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.
Brandon Ingram (right ankle sprain) will not return tonight in Chicago.
