Brandon Ingram of the New Orleans Pelicans is no stranger to the injured list, as he’s been there a lot in his short career.

Ingram has only played 70 or more games in a season once, his rookie season, when he played in 79 games for the Los Angles Lakers, 40 of which were as a starter.

Since then Ingram has been hit with myriad ailments and injuries that have forced him out for at least a portion of the season. After his rookie season, Ingram played in 59, 52, 62 and 61 games in the four seasons that followed and has already missed time int 2021-22 before getting hit with this latest injury.

Here is the latest update, as well as a short history of Brandon Ingram’s injuries. Updated November 26, 2022.

November 26, 2022: Brandon Ingram leaves game with a sprained toe

BI had to leave the most recent game against Memphis after just 18 minutes with what is being called a toe sprain. He didn’t return to the game and is now listed as day-to-day.

October 24, 2022: Brandon Ingram goes out with concussion-like symptoms

In the Pelicans’ loss to the Jazz, Ingram ran into teammate Naji Marshall and had to come out of the game. He did attempt a return but left again after a short time and never came back. He is being evaluated for “concussion-like” symptoms and is listed as day-to-day.

This not the first time Ingram has been evaluated for a concussion, so I am sure the medical staff will be cautious.

March 2022: Brandon Ingram out for 7-10 days with a hamstring injury

There still hasn’t been an update on Brandon Ingram’s strained hamstring, but he did not travel with the team on their current road trip due to a non-COVID illness. He will hopefully be available when the Pelicans return home to play the Bulls on March 24th.

January 2022: Brandon Ingram out with an ankle injury

Ingram has now missed two games in a row due to an ankle injury that is still being called minor. The Pelicans are in the midst of six games in nine days, so could definitely use the services of their leading scorer.

Ingram has now missed two games after three days off, so this sprain must have been a little more than mild.

December 2021: Brandon Ingram goes down with an Achilles injury

Brandon Ingram’s injury was to his Achilles and we still don’t know the severity, though he is listed as doubtful for tonight’s game, which is actually a good sign, as they haven’t ruled out his return.

But Achilles’ injuries are serious, so if he has to miss extended time, or even the rest of the season, I wouldn’t be shocked, but am still hoping for the best.

October 2021: Brandon Ingram injuries his hip

Earlier in the 2021-22 season, Ingram had to miss seven games after suffering a hip contusion. The Pelicans have had a winning record since he returned and he was arguably playing the best basketball of his career.

March 2019: Ingram does down with deep vein thrombosis

In March of 2019, Brandon Ingram was diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis, a potentially serious problem that many thought would threaten his career. The Pelicans made him the centerpiece of the Anthony Davis trade anyway, and it worked out, but it was risky, as Ingram had missed the final 19 games of the 2018-19 season.

March 2018: Brandon Ingram suffers a strained hip and concussion

March 2019 was not a good one for Ingram’s health, as he suffered a strained left hip flexor, returned from injury and then promptly got a concussion that cost him the rest of his season.
