Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson both had previous injuries that were reported to be minor. How long will it take them to return?
Injury report for The Pelicans’s Brandon Ingram and Zion Williamson
The Pelicans injury
On Saturday’s official injury report, Zion Williamson (right posterior hip/low back contusion) and Herb Jones (right knee hyperextension) are listed as questionable.
However, this usually means that it will be a game-time decision, and he will almost certainly play.
Dyson Daniels (left ankle sprain), Brandon Ingram (concussion protocols), Kira Lewis Jr. (right knee ACL injury recovery), and E.J. Liddell were all listed as out for the Pelicans (right knee ACL injury recovery).
According to Will Guillory of The Athletic, Brandon Ingram will be out for at least the next three games.
Ingram is currently averaging 22.0 points and 5.7 rebounds per game in three games played.
With the Pelicans, Ingram has developed into one of the league’s best players.
New Orleans has spent the last two games trying to make up for the absences of three starters due to injuries. There is a chance that number will be reduced against the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday afternoon (2 p.m., Bally Sports, 99.5 FM), but that will be determined on gameday.
Los Angeles Clippers injury
The Los Angeles Clippers lost both games against the Oklahoma City Thunder in Oklahoma City. The first game was played without Kawhi and Paul George, and the second without Kawhi. This gives them a 2-3 record to begin the season.
Things aren’t looking good for the team as they prepare to host the Pelicans. Due to knee injury management, Kawhi Leonard is listed as OUT. This is his third missed game in a row.

Fans are questioning the true nature of Kawhi’s injury and whether it is still managed or if something more serious has occurred.
Things got worse for the team when Robert Covington was later ruled out for violating the league’s health and safety protocols.
Robert Covington is UNCERTAIN about his illness.
Moussa Diabate, Jason Preston, and Brandon Boston have been assigned to the G-League.
