NBA.com staff and Twitter reports

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram left Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bulls with a sprained right ankle.

Ingram appeared to injured the ankle when he stepped on Bulls forward Chandler Hutchison’s foot on a drive to the basket late in the second quarter.

Ingram got his ankle re-taped and returned to the floor in the second half but exited with 6:33 left in the third quarter after motioning to the bench that he needed to come out.

Shortly after, the Pelicans announced he would not return.

A first-time All-Star, Ingram has played in 47 of the Pelicans’ 52 games this season.
