Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram drew the start on Tuesday, racking up 15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals in 37 minutes of action as the Lakers fell 127-121 to the Denver Nuggets. What It Means: Ingram was starting in place of Luol Deng (wrist), and will likely stay in the starting lineup until Deng returns, a time frame which has so far only been described as "indefinitely". Ingram has struggled so far this season, ranking bottom-five on the Lakers in both true shooting percentage and player efficiency rating. His -5.9 nERD also ranks dead-last in the...

Brandon Ingram fills up the stat-sheet as Lakers come up short against Denver

Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram drew the start on Tuesday, racking up 15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals in 37 minutes of action as the Lakers fell 127-121 to the Denver Nuggets.

Lakers' Luol Deng is out 'indefinitely' with sprained right wrist

The Lakers, like the Clippers, lost a starter to a hand injury on Tuesday, but the news wasn’t quite as devastating as it was for their city rivals, who lost Chris Paul for six to eight weeks after the star point guard tore a ligament in his left thumb. Lakers forward Luol Deng suffered a sprained...

Lakers Injury News: Luol Deng inactive against Nuggets

This is a bit of a surprise. Just when it seemed the Los Angeles Lakers were on track to get their roster back together over the next couple weeks, the injury bug strikes yet again. This time, it’s Luol Deng who will miss time, though it’s unclear how long he might be out beyond Tuesday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets. Several reporters noticed Deng sporting a sizable wrap on his hand, then news dropped shortly thereafter that he would be out tonight. Spectrum SportsNet’s Mike Bresnahan had the news. Luol Deng has a sprained right wrist and will not play tonight vs....

Luke Walton won't (and shouldn't) change the Lakers' starting lineup

Luke Walton won't (and shouldn't) change the Lakers' starting lineup

The starters have been solid over Los Angeles’ last ten games. The Los Angeles Lakers’ starting lineup was a problem for them early in the season. Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov weren’t playing up to the massive contracts the Lakers lavished upon them over the offseason, D’Angelo Russell and Julius Randle faced growing pains, Nick Young was Nick Young, and the whole unit never seemed to truly gel. 45 games into the NBA season that’s no longer the case, and so it was no surprise when Luke Walton told reporters on Tuesday that he didn’t plan on mixing things up any time soon. “I...

Luol Deng (rest) won't suit up for the Lakers against the Clippers

Los Angeles Lakers forward Luol Deng (rest) will miss Saturday's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. What It Means: This is the first game of a back-to-back for the Lakers, and we can expect Deng back in the lineup tomorrow. Look for Brandon Ingram to draw the start in Deng's place on Saturday. Our models project Ingram for 9.7 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 31.8 minutes of action on Saturday. Source: Rotoworld.com

In whathas been a forgetful season for Lakers' Luol Deng, he might have finally turned the corner with the Purple and Gold.At 31 years old, Deng is averaging 8.3 points per game–on track for a career-low–and his defense and quickness, though still good, are not what they used to b...

Brandon Ingram sprains wrist at Lakers' practice, will receiver X-ray

Los Angeles Lakers small forward Brandon Ingram sprained his left wrist at practice on Wednesday and will be getting X-rays. What It Means: It sounds like Ingram is in danger of missing tonight's matchup with the San Antonio Spurs. If that's the case, Luol Deng would likely benefit the most while head coach Luke Walton implement more three-guard lineups. Ingram is projected for 8.1 points, 4.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.0 3-pointers tonight versus the Spurs if he does play, according to our models. Source: Rotoworld.com

Lakers Highlights: D’Angelo Russell’s passing is so good it took 10 years off of Luol Deng’s legs

Deng can still dunk confirmed. Luol Deng is experiencing a revival this month. The Lakers have outscored their opponents by an astonishing 23.8 points per 100 possessions better with him on the floor in January. On some plays, he’s had some help, and on this one it was a borderline unbelievable pass from D’Angelo Russell: Luol Deng throws it down in transition #NBAVote ( : @SpectrumSN & @spectdeportes) pic.twitter.com/fbIl6xb7Mp— Los Angeles Lakers (@Lakers) January 11, 2017 Russell’s passing swag is old school, and it sent Deng streaking.

Luol Deng is becoming comfortable with Lakers' offense

One day after his first missed game of the season, Luol Deng put together perhaps his best game as a Laker. His game against the Miami Heat didn’t mark his highest scoring output of the season, but showed an increased comfort in the Lakers’ offense. “I’m just getting comfortable with how we’re...

Lakers vs. Heat Final Score: Tempers heat up but Lakers too hot for Miami in 127-100 victory

The Heat caught those Lakers hands. The Los Angeles Lakers were too hot for the Miami Heat, scorching them in a 126-100 victory. Brandon Ingram had a great game, tying a career-high in scoring with 17 points along with four pretty dimes and six rebounds. The big story might have been Luol Deng’s revenge game with 19 points, but Jordan Clarkson and Goran Dragic getting ejected for fighting is definitely your lede for the night. Maybe it should be all about Ingram, though, who stood out through the entire game. Whether he was hitting a pretty turnaround jumper, fluttering a leaf up to his...
