EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — 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 four in a row and are 15-9 so far during their first season with LeBron James.
