Brandon Ingram (quad tendinitis) was a full participant in shootaround and is “trending towards playing” against the Grizzlies on Wednesday.
Ingram will be on a minutes restriction if he suits up tonight after missing the last two games. His return will send Josh Hart back to the bench and will take some usage away from Kyle Kuzma. Ingram is only producing at a top-200 level, but is still ownable in shallow leagues due to his potential upside later in the season and if you are punting efficiency. The 20-year-old was top-85 over the last four games so the potential is there, but we probably won’t see any major fantasy leaps till next season.
