The Los Angeles Lakers can add another malady to the lengthy list of one’s suffered by their roster this season, as forward Brandon Ingram has right patellar tendinitis. According the team Ingram is still probable for their Friday game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Ingram is averaging nine points on 39.8 percent shooting in his debut season, but has been better of late, posting averages of 13.7 points per game while knocking down 50.8 percent of his shots.
Ingram leads the Lakers in minutes this season with 29.3 per game, and if he can’t go, the team will probably look to get more minutes from Corey Brewer and possibly David Nwaba if they play small, with the outside possibility of head coach Luke Walton dusting off Luol Deng.
