Andre Ingram was one of the feel-good stories of last season. After a decade in the G-League — he is that league’s all-time leader in three pointers — the Lakers brought him up for the final two games of the regular season and he played well. Ingram had 19 points in his debut and hit 4-of-5 from three — that’s the most points scored in an NBA debut by a player over 30 (at least in the basketball-reference.com database, which goes back to the 1960s).
The Lakers could use a feel-good story right now — and they are bringing Ingram back on a 10-day contract.
The shorthanded Lakers could use the help. Both Brandon Ingram (deep venous thrombosis) and Lonzo Ball (ankle) are shut down for the season. Kyle Kuzma missed the last two game but practiced with the team and could return Monday night.
