Injury Updates for Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson
- Hot game:
- Bucks vs. Raptors Injury Reports: Is Giannis Antetokounmpo, Pascal Siakam JOINING tonight?
- Injury Reports Lakers – Heat: Are LeBron James and Anthony Davis READY tonight?
After snapping a five-game winning streak with a 116-101 loss to the Memphis Grizzlies on New Year’s Eve, the New Orleans Pelicans were defeated 120-111 by the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday.
Injury Reports: Zion Williamson (hamstring) and Brandon Ingram (toe) and Larry Nance Jr. (neck).
Willie Green, the team’s head coach, stated on Wednesday that Brandon Ingram (toe) has been on the court recently but isn’t yet ready to return to game action.
Ingram’s return to action is still unknown, but he appears to be making progress. The team should provide more information on Ingram’s condition as his return to the lineup approaches. Ingram hasn’t played since November 25th, when he faced the Grizzlies.
Zion Williamson (hamstring) will be out for several weeks.
Williamson had an MRI on his hamstring earlier in the day, and the results were not encouraging. In his three years in the league, the star big man has a history of long injuries, and he will now add another to the list. The most likely beneficiary of his absence appears to be Naji Marshall.
The Houston Rockets extended their losing streak to four games on Monday, falling 111-106 to the Dallas Mavericks.
Jae’Sean Tate (ankle) won’t play in Wednesday’s game versus the Pelicans and doesn’t have a timetable for his return.
