Brandon Ingram, the star player for the New Orleans Pelicans, has been out for the past two games due to an ankle injury.

The Pelicans have struggled without him and have only managed to win one out of their last two games.

Fans are eagerly anticipating his return, especially as the Los Angeles Lakers are set to play the Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center.

Initially, the Pelicans listed Ingram as questionable for the game against the Lakers due to a right ankle sprain.

However, before tipoff, the team announced that Ingram will be available to play against his former team.

This news will surely be a relief to Pelicans fans who have been eagerly awaiting his return.

While Ingram will be back, Zion Williamson will still be out with a right hamstring strain.

This will be a significant loss for the Pelicans, as Williamson is one of the team's most dynamic players.

Ingram is currently in his seventh year in the NBA and fourth year as a member of the Pelicans franchise.

He has been putting up impressive numbers this season, averaging 22.9 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 4.8 assists per game.

He is also shooting the ball with great efficiency from behind the three-point arc, with a current three-point percentage of 39.3%, a personal best.

Both the Lakers and the Pelicans are currently fighting for their playoff lives with the same record of 33-35.

As such, Tuesday's game is expected to be a tight one, even with Ingram back in the lineup.

Fans are hoping for an exciting game that will keep them on the edge of their seats until the final buzzer.

In any case, the good news is that Ingram will be playing against the Lakers, and his presence will surely be a boost for the Pelicans.
