Ingram suffered the injury in the first half of Los Angeles’ matchup with the Spurs when he came down on LaMarcus Aldridge’s foot and turned his ankle.
Brandon Ingram missed both previous games vs Spurs -San Antonio won both.
Conspiracy me believes this would explain why LaMarcus Aldridge would make a dirty play.

Aldridge was called for a Flagrant 1 on the play for not giving Ingram a chance to land after his shot.
Ingram went for an X-ray and it came back negative. He had five points on 2-of-2 shooting with a blocked shot before leaving the game.
The 21-year-old is averaging 15.7 points and 4.2 rebounds per game this season.
