood clots from forming in his right arm. The news that Ingram will presumably be healthy for the beginning of the next season is a relief for the Lakers, who were anxious about the ramifications of his diagnosis. There's a chance that Ingram will still be dealt for another star over the summer, but either way the successful surgery improves the third-year forward's odds of returning to the strong form he was showcasing prior to suffering the injury.
Ingram has been diagnosed with Deep Venous Thrombosis in his arm and is out for the remainder of the season. It was previously though Ingram had missed the past two games simply due to shoulder soreness, but the issue is more serious. The Lakers medical team will shut Ingram down for the remainder of the season while working to correct the issue. While he's sidelined, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Josh Hart and Reggie Bullock could see more run.
Ingram (shoulder) is questionable for Saturday's contest against the Celtics, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports. Ingram has missed the past two games while dealing with right shoulder soreness. He may be able to return Saturday, and we should learn more about his status following morning shootaround.
