Ingram had totaled just 22 combined points over the prior two games, but he bounced back with a better shooting effort Wednesday. The 2016 second overall pick had shot under 40.0 percent in those contests, but he was able to hit the mark against the Trail Blazers while also turning in an 80.0 percent effort from the free-throw line. The 21-year-old's usage will tend to fluctuate given that he shares the floor with the likes of LeBron James and Kyle Kuzma, but he can typically be counted on to prop up his lines with solid production across other categories when his offense sees a slight downturn.
Ingram posted 10 points (3-8 FG, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block across 29 minutes in the Lakes' 107-106 win over the Hawks on Sunday.
Ingram struggled from the field for the second straight game, although unlike Saturday against the Kings, Ingram wasn't able to supplement his stat line with strong production elsewhere. The 21-year-old has drained just eight of his 25 attempts over the last pair of contests, and he added to his problems Sunday with six turnovers as well. Ingram will look to bounce back to his usual numbers against the Trail Blazers on Wednesday.
Ingram served as an ideal complementary presence alongside the efforts of LeBron James on the starting five, posting his second 20-point effort of the season in the process. The 21-year-old has shot 63.6 and 57.1 percent, respectively, over the last two games, and his assist total Wednesday qualified as a season high. After seeing his season interrupted by a four-game suspension for fighting against the Rockets on Oct. 20, Ingram has bounced back to score between 16 and 24 points in four of the five games since his return.
Ingram continues to offer solid complementary production, although his usage is naturally down now that he shares the floor with LeBron James. Moreover, Kyle Kuzma has remained on the first unit since Ingram's return from suspension, which also appears to be making a dent in Ingram's scoring opportunities. Nevertheless, the 2016 second overall pick is still averaging a solid 15.5 points (on a career-best 47.4 percent shooting), and he's still putting up a career-high 13.0 shot attempts per contest over his first six games.
Ingram finished with 24 points (9-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, three blocks, and two assists in 25 minutes during Monday's 124-120 loss to the Timberwolves.
Ingram made his return after a four-game absence due to suspension, finishing with 24 points to go with three blocks. Coach Luke Walton decided to start Ingram at the shooting guard position as a means of keeping Kyle Kuzma in the starting lineup. No matter the position he is labeled with, Ingram is able to provide nice across the board production on a nightly basis. He should be rostered in all leagues but do expect a few bumps in the road moving forward.
