Lakers Reveal: "Brandon Ingram Expected To Miss Remainder Of Season"

Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram

Nearly certainly, no. But trading LeBron James is a thought ESPN analyst Jeff Van Gundy floated Saturday during Los Angeles' latest loss, its fifth straight, this one at home to Boston, 120-107. While a loss on the night would nearly certainly put the dagger in what already seems like a futile effort, the win (albeit expected) was necessary to keep the Lakers afloat.

James did not play in eighteen games. And Josh Hart continues to play despite a knee injury that has been ailing him for a few months. The Lakers were 6-12 without James.

Walton said he spoke to the Lakers about Ingram's condition, and LeBron James said Ingram was with the Lakers earlier in the day before they played without three injured starters in a 120-107 loss to the Celtics.

Bulls: Visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Friday. It appears he may have. Cedi Osman added 18 and put the Cavs ahead 97-96 with under 3 minutes to go as boos rained down in Philly. The difference in points per game is huge.

Having Ball on the bench for the rest of the season obviously isn't ideal, but the Lakers aren't playing for anything more than their pride at this stage of the season. In 35 games this year, his 11th season in the G League, Ingram is averaging 8.6 points per game.

When Ingram finally checked in with 1:53 left in the first quarter, the crowd at the Staples Center rose to its feet.

United Kingdom home secretary criticised over death of Shamima Begum's baby
Kirsty McNeill, a director at Save the Children UK, said it is possible the baby's death could have been avoided. But the spokesperson added the UK Foreign Office "has consistently advised against travel to Syria" since 2011.

The "LeBron Era" Lakers do have hope.

To make matters even worse, The Athletic'sˆBill Oram recently reported that following the acquisition of James, Magic had ignored a number of pleas from L.A.'s coaching staff to bring back Lopez and forward Julius Randle, who is now posting career-best numbers for the Pelicans.

After the win neither projection model offered the Lakers better chances, with both holding firm at less than one percent.

That had Jackson saying flatly, "Okay, LeBron James is not getting traded".

According to reports, Lonzo Ball is expected to stay out for the remainder of the season due to an ankle injury.
