UPDATE (Apr. 04):

Brandon Ingram has been the driving force behind the Pelicans’ recent success, scoring 25 or more points in nine consecutive games.

With Zion Williamson (hamstring) likely to miss the rest of the regular season, the Pelicans can count on Ingram to continue to produce big numbers in his role as the team’s unquestioned No. 1 option throughout the remaining four games of 2022-23.

UPDATE (Apr. 01):

The Pelicans ended their four-game road trip with a 107-88 victory in Denver on Thursday.

Brandon Ingram scored 31 points, grabbed 11 boards, and dished out 10 assists for his third triple-double of the season.

A week after recording his first triple-double in the NBA, Ingram recorded another one on Thursday.

The veteran forward is single-handedly keeping the Pelicans in the playoff picture as Zion Williamson (hamstring) nears a comeback, averaging 29.6 points, 8.3 assists, and 6.3 rebounds over his last eight games.

UPDATE (Mar. 30):

Brandon Ingram will play against the Nuggets on Thursday.

Brandon Ingram scored 30 points and added 11 boards and 10 assists for a triple-double.

UPDATE (Mar. 23):

Ingram helped the Grizzlies beat the Spurs 119-84 on Tuesday. He had 32 points (10-16 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 10-10 FT), four rebounds, seven assists, and one block in 31 minutes of play.

Ingram hurt his ankle in mid-March and missed two games, but he has been on a roll ever since. He has averaged 27.8 points, 7.0 assists, 4.0 rebounds, and 36.5 minutes on the court in his last four games. Even though the score was so bad on Wednesday and he didn’t play as much, he shot well and led the Pelicans in scoring. Recent games haven’t shown that the 25-year-ankle old’s injury is bothering him, and he should continue to play a big role as the season winds down.

UPDATE (Mar. 19):

Friday night, the Pelicans were defeated by the Houston Rockets 114-112.

A loss occurred despite Brandon Ingram’s 31 points and 6 assists for the Pelicans.

The importance of Brandon Ingram’s return to the team cannot be overstated. A more pressing issue is the defense, and how to prevent further breakdowns like the one on Friday night.

UPDATE (Mar. 15):

Ingram had 22 points, six rebounds, six assists, two steals, and one block in 38 minutes during Tuesday’s 123-108 loss to the Lakers. He made 9 of 17 shots from the field, 1 of 5 three-point attempts, and 3 of 4 free throws.

Ingram had missed the last two games for the Pelicans because of a sprained right ankle, but he was back in action on Tuesday and had a great game all around while playing the usual number of minutes. The star forward has averaged 25.4 points per game and shot 49.2% from the field in his last 10 games.
