Top Brandon Ingram News

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Will be back in action Tuesday

    Ingram (toe) isn't listed on the Pelicans' injury report for Tuesday's game against the Nuggets, Jim Eichenhofer of the team's official site reports.

    Ingram took a seat for the second half of the Pelicans' recent back-to-back set to manage his left toe injury, but as expected, he'll return to action Tuesday in Denver. Before sitting out Sunday, he appeared in back-to-back games following a two-month absence due to the toe issue and averaged 17.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 4.5 assists in 27.5 minutes during those contests, though he shot just 30.0 percent from the field and went 1-for-11 from deep. Ingram is clearly shaking off some rust, but he should still see a sizable workload against the Nuggets.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Ruled out Sunday

    Ingram has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against the Bucks due to left toe injury management, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Ingram has appeared in back-to-back games following a two-month absence due to a toe injury, but he'll be sidelined for the second half of New Orleans' current back-to-back set to manage his workload. Barring a setback, it's safe to presume Ingram will return to action Tuesday in Denver. Meanwhile, CJ McCollum (thumb) has also been ruled out Sunday, so Jose Alvarado, Devonte' Graham and Kira Lewis are all candidates for increased roles against the Bucks.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Improved performance Saturday

    Ingram had 22 points (8-22 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 5-5 FT), six rebounds, four assists and one steal over 29 minutes during Saturday's 113-103 loss to the Wizards.

    Ingram looked a little better in the loss, ending with 22 points on 8-of-22 shooting. The efficiency remains an issue, something that could linger for a few games yet since he's still getting up to speed after missing two months with a toe injury. The fact he was able to play 29 minutes should be seen as a positive, a number that will perhaps increase over the coming games. The Pelicans have now lost seven straight games, currently clinging to the fifth seed in the Western Conference, sitting just one game clear of the Jazz, who are in the 10th seed.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Minutes expected to rise Saturday

    Ingram is expected to see more minutes Saturday against the Wizards than the 26 he received during Wednesday's return against the Timberwolves, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Ingram was rusty in his return, going 4-for-18 from the field and committing four turnovers, but coach Willie Green isn't worried and will give the forward more action in his second game back. In the 11 games prior to Ingram's injury, he averaged 21.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 34.9 minutes.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Looks rusty in return

    Ingram (toe) logged 13 points (4-18 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 5-5 FT), five rebounds, five assists and one steal over 26 minutes during Wednesday's 111-102 loss to the Timberwolves.

    After sitting out the Pelicans' last 29 contests while on the mend from a bruised left toe, Ingram unsurprisingly struggled with his efficiency in his first game action in two months. He came up empty on all six of his shot attempts from long range, marking just the third time all season he failed to knock down a three-point shot. On a positive note, Ingram saw a healthy amount of playing time in his first game back, and he should see his minutes load ramp up in the games to come as he becomes further removed from the toe injury.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Starting in return

    Ingram (toe) will start Wednesday's contest against the Timberwolves, but he's expected to play around 24 minutes during his first game action since Nov. 25, Jennifer Hale of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    As expected, Ingram will return to the Pelicans' starting lineup Wednesday following a lengthy absence due to a left bruised toe. Given his minutes restriction, it may be difficult for fantasy managers to trust Ingram right away, but New Orleans presumably wouldn't thrust him back into action unless he was ready to handle a solid role. Before suffering the injury, Ingram had averaged 21.6 points, 5.1 rebounds and 5.0 assists in 34.9 minutes over his previous 11 appearances.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Listed probable for Wednesday

    The Pelicans officially list Ingram (toe) as probable for Wednesday's game against the Timberwolves.

    Supporting what Shams Charania of The Athletic reported earlier Wednesday, Ingram looks poised to put an end to his two-month absence against the Timberwolves, provided he doesn't experience any setbacks with his bruised left big toe while warming up ahead of the 8 p.m. ET opening tip. Even if Ingram reclaims his usual starting role on the wing, he'll most likely be on some sort of minutes limit Wednesday, given that he's been sidelined for each of the Pelicans' last 29 games and may need more time to regain full conditioning.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: On track to play Wednesday

    Ingram (toe) is expected to play Wednesday against the Timberwolves, barring a setback in pregame warmups, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Ingram has been sidelined for the past two months with a bruised left big toe, but he finally turned a corner over the past few days, when head coach Willie Green said the 25-year-old was able to take part in full-contact, 5-on-5 work in practice. Because of his lengthy layoff, Ingram will most likely be on a minutes restriction of some kind Wednesday, provided he avoids a setback leading up to the 8 p.m. ET opening tip. Ingram's impending return could result in fewer minutes to go around for the likes of Trey Murphy, Naji Marshall (toe), Jose Alvarado and Dyson Daniels (ankle), all of whom have stepped into heightened roles while the one-time All-Star has been out.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Out again Tuesday

