Brandon Ingram said the next step to returning is to go on the court and ramp it up with the team. The next practice for the Lakers likely is early next week in New Orleans after they play in Indiana on Monday. "He obviously is coming with us on the road trip," Luke Walton said. "I wouldn't be surprised if he plays on the road trip. He is feeling much better he says. But we are going to keep being patient with him and make sure that he goes through all the proper channels before we throw him back out there."


Yeah, I don't think he plays on Monday.


Agreed. I was hoping there would be a practice tomorrow before they fly out, but Luke must want to give these guys some time to rest/recover, which makes sense, as the team looks exhausted from the short rotations/big minutes lately.

Iím putting it out there and speaking it into existence right now- BI drops a career high 40 on the Pels Thursday. The Pels will be playing their 3rd game in 3 nights and their 5th game in 6 nights, and BI will have the freshest legs on the court.

The Lakers are going to feed off his energy and blow the Pels out, as Randle will also get his 20+.

Iím gonna assume that just cause there is no practice between Mondayís game, doesnít mean he canít have a private work out with a staff member or the regular shootaround workout to determine if heís ready, so Monday return isnít out of question as long as his body can hold up for a pregame work out.

Well, if youíre going to assume, that changes everything.

I'm just guessing, my man. But Luke letting a guy play without going through a regular practice would be different than how he's handled other injuries throughout the year. If they were making a run at a playoff spot maybe it would be different, but I'd be surprised if Luke felt there was a reason to rush him back.

Oh, I thought you were just making a joke. From the way I read the original quote, it sounds like he won't even be working with the team until Tuesday.

he needs to toughen up a little bit and play, coaching staff also needs to stop and babysit them all the time, Kuzma already showing a lot with that ankle and playing through it.

BS. The kid is tough. Last year he missed only 3 games. He has a legit injury. You don't mess around with groin injuries.

Agreed, 32. BI has always been tough regardless of his skinny frame.

According to my eye test BI has been improving his game all season, and was playing far better and more consistently in February than he was in November. Next season with Randle and BI together? Awesome. We'll see if it happens.

Day to day now. BI or no BI I expect losses at Indy and NO. I hope he can ease back in on low minutes and come out of it pain free this coming week. Maybe start kicking butt again around the time we reach Memphis.


NOP will be playing their 3rd game in 3 nights, I hope we run them out the damn building.

That can't be right they don't play 3 games in a row anymore.

Why? It would benefit nobody to have him play injured. If it were the playoffs, I'm sure he'd be out there. But now? C'mon.

If the training staff determined that Kuz's ankle was too injured to play on, then he wouldn't be out there either.

The Lakers just went 4-4 in a stretch without Ingram against teams that are a combined 58 games over .500, without Hart for the entire time, and without Kuzma for a game as well. They've had to replace Ingram with an actual replacement level player off of the scrap heap (Travis Wear) due to Hart being out, Brewer being gone, and Kuzma playing out of position (and still hurt last night)...and they've still been pretty darn good.

I know you were dying having to wait all of these games before the Lakers had a disappointing loss so you could post a different version of the only post that you ever make here, but if you can't find more substantive ways to contribute to this board, you can find somewhere else to post altogether.

Damn you're right. That's crazy. We will have two days off before that game. We should blow them out.

That's pretty terrible for the team in terms of fatigue .. but for a fan? I'd be pretty thrilled if there was a Laker game 5 out of possible 6 nights lol.

It must be to make up for that game that was canceled because of a leaking roof. That's rough.

Pretty sure the spreadsheets are in agreement with the eye test. He's been great since roughly Feb. Give it up, will you?


Heís been pretty good all season.

Nope, he really hasn't been. If you don't think there is an obvious difference, on the stat sheets (basic & advanced) and on the court, since February... well obviously we weren't watching the same games.
