Brandon Ingram skips Lakers’ 2-game trip with sprained ankle

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.

Ingram will have a precautionary MRI exam Thursday night.

Ingram injured his ankle early in the Lakers’ 121-113 victory over San Antonio on Wednesday night when Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge flagrantly fouled him.

Ingram is the Lakers’ starting shooting guard and their third-leading scorer with 15.2 points per game. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft also averages 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

The Lakers (15-9) visit San Antonio on Friday night and Memphis on Saturday before returning home to face Miami on Monday.

The Lakers have won 13 of their last 17 during their first season with LeBron James.
