Brandon Ingram returning to action for Pelicans-Lakers matchup

Good timing!

NBA: New Orleans Pelicans at Portland Trail Blazers Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Pelicans will get a nice boost to the rotation against the Los Angeles Lakers in Tuesday’s matchup, with Brandon Ingram getting upgraded to available.

Ingram had missed the last several games with a right ankle sprain. The Pelicans were able to win one of two games over the weekend in his absence, but considering the mammoth importance of posting a victory over the Lakers, there’s an added premium on his availability for tonight.

Anthony Davis is expected to play after being listed as probable on yesterday’s L.A. injury report.
