Brandon Ingram injury not serious?

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram did not play in the fourth quarter of Thursday’s 102-91 win over the New York Knicks because of a sprained right ankle. Pelicans head coach Willie Green told reporters after the game that Ingram could not have played in the final 12 minutes and the team will further evaluate him when they get back to New Orleans. There are no plans to do an MRI on Ingram at the moment and they’ll see how his ankle feels when they return home before taking any further steps, sources told ESPN. Cameras showed Ingram seated on the bench in the fourth quarter without a shoe on his right foot.

Alex Kennedy: Brandon Ingram has a DVT – a blood clot that forms in the [arm] (usually when immobile, like on a flight). A DVT can become a pulmonary embolism. That’s what Chris Bosh had. It can kill you. He’ll need to take a blood-thinning med for a few months. You can’t play while on that med. (…) If Brandon Ingram gets 2nd DVT, he’d need to be on a blood-thinning med long-term to prevent a possibly lethal clot. You can’t play while on that med because you’re at risk of a bleeding episode. Hopefully this is a one-time thing. Otherwise, he may be in same boat as Chris Bosh.

Adrian Wojnarowski: Booker and Towns’ representative, Jessica Holtz, is the first female player agent to secure a max contract — and did it with two super max deals on the same day. Booker and Towns’ representative, Jessica Holtz, is the first female player agent to secure a max contract — and did it with two super max deals on the same day.
As the first day of free agency nears a close, distance remains between the contract desires of Kevon Looney and Gary Payton II and the willingness from the Warriors to meet that number, sources told The Athletic. In particular, the odds that Payton departs the Warriors are rising rapidly, with the internal belief they are likely to lose him.
Facing a record tax bill multiplying each additional dollar spent by nearly seven, the Warriors entered free agency intent on avoiding any overpay that the market doesn’t demand. They want to bring both Looney and Payton back. Both players prefer a reunion with the defending champions, if the price is right. That’s where the current separation exists.
