For Saturday night's game against the Memphis Grizzlies, it is now for certain that Los Angeles Lakers rising star forward Brandon Ingram will not play due to his lingering strained groin.

According to a report Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times, Ingram was originally listed as doubtful for tomorrow night's contest.

“Lakers listed Brandon Ingram as doubtful in their notes for tomorrow's game, which is a slight upgrade from ‘out,' which has been his designation for previous games since his injury. Doubtful still means he probably won't play,” Ganguli said.

However, just nine minutes later after her first tweet, Ganguli posted an update on Twitter that confirmed Ingram was not going to be active on Saturday night against Memphis.

“Ingram got some shots up today in Memphis and the Lakers are updating his designation to out for tomorrow's game,” Ganguli reported.

The 20-year-old forward, who was injured during the Lakers' impressive 131-113 victory over the Miami Heat back on March 1, has not played since then and is averaging 16.2 points on 46.9 percent shooting from the floor, 5.4 rebounds, and 3.9 assists per game in 33.8 minutes of action per contest.

This continues to be a very frustrating four-game stretch by the Lakers, as the team has dropped all four contests despite the fact that they were in good position to win all of them. With the Grizzlies (19-53) seemingly in full tank mode and coming off an extremely embarrassing 140-79 thrashing at the hands of the Charlotte Hornets last night, the Lakers (31-40) still cannot afford to look past this team by any stretch of the imagination.
