Ingram (leg) will not play for the remainder of summer league after experiencing cramping during Friday's loss to the Clippers.
Obviously, the injury isn't serious, but the Lakers would rather play it safe than sorry with their young prospect. He will still remain with the team and continue to practice, however.
Ingram paced the Lakers with 26 points (9-17 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT) in 31 minutes during Friday's overtime loss to the Clippers at the Las Vegas Summer League. However, he missed the extra period due to a right leg injury, Mike Trudell of Lakers.com reports.
Looking far more comfortable in his second summer-league stint, Ingram was the primary scoring option for the Lakers as he worked in conjunction with 2017 second overall pick Lonzo Ball. In addition to the team-high tally in points, Ingram tacked on three assists, three steals, two blocks and one rebound on the evening. With a chance to end the game in regulation, he barely missed a contested jumper but remained on the court after landing. He was then held out of overtime as a precaution, adding some uncertainty to his potential to suit up Saturday against the Celtics.
Ingram (knee) will start at small forward for Wednesday's game versus the Warriors.
Ingram was listed as probable heading into the evening, so this news is relatively unsurprising. The rookie to take on a healthy workload in the season finale if his knee is not bothering him, as the Lakers have a number of players sidelined. However, expect the Lakers to air on the side of caution if he begins feeling any discomfort.
Ingram is probable for Wednesday's tilt against the Warriors while dealing with right knee tendinitis, Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News reports.
Ingram has been dealing with right knee tendinitis since late March, averaging just 23.3 minutes per game over the past six games. It's possible that if he does play, he'll be on a minutes restriction for the Lakers' final game of the season. If he's dealing with too much discomfort and is ultimately ruled out, Corey Brewer, Larry Nance and Metta World Peace would likely see additional run at the small forward slot.
Ingram registered 15 points (6-16 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-5 FT), six assists, five rebounds and one steal across 28 minutes in a 108-96 win over the Pelicans on Tuesday.
Ingram has had his playing time monitored a little more carefully in April after he missed the final three games of March with knee soreness, but it hasn't hindered his production much. He's averaging 13.0 points (on 44.9% shooting from the field), 3.2 rebounds, 2.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 23.3 minutes per game on the month and seems intent on closing out his rookie season on a high note.
