Pelicans’ Brandon Ingram questionable Thursday vs. Thunder
Pelicans say All-Star Brandon Ingram (Right Ankle Sprain) is questionable for Thursday's game vs OKC.

Ingram has missed the last two games—both impressive New Orleans victories. The Pelicans defeated the reeling Indiana Pacers 124-117 on Saturday and easily handled the Portland Trail Blazers 138-117 behind a huge Zion Williamson game on Tuesday. The Pelicans (23-31) currently trail the Memphis Grizzlies (27-26) by 4.5 games for the Western Conference’s eighth seed.
There is no word yet on Ingram’s status for this Sunday’s All-Star Game. The 22-year-old Pelicans forward is set to make his All-Star debut thanks to a breakout first season in the Big Easy after three underwhelming years in Los Angeles. He’s averaging 24.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 4.2 assists while shooting 40% from three—good for 4.6 Win Shares.
The contest at the Smoothie King Center will be both the Pelicans and Thunder’s final contests before the NBA’s All-Star break.
