Ingram left the game on Friday with a sprained left big toe, and further testing revealed no structural damage, but he appears to be a long shot to play in this one. If Ingram is ruled out, his next chance to play will be Wednesday at home against the Raptors.

The extent of Ingram’s injury is unknown, but it should be noted that the Grizzlies were leading New Orleans by more than 30 points at the time of the team’s decision. As a result, there was no need for them to reintroduce him into the game. In 18 minutes, he finished with eight points (2-6 FG, 0-1 3PT, 4-4 FT), three rebounds, and three assists.

The Pelicans are facing an injury crisis just three games into the season, with both Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram suffering injuries in Sunday night’s loss to the Utah Jazz.

During the first quarter of the game, Ingram suffered a concussion and was placed in the NBA’s concussion protocol.

Ingram suffered a concussion after colliding with teammate Naji Marshall while racing back on defense to stop a Jazz fastbreak.

The 25-year-old immediately went to the bench, and while he returned briefly in the second quarter, he was forced to leave the game with 5:44 left in the first half.

In 11 minutes on the court, he scored 10 points on 4-of-5 shooting. Ingram has been one of the Pelicans’ most productive players through three games, averaging 22.0 points, 5.7 rebounds, 4.0 assists, and 1.3 steals per game on 57.9 percent shooting and 57.1 percent from the 3-point line.

Due to the NBA’s concussion protocol, which requires players to wait 24 hours before beginning the return-to-participation process, Ingram was forced to miss at least one game. He appears to be missing a lot more than that.
