Duke in the NBA: Brandon Ingram fills stat sheet in Return to Lakers

The former Duke basketball freshman standout Brandon Ingram made his return to the floor on Monday night after his four game suspension.

The four games are up for Brandon Ingram and he is back on the floor for the Los Angeles Lakers, who need all the help they can get at this point.

Ingram was suspended on October 20. Ingram was the most suspended player in his teammate Rajon Rondo was suspended two games and the Rockets Chris Paul was only suspended two games.

However, Lakers Head Coach Luke Walton inserts Ingram right back into the starting lineup on Monday night against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

In his return to action, Ingram scored 24 points, while grabbing five rebounds, dishing out two assists, and swatting three shots.

25 minutes, the second of a Lakers starter behind Lonzo Ball, and what the only Lakers starter to have a positive +/- on the night, with +3.

The Lakers fell to the Timberwolves 124-120, while dropping their record to 2-5 on the very young season.

Ingram shot 50% from the floor, making nine of his eighteen shot attempts, making three of his four attempts at the free throw line.

The Lakers are in desperate need of both scoring and defense and ingram can provide both with his length in being able to shoot defenders and his quickness being able to defend multiple positions on the floor.

Former Duke basketball star Tyus Jones also played in this game for the Timberwolves and scored three points in 16 minutes of action.

Sitting a 2-5, the Lakers wants to get back on the floor Wednesday night at home against the Dallas Mavericks as they look to their back on track at the berth for the first time since 2013.
