Since Ingram’s last game on November 25, he has yet to make a comeback, and it is unclear when he will play again.
The 25-year-old superstar’s health should be closely monitored in the lead-up to each game, but there has been no word yet on when he might resume practice. Until then, it seems like Ingram will have to sit this one out.
