Pelicans’ Brandon Ingram questionable Thursday vs. Thunder

Brandon Ingram, Pelicans

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram is questionable to play Thursday versus the Oklahoma City Thunder due to a right ankle sprain, the team announced via ESPN’s Marc J. Spears.

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.
