Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram has been ruled out of Saturday night's game against the San Antonio Spurs with a strained left hip flexor. Ingram will undergo an MRI on the injury in Los Angeles on Sunday. The forward injured his hip while being fouled and taking a spill in the second half of the Lakers' 131-113 victory in Miami on Thursday. "There's still pain in that area," Lakers coach Luke Walton said. "He got up this morning and did some stuff and still had too much pain, so he didn't participate in shootaround." "I am not sure how long he will be out," Walton added. "We will kind of see how he feels and then tomorrow and the next day and hopefully get him back sooner rather than later but we will take our time with it." Ingram's injury comes as he is playing his best basketball of the season. In February, while starting at point guard for an injured Lonzo Ball coming back from a sprained left MCL, Ingram averaged 18.6 points, 5.6 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks while shooting 54.5 percent from the field.
