Lakers forward Brandon Ingram is expected to miss at least four games due to an ankle sprain, according to the team. He will be re-evaluated in a week.
X-rays of Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram's left ankle were negative and he will have the sprain examined further on Thursday, coach Luke Walton said. The Lakers announced Ingram would undergo an MRI late on Thursday. Ingram left in the first quarter of Wednesday's 121-113 Lakers victory over the Spurs.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Brandon Ingram is staying home from the Los Angeles Lakers' upcoming two-game road trip due to his sprained left ankle.
Khris Middleton was a surprise DNP, Brandon Ingram got hurt, and Russell Westbrook, Paul George, LeBron James, Kawhi Leonard, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Karl-Anthony Towns all went off. Lakers 121, Spurs 113 – Brandon Ingram lasted just five minutes before leaving with a sprained left ankle and Josh Hart started the second half in his place, but Hart was dogged by foul trouble and only played 13 minutes.
LeBron James scored 20 of his 42 points in the fourth quarter and Josh Hart hit two clutch 3-pointers in the final minutes of the Los Angeles Lakers' fourth straight victory, 121-113 over the San Antonio Spurs on Wednesday night. Kyle Kuzma had 22 points and nine rebounds for the Lakers, who lost Brandon Ingram to a sprained left ankle in the first quarter. Los Angeles still beat the Spurs for the first time in three tries this season, but only after James dramatically took control of another fourth quarter during his third 40-point game since joining the Lakers.
