Ingram (knee) will be a game-time decision for Thursday's contest against the Clippers, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Ingram sat out Monday's loss to the Rockets after he was a late scratch prior to the contest, but with a follow-up MRI clearing him of any ligament damage to his knee, he looks like he'll be on tap for an abbreviated absence. If Ingram is ultimately held out again Thursday, however, Kenrich Williams may see extended run.
Ingram (knee) didn't practice Tuesday but will be considered day-to-day moving forward after his MRI came back clean, Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Ingram was sent for a precautionary MRI on Tuesday after experiencing soreness in his right knee, but the issue appears to be nothing more than that. His availability for Thursday's clash with the Clippers is unknown at this time, but he'll likely need to show improvement Wednesday to have a chance to suit up.
Ingram will undergo an MRI on Tuesday on his sore right knee, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Lopez notes that the Pelicans are "optimistic" that Ingram doesn't have any major issues with his knee, suggesting the MRI may be precautionary more than anything else. That said, the team likely won't have a good read on Ingram's availability for Thursday's game against the Clippers until the results of the MRI are available. Ingram was a late scratch ahead of Monday's eventual 122-116 loss to the Rockets after his knee acted up following pregame warmups. His absence opened up a starting spot for Josh Hart (19 points, four rebounds, four assists and two steals in 30 minutes), while fellow starter Kenrich Williams benefited from a boost in playing time (season-high 38 minutes).
Ingram will not play in Monday's matchup with the Rockets due to knee soreness, Scott Kushner of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Ingram was not on the injury report ahead of Monday's contest, which makes this news relatively surprising. He will be replaced in the starting lineup by Josh Hart. His next chance to return will be Thursday versus the Clippers.
Ingram racked up 25 points (8-12 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 6-11 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and one steal in 36 minutes during Saturday's 115-110 win over the Hornets.
Ingram was extremely efficient as as scorer but finished with nearly twice as many turnovers (seven) as assists. After sinking 50.0 percent of his 6.4 three-point attempts per game through five matchups in October, Ingram had connected on just four-of-13 from beyond the arc through his first three appearances in November. That likely won't be the only area of negative regression for Ingram going forward, especially once Zion Williamson (knee) returns sometime next month. With that being said, Ingram has mostly been superb through nine games.
Ingram recorded 40 points (17-24 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists, and two steals in 37 minutes during Monday's 135-125 loss to the Nets.
Ingram showed no signs of being slowed by the head injury that forced him out of Saturday's matchup versus the Thunder, as he finished with a career high scoring total while contributing across every category except blocks. He was extraordinarily efficient as well, connecting on over 70 percent of his field goal attempts. With three days off prior to Friday's bout versus the Raptors, Ingram has ample time to rest and recover following his career night.
Ingram (head) is starting Monday's game against the Nets, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.
Ingram was considered a game-time call by the Pelicans, but he's been given the green light to start. He's averaging 23.5 points, 7.5 rebounds and 4.2 assists over the first six games of the 2019-20 campaign.
Ingram will be a game-time decision for Monday's game against the Nets, Daniel Sallerson of the Pelicans Radio Network reports.
Ingram was off the injury report Sunday, but the team has since announced that he'll be a game-time decision due to a head injury. Head coach Alvin Gentry did note that he thinks Ingram will be given the green light, though confirmation of his status likely won't come until closer to tip.
Ingram (head) wasn't included on the Pelicans' injury report ahead of Monday's game against the Nets, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
Ingram missed the entire second half of Saturday's game against the Thunder with a head injury, but passed all concussion testing administered after his departure. The team monitored Ingram again Sunday, but with no concussion symptoms surfacing, he received clearance for Monday. Expect Ingram to step back into a focal role for the Pelicans after averaging 23.5 points, 7.5 boards and 4.2 assists in 30.8 minutes per game over the team's first six contests.
Ingram (head) passed all concussion tests following his departure in Saturday's 115-104 loss to the Thunder and isn't in the NBA's concussion protocol, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
It's probably the best-case scenario the Pelicans and Ingram could have hoped for after the forward saw his streak of five straight 20-plus-point performances come to an end after his early exit Saturday. Ingram may be ready to play as soon as Monday against the Nets, but his status may not be established until after morning shootaround.
