Ingram to miss Lakers' next 2 games
Brandon Ingram will miss the Los Angeles Lakers' next two games because of a sprained ankle he sustained Wednesday night, the team announced Thursday.
The third-year wing sprained his left ankle in the first quarter of his team's win against San Antonio when he came down on the foot of the Spurs' LaMarcus Aldridge after taking a jump shot. He reportedly was using crutches after the game but also was able to move without them.
X-rays Wednesday night were negative but Lakers reporter Mike Trudell reported Thursday afternoon that Ingram would undergo an MRI exam later in the evening.
Ingram is averaging 15.2 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists in 30.8 minutes per game in 20 games. The Lakers are at San Antonio on Friday then play at Memphis on Saturday. They return home to face Miami on Monday.
