    Brandon Ingram started at power forward for the injured Zion Williamson and scored 16 points, along with six rebounds, three assists and two treys in Friday's 117-116 win vs. the Knicks.

    Ingram slid to the power forward spot with J.J. Redick starting. He once again did not produce any defensive stats which is the downfall in his fantasy game along with efficiency. He will still provide value in scoring and rebounding in a fast-paced Pelicans offense.

    Brandon Ingram scored 18 points (7-for-15 shooting) to go along with six rebounds, three assists and one steal in Friday's win over the Jazz.

    Ingram has yet to produce at the level his draft stock would suggest he should but there is hope he can find his groove in the fast-paced Pelicans system. Playing next to Zion Williamson could provide enough opportunities for him to attack the defense.

    Brandon Ingram scored 19 points on 6-of-12 shooting while adding six rebounds, an assist, a steal and two triples in Monday's preseason game against the Hawks.

    Ingram's ADP is sliding due to his efficiency issues and inability to put up consistent defensive numbers, but there's still value in his scoring and rebounding numbers. There's some cushion for him at his ADP due to the Pelicans' fast paced offense.

    Brandon Ingram said on Monday that he expects to be healthy going forward regarding his previous blood clot issue.

    It's great news for Ingram, who had quite a scare last season as we remembered how Chris Bosh's playing career was cut short. Ingram said he doesn't need medication for the issue anymore, so there's hope that he's completely past it in time to restart his career in New Orleans.

    According to Andrew Lopez, Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram have been full participants in voluntary team workouts.

    It's great news for the two former number two picks as they enter their age-22 seasons with a fresh start. Neither Ball nor Ingram has played in 60 games in either of the past two seasons due to injuries. Ingram has never cracked the top 110/170 (8-cat/9-cat), but he could easily beat that in New Orleans with a quick tempo and new role. Ball had a top 60/85 finish in his rookie season, so there's definitely upside here. Lonzo does have a very wide range of possible outcomes, so draft him only if you're feeling risky.

    According to head coach Alvin Gentry, the Pelicans should lead the NBA in pace next season or he will be "very disappointed."

    He pointed out Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Derrick Favors as rebounders that can push the ball in a Draymond Green-esque manner. Gentry said that the teams that run that style of offense have at least one big man that can push the ball up the floor, and he believes that they have multiple guys like that. The Pelicans are seemingly going to shift to a "seven seconds or less" offense if Gentry stays true to his word, which could benefit the fantasy value of all rotational pieces on the roster.

    Brandon Ingram (right arm DVT) said that he's "really close" to resuming normal workouts.

    Ingram underwent surgery on March 16 and the Pelicans have been consistent in saying they have no long-term concerns about Ingram's health. We're fully expecting him to be ready for training camp, though you'll want to keep an eye out for further updates as camp approaches. Ingram's stat set has the same holes as always, but it's possible that this season he'll become a featured player and bludgeon his way to enough volume to make up for his weak spots. His outlook improves on what it would've been with the Lakers, but Ingram still looks like a player that will be overdrafted.

    David Griffin said on Saturday that the Pelicans have no long-term concerns about Brandon Ingram, who was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis in his right arm last season.

    Ingram is fully expected to be ready for training camp later this month. He underwent surgery in mid-March and was limited to 52 games in his third season. The move to New Orleans should help Ingram somewhat since he's no longer being moved aside on a roster where he's a questionable fit, though his stat set issues make him a late-round flier more than anything.

    Lonzo Ball, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart are now officially Pelicans after the announcement of the completion of the Anthony Davis trade on Saturday.

    Ball is expected to slide into the starting point guard role, while Ingram and Hart will need to find spots in the Pelicans' rotation. All three players were stuck in a late-round value rut in L.A., so hopefully a change in scenery do them wonders.

    Brandon Ingram (right arm DVT) is expected to be back and on the court and ready for training camp in July.

    This is great news for Ingram and the Pelicans as he was dealing with blood clots in his shoulder last season. He'll need all of the preparation he can get as he begins his career with New Orleans. This is also good for fantasy owners as he's likely to be healthy for the regular season and his health won't have an impact on his draft stock.