Ingram suffered a head injury and is doubtful to return for the second half of Saturday's game against the Thunder.
The severity of the injury isn't clear, and it's possible we learn more after the game. If Ingram is sidelined for a period of time, Nicolo Melli, Kenrich Williams, Josh Hart and JJ Redick are all candidates to see extra run.
Ingram asked for a substitute in the second quarter and went to the locker room, failing to return before halftime, Royce Young of ESPN.com reports.
It's not clear what sort of injury Ingram is dealing with. He should be considered questionable to return.
Ingram tallied 25 points (7-12 FG, 2-4 3PT, 9-11 FT), five assists and three rebounds in Thursday's 122-107 win over Denver.
Ingram helped lead the way for New Orleans again, scoring 25 to contribute to the Pelicans' first win of the 2019-20 season. Though his scoring output may diminish once Zion Williamson (knee) is healthy, Ingram's 26.8 points per game (eighth-best in the league) should be more than enough to warrant considerable usage in New Orleans' rotation.
Ingram generated 27 points (10-23 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists, and two steals in 31 minutes during Monday's 134-123 loss to the Warriors.
Ingram has been absolutely sensational to start the season, upping his volume and efficiency, especially from beyond the arc. The Pelicans play an uptempo style that's typically friendly from a fantasy perspective, and Ingram will try to keep it rolling during Thursday's matchup with the Nuggets.
Ingram had 35 points (14-22 FG, 4-7 3PT, 3-5 FT), 15 rebounds, five assists and three turnovers during New Orleans' 123-126 loss against Houston on Saturday.
Ingram has emerged as the Pelicans' first option on offense due to Zion Williamson's knee injury and has stepped up to the challenge, scoring over 20 points in three straight games while also providing elite rebouding numbers for a small forward. He will try to continue his strong start to the campaign next Monday against the Warriors.
Ingram had 25 points (10-20 FG, 4-7 3PT, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and three blocks during the Pelicans' 116-123 loss against the Mavericks on Friday.
Ingram was largely expected to have a larger role compared to what he did with the Lakers last season and while Zion Williamson's injury has trusted him into an even bigger role on offense, Ingram has stepped up to the challenge -- the four-year small forward has scored at least 20 points in his first two games while making 50.0 percent of his threes so far. Ingram should remain as New Orleans' biggest offensive threat on Saturday at Houston.
Ingram produced 22 points (8-19 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, five assists, two blocks, and one steal in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 130-122 overtime loss to the Raptors.
Ingram led the team in points and field goal attempts while contributing across every statistical category. Especially with Zion Williamson (knee) out for at least the next six weeks, Ingram is a good bet to continue earning heavy minutes and hoisting no shortage of shots. While fantasy owners would appreciate a slight improvement in the efficiency department, it's hard to complain about such a well-rounded stat line.
Ingram totaled 18 points (7-15 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), six rebounds, three assists and a steal across 22 minutes in Friday's 128-127 win over the Jazz.
As the rotation begins to crystallize for the Pelicans, it appears that at least for now, Ingram will have a pivotal role in New Orleans. Last season's mainstay at the wing was E'Twaun Moore, who was a DNP in Friday's contest. Although Jrue Holiday's (quad) return will likely have an effect on his former Laker counterparts like Lonzo Ball and Josh Hart, Ingram should end up in the first unit, with J.J. Redick subbing in with the second rotation of players.
Ingram produced 19 points (6-12 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, one assist and one steal across 23 minutes during the Pelicans' 133-109 preseason win over the Hawks on Monday.
Ingram enjoyed a successful Pelicans debut, checking in second only to Jrue Holiday in scoring on the night and also turning a solid showing on the boards. The 2016 second overall pick of the Lakers should enjoy a robust role in the new-look New Orleans attack this season and is likely to need minimal acclimation to the team's fast-paced style after playing in a similar system in Los Angeles.
Ingram said Monday that he's fully healthy and doesn't expect to have any further blood clot issues, Andrew Lopez of ESPN reports.
Ingram was fully cleared earlier in the month, and he revealed Monday that he's no longer taking any medications for the blood clot condition that cut his 2018-19 season short. The rangy forward will look to reestablish himself in New Orleans, where he's expected to start on the wing and compete for minutes with J.J. Redick, E'Twaun Moore, and Nicolo Melli, among others.
