Lakers: Brandon Ingram is staying home from the Lakers’ upcoming twogame road trip due to his sprained left ankle. He was set to have a precautionary MRI Thursday night.
Ingram injured his ankle early in the Lakers’ Wednesday night win over San Antonio when Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge flagrantly fouled him. Ingram is the Lakers’ starting shooting guard and their third-leading scorer with 15.2 points per game. Cavaliers: Center Tristan Thompson has been fined $15,000 by the NBA for making an “inappropriate gesture” to a spectator. Thompson’s action came at the end of the Cavaliers’ 99-97 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Monday at the Barclays Center.
