Game thread: Brandon Ingram OUT for Pelicans-Grizzlies matchup

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Denver Nuggets Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Ahead of their matchup with the Memphis Grizzlies, the New Orleans Pelicans placed Brandon Ingram on the injury report with right hamstring soreness earlier in the day.

In pregame media, Willie Green stated that Ingram would be a game-time decision, needing to go through warmups to surmise his availability. The head coach also said that Ingram first began experiencing the soreness his hamstring after Sunday’s game against the Nuggets.

Well, minutes ago, the unfortunate news was posted on Twitter — Ingram is out for tonight’s contest.

Brandon Ingram will miss his fifteenth game of the season due to injury.

Tony Snell will take Ingram’s spot in the starting lineup, joining CJ McCollum, Herb Jones, Jaxson Hayes and Jonas Valanciunas.
