It appears that the Lakers have been hit with the injury bug again. This time it being Brandon Ingram:

Ingram has been banged up a lot this year with some minor injuries here and there. The Lakers are going to have a tough match-up against the Spurs and could used all the players that they can get. Ingram does plenty of things in the game that impact the outcome, even though his shot is falling. He is already a plus wing defender and good secondary ball handler to have coming off the bench.
He has recently hit somewhat of a hot streak by playing much better than he was early in the year. For a 19 year old, he truly has much to offer a team. His presence will truly be missed if he misses time and the hope is that he is good to go against the Spurs. It would be a good game to see how he fairs against an elite team like the Spurs. Ingram missing this game could mean Metta getting some playing time and for our eyesight, let’s pray this doesn’t happen.
Stay tuned to Lakers Pulse for future updates on Ingram’s MRI.
