Brandon Ingram has taken a step forward this season in New Orleans, a team that has put the ball in his hands a lot and trusted the forward to make plays. Ingram is averaging 25.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists a game, shooting 41.5 percent from three, and is playing at a level that will get him All-Star consideration. He just happens to be doing all that in a contract year.
Which is why this was a scary moment: Phoenix’s Dario Saric fell on Ingram’s head.
Ingram went back to the locker room but the result was just stitches, according to the team.
It looks like it was not as bad as the video made it appear.
