Ingram hurts ankle on landing, exits Lakers game
LOS ANGELES — Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram injured his left ankle in the first quarter of Wednesday night’s game against San Antonio when he landed on the foot of Spurs big man LaMarcus Aldridge.
After an official’s review, Aldridge was called for a flagrant foul 1 for sticking his foot underneath the spot where Ingram was going to land when he attempted a jump shot. Ingram was on the floor in pain for a spell after the foul, prompting his teammates to surround him to check on his status.
Ingram made the jump shot and stayed in the game to shoot the free throw, which he also made, before checking out with 6:34 remaining in the first quarter. The third-year veteran received X-rays on the ankle, which came back negative, but the Lakers still ruled him out from returning.
