New Orleans Pelicans star Brandon Ingram exited Thursday night's game against the Orlando Magic after an apparent left knee injury. 

The incident occurred early in the third quarter as Ingram defended against Jalen Suggs' drive to the basket, resulting in an awkward bend of his left knee. Ingram immediately fell to the floor in evident pain and had to be assisted off the court.

Pelicans head coach Willie Green expressed concern over Ingram's condition, stating that the team awaits MRI results to assess the extent of the injury. "Our prayers will be going up, and hopefully, we get some good news back," Green remarked post-game.

The timing of Ingram's injury raises fears of potential playoff implications for the Pelicans, who have surged in recent months and currently sit at the fifth seed in the competitive Western Conference.
 
With only 13 regular-season games remaining, any significant absence could impact the team's postseason aspirations.

Despite the setback, the Pelicans have demonstrated depth and resilience throughout the season, with players like Trey Murphy III ready to step up in Ingram's potential absence.

However, the team awaits further updates on Ingram's condition to gauge their playoff prospects effectively. More updates to follow as the situation develops.