    Ingram (toe) will not play Tuesday versus the Nuggets, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Another night, another absence for Ingram, who hasn't taken the floor since Nov. 25 in Memphis. There is no official timetable for his return, so it's best to consider him doubtful to play each night until there is something to suggest that might change. His next opportunity to suit up arrives Wednesday against the Timberwolves, though it seems highly unlikely.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Unlikely to play Tuesday

    Ingram (toe) is doubtful for Tuesday's matchup against the Nuggets, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Ingram, who hasn't played since Nov. 25 due to a bruised left big toe, recently began participating in full-contact practices again and is planning on returning to action during the Pelicans' upcoming three-game home set. He'll likely remain sidelined for Tuesday's matchup, and if that's the case, Ingram's next chance to suit up would come Wednesday against Minnesota. However, it appears that a more likely scenario would be Ingram returning for the final contest of the homestand Saturday against Washington so that he can get a few more days of practice in before being thrust into game action.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Plans to play during homestand

    Ingram (toe) went through a full 5-on-5 practice Monday and plans to return during the Pelicans' upcoming three-game homestand that opens Tuesday, Erin Summers of Bally Sports New Orleans reports.

    Ingram hasn't played since Nov. 25 due to a bruised left big toe, but he recently began participating in full-contact practices again and appears on the verge of returning to game action. However, the star forward said his availability will come down to pain tolerance, so it may take him awhile to get back to his usual self. The Pelicans' three-game home stand begins with a back-to-back set against Denver and Minnesota on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, and ends Saturday versus Washington. The Saturday game may be the most realistic target for Ingram's return given that it would give him another opportunity to practice beforehand.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Practices, but still out

    Pelicans head coach Willie Green said Ingram (toe) participated in 5-on-5 work during practice Saturday but remains out for Sunday's game against the Heat, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Updates on Ingram have been scarce and infrequent while he hasn't played since Nov. 25 due to a bruised left big toe, but Green's comments finally offer some hope that the veteran wing's return to game action could be imminent. Following Sunday's contest in Miami, the Pelicans will travel home for a three-game set, which begins Tuesday against Denver and ends Saturday against Washington. It's possible Ingram plays sometime during that stretch, but more information on his availability moving forward will likely come following Sunday's contest and the team's practice Monday.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Still out Sunday

    Ingram (toe) remains out Sunday against the Heat.

    Ingram has yet to practice as of Jan. 10, but the Pelicans continue to take his status on a game-to-game basis. The forward hasn't played since Nov. 25, and it's unclear when he may return.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Still out Friday

    Ingram (toe) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Magic, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    Ingram continues to deal with a bruised left toe and hasn't suited up since Nov. 25. Although the Pelicans continue to evaluate him on a game-by-game basis, it's not yet clear when the 25-year-old will be able to return to game action.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Sidelined again Wednesday

    Ingram (toe) remains out for Wednesday's game versus the Heat, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Ingram still hasn't appeared in a game since Nov. 25, and there doesn't look to be a clear timetable for his return at this juncture. The 25-year-old star's status should be monitored ahead of each game, but there hasn't been any news on him returning to practice yet. Until that happens, Ingram will seemingly remain on the sidelines.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Return not coming Monday

    Ingram (toe) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    The team previously expressed optimism Ingram would return during the current five-game road trip, but that won't come to fruition with the trip coming to an end Monday in Cleveland. The 25-year-old still appears close to making his return, but he'll need to wait until at least Wednesday's matchup with the Heat.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Remains out Friday

    Ingram (toe) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Pistons, Jim Eichenhofer of the Pelicans' official site reports.

    The Pelicans recently expressed hope that Ingram would be able to return during the team's current five-game road trip, but Monday's game in Cleveland will be his final chance to do so before the team returns home to face the Heat on Wednesday. He hasn't suited up since Nov. 25, so it seems likely that he'll face a minutes restriction once he's cleared to return.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Still not practicing

    Pelicans head coach Willie Green said Ingram (toe) didn't practice Tuesday, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

    Though Ingram previously said that he expected to play at some point during the Pelicans' five-game road swing that began last Saturday in Dallas, he sat out the first two contests of the trip and appears on track to miss another one Wednesday in Boston. If Ingram can practice in some capacity Thursday, he might have a chance at being available Friday in Detroit. Given that he hasn't played since Nov. 25 due to a left big toe contusion, Ingram will presumably be on a minutes restriction if he's able to play Friday and/or in the final game of the road trip Monday in Cleveland.

  • Pelicans' Brandon Ingram: Hopes to return on road trip

    Ingram (toe) said Friday that he hopes to return during the Pelicans' upcoming five-game road trip, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.

    Starting Saturday in Dallas, New Orleans plays five road games over the next 10 days. Ingram, who hasn't played since Nov. 25, is aiming to return during one of those contests, but even if he's cleared, it may take some time for him to shake off the rust and return to top form. Before his absence, Ingram had scored at least 20 points in eight of his 14 appearances, posting 21.7 points, 5.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists in 33.1 minutes.
