Chris Broussard of FOX Sports is reporting that Alvin Gentry likes the idea of Lonzo Ball, Jrue Holiday, Zion Williamson, Kyle Kuzma and Brandon Ingram offensively and defensively.
During the season, the Lakers made a run at Anthony Davis with an offer that included the majority of players in their young core, from Lonzo Ball to Kyle Kuzma to Brandon Ingram to Josh Hart and that idea apparently appeals to Gentry. The Lakers of course won’t be the only ones pursuing Davis as the Celtics, the Knicks and the Nets are also expected to make an aggressive run. David Griffin will soon meet with AD and try to convince him to stay in New Orleans while the Pelicans are the only team that can offer him a supermax contract extension.

Brandon Ingram (right arm DVT) is expected to return for the start of next season, and he’ll be looking to build on a campaign that saw him post top-160/225 fantasy value in 8/9-cat leagues.
Ingram scored a career-high 18.3 points per game on a solid .497 from the field, but he’s still got too many stat set issues for our liking. A foundational player averaging 33.8 mpg should be able to produce more than 0.5 steals, 0.6 blocks and 0.6 3-pointers per game, or at least improve on a .675 mark from the line or 2.5 turnovers a night. We’re looking at a worse, more-hyped version of Andrew Wiggins. He did go on a great scoring run when LeBron was sidelined by his groin injury, but even that month with 19.2 points, 6.0 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game on .509 from the field could only get him inside the top-140 in 8-cat leagues. Ingram lost four games to suspension, missed seven games with a left ankle sprain and sat out the final 19 games of the season after being diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis in his right arm and undergoing surgery. He figures to go overvalued in drafts again next year, and really only has appeal as a relatively efficient scorer who can chip in popcorn stats occasionally.

The Lakers announced that Brandon Ingram underwent successful thoracic outlet decompression surgery on his right arm, and Ingram is expected to make a full recovery before the start of next season.
Shams Charania of The Athletic adds that Ingram had the blood clot removed from his arm earlier this week, with today's surgery helping to ensure blood flow. It's good news, and hopefully Ingram can leave this scary health problem in his rearview mirror.

Brandon Ingram (right arm DVT) is expected to miss the remainder of the season.
Ingram underwent further testing on his right shoulder on Friday and has been diagnosed with Deep Venous Thrombosis in his arm, more commonly known as a blood clot. This is a condition with varying degrees of severity and initial speculation has him taking blood thinners with no basketball activities for at least a couple of months. Kyle Kuzma and Josh Hart get a bump in minutes for the rest of the season with JaVale McGee probably sticking in the stating lineup.

Brandon Ingram (shoulder soreness) and Lance Stephenson (toe) are both questionable to play on Saturday vs. the Celtics.
With Kyle Kuzma (ankle) also questionable, Josh Hart is looking at another start though the Celtics are a poor matchup for anyone considering using a Laker as a DFS punt play.

Brandon Ingram will not play vs. the Nuggets on Wednesday due to shoulder soreness.
It looks like the sore shoulder will be keeping Ingram out for another one and with Kyle Kuzma already out as well, the Lakers may have to lean on Josh Hart, who is starting for Ingram, tonight.

Brandon Ingram (shoulder soreness) did not practice on Tuesday and is questionable to play in Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.
The Lakers are hurting badly right now as the injuries are piling up. With Kyle Kuzma already being listed as out for Wednesday's game, the Lakers badly need Ingram to play if they are to keep whatever is left of the season alive. If Ingram is out Reggie Bullock and Josh Hart look to be the main beneficiaries minutes-wise, while Rondo would be locked into PG duties all game.

Brandon Ingram (right shoulder soreness) will miss Monday night's game against the Clippers.
Since he was questionable, it's hopefully not serious enough to also keep him out Wednesday.

Brandon Ingram scored 31 points on 13-for-21 shooting to go along with eight boards, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in Friday's loss to the Bucks.
Ingram has been on fire scoring the basketball as of late and it continued against the Bucks. He's been a top-50 player over the past two weeks before this game, and he should continue with mid-to-late-round value as the Lakers make their desperation push for the playoffs.

Brandon Ingram scored 23 points with six rebounds and Kyle Kuzma scored 22 points with five rebounds in a win over the Pelicans on Wednesday.
Ingram shot 8-of-14 and Kuzma shot 9-of-15, so the two young stars had very similar stat-lines for the Lakers. They both did not make any 3-pointers and added one block to the box score. In the past month, they are right next to each other inside the top-120 value and should bring in late-round value the rest of the way.

Brandon Ingram led the Lakers in scoring on Monday with 32 points while chipping in six boards, four dimes, a steal, a block and three 3-pointers.
Ingram went 12-for-18 from the floor and canned all three of his 3-point attempts. It was a stellar game from Ingram who also went 5-for-6 at the line and if he were to consistently put up cash counters like this we'd be touting him as a must-own player but history shows he won't. His impact has been felt more in reality and we're going to need to see him drain 3s in a couple more games before buying into tonight.

Brandon Ingram scored 29 points on 10-of-18 shooting (3-of-4 3PTs, 6-of-9 FTs) with five rebounds, three assists and five turnovers in Saturday's loss to the Pelicans.
Ingram isn't tearing it up in standard leagues by any stretch and he's not even over the cut line in the past week, but owners should give him added consideration down the stretch in certain team builds.

Brandon Ingram scored 27 points on 8-of-16 shooting with 13 rebounds and an assist against the Rockets on Thursday.
The scoring is nice and he's finally playing to his strengths by taking the ball to the hoop and drawing fouls, but his line is actually empty when you take another look. He went 11-for-14 at the line which is impressive considering he's a .660 free throw shooter on the year, but no peripheral stats and one assist leaves a lot to be desired.

Brandon Ingram shot 7-for-14 from the field and 5-for-6 from the line for 19 points with six boards, one assist and one block in 34 minutes against the Hawks on Tuesday.
Ingram looked lost on defense for much of the game, not stepping up when the Lakers needed him. He also had four turnovers, which proved costly in a close game. His versatility is what makes him valuable, so perhaps owners can shop him around for name value.
