Ingram said Tuesday that he's "pretty close" to returning to his normal offseason workouts following surgery to address a blood clot in his right arm, the Associated Press reports.
Speaking at the Pelicans' introductory presser Tuesday, Ingram revealed that he is yet to resume shooting a basketball, but he's been able to work on his form, in addition to ball-handling and passing work, as well as lower-body workouts. While the former No. 2 overall pick should be ready by the time training camp arrives, the lengthy layoff is somewhat concerning for a player who desperately needs to add strength to his upper body.
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.
Ingram (shoulder) won't play in Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Kyle Goon of The Orange County Register reports.
Ingram will miss his second-straight game due to soreness in his right shoulder. Along with Ingram, the Lakers will be without usual starter Kyle Kuzma, who's out with an ankle injury. JaVale McGee and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are likely candidates to start and take on minutes with Ingram and Kuzma out.
Ingram (shoulder) is considered questionable for Wednesday's matchup against the Nuggets.
Right shoulder soreness prevented Ingram from playing in Monday's loss to the Clippers. We may learn more about his availability for Wednesday after he goes through morning shootaround.
Ingram (shoulder) failed to participate in Tuesday's practice, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
While coach Luke Walton is optimistic that Ingram will return in time for Wednesday's matchup with Denver, it's mildly concerning that he wasn't available for practice. He'll likely have to prove his health during Wednesday morning's shootaround to have any shot at playing.
Coach Luke Walton said he's hopeful Ingram (shoulder) will be ready to play in Wednesday's game versus the Nuggets, Mike Trudell of the Lakers' official site reports.
Walton made the comment following Monday's 113-105 loss to the Clippers, which marked Ingram's first absence since Dec. 18. Ingram's sore right shoulder was never believed to be a serious concern, but he may need to practice Tuesday or participate in shootaround Wednesday morning without any discomfort before receiving the green light to play.
Ingram (shoulder) won't play Monday against the Clippers, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
Ingram was spotted getting up a few shots during warmups but headed back to the locker room after taking just a handful of attempts, per Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com. After being officially ruled out, Rajon Rondo and Josh Hart should be in line for extended playing time.
Ingram is questionable for Monday's game against the Clippers due to discomfort in his shoulder, Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Ingram was a late addition to the injury report and figures to be a true game-time call Monday evening. Rajon Rondon may start at point guard if Ingram can't go.
Ingram ended with 25 points (10-19 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven rebounds, and one assist in 39 minutes during Saturday's 118-109 loss to the Suns.
Ingram scored at least 23 points for the sixth straight game Saturday, coming away with 25 points on 10-of-19 shooting. The points have been nice but his lack of defense continues to be an issue. Over that same period, he has a recorded a combined one steal and three blocks. He will need to round out his game if he is too ever be considered a top fantasy asset.
Ingram accumulated 32 points (12-18 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one steal, and one block in 38 minutes during Monday's 110-105 loss to the Grizzlies.
Ingram scored at least 30 points for the second time this season, with both taking place across the last 10 games. The third-year forward has struggled at times here in 2018-19, but he's on a tear lately, scoring at least 27 points in each of the last three games.
Ingram totaled 29 points (10-17 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 6-9 FT), five rebounds and three assists over 29 minutes in the Lakers' loss to the Pelicans on Saturday.
Ingram paced the Lakers in scoring on an efficient shooting night, hitting 58.8 percent of his shots from the field and draining all of his threes. Ingram is a dynamic scorer, but his assist totals leave much to be desired despite his recent run at starting point guard. His scoring and rebounding still make him a quality option across most formats.
Ingram totaled 27 points (8-16 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 11-14 FT), 13 rebounds, and one assist in 41 minutes during Thursday's 111-106 victory over the Rockets.
Ingram compiled 27 points and 13 rebounds in Thursday's win but dished out just one assist. He has assumed the role of point guard in the starting unit but was disappointing with his facilitation skills in this one. He made up for it by recording a double-double and the Lakers came away with an impressive victory. It appears as though he is going to remain in this role, at least for the short term, and his assist numbers will likely be better than this on most nights.
Ingram contributed 11 points (4-14 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-6 FT), seven assists, two steals and one block across 40 minutes Thursday in the Lakers' 129-128 win over the Celtics.
It was encouraging to see Ingram chip in a quality assist total with LeBron James back in the fold after one-game rest, but Ingram's fantasy prospects undoubtedly take a hit now that the superstar is back to full strength again. Despite playing huge minutes and flirting with a double-double Thursday, Ingram's usage rate sat at 18.8 percent. That's a drop of just under three percentage points from the mark he held over the previous two weeks (21.7 percent).
Ingram registered 12 points (4-8 FG, 4-5 FT), six rebounds and an assist in 29 minutes Tuesday against Indiana.
Ingram only took eight shots from the field on the night but managed to know down four of those attempts. He finished well below his season scoring average (17.2 ppg), although he did add some value for fantasy owners on the boards. Look for Ingram to play more aggressively in Thursday's matchup with Boston, something he'll need to do (especially when Lebron James is resting on the bench) in order for the Lakers to be successful.
Ingram delivered 19 points (7-12 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds and four assists across 44 minutes in the Lakers' 123-120 overtime win over the Clippers on Thursday.
Ingram logged a team-high amount of minutes while playing alongside LeBron James (groin) for the first time since Christmas Day. The 2016 second overall pick offered a solid encore to his career-best 36-point night against the 76ers on Tuesday, although his shot attempts were back down to more or less normal levels after he put the ball up 20 times in that contest, one that neither James nor Kyle Kuzma (hip) played in. Ingram's usage will undoubtedly take somewhat of a hit with James back in the fold, but he should still be a steady contributor across the stat sheet on a nightly basis.
Ingram finished with 36 points (16-20 FG, 4-5 FT), five rebounds, and five assists in 39 minutes during Tuesday's 121-105 loss to Philadelphia.
Ingram went off for a career-high 36 points Tuesday, hitting 16 of his 20 shot attempts in an impressive performance. His lack of defensive stats capped his overall value but the scoring was nice and he has now dropped at least 20 points in four of his past five games. Ingram is one of the more vexing fantasy players with his occasional lack of enthusiasm and effort outweighing his upside. He remains a must-roster player in basically all formats but with LeBron James (groin) due back shortly, Ingram's production could take a slight hit.
