Brandon Ingram Discusses Toe Injury, Recovery for Pelicans

Brandon Ingram, a forward for the Pelicans, has now been sidelined for more than a month due to a left big toe contusion that he first suffered on November 25. His remarks to the media on Thursday don’t seem to indicate that his return is close at hand. Confidence in pushing off, Ingram responded when asked what was stopping him. confidence in returning to my desired self. becoming explosively aggressive Trying to be who I am. The major issue is that. William Guillory of The Athletic said, “If I don’t feel like myself, then I know it’s not time to be on the floor.

Guillory reports that Ingram just mentioned that the recovery process has been unpredictable but made no mention of how to deal with pain. According to Christian Clark of, when the 25-year-old was asked if he was close to returning, his response was very evasive.

“It’s difficult to say. On some days, I feel fantastic, but my recuperation is terrible. Sometimes recuperation goes well. I’ll try it whenever I’m feeling fully capable. But for now, it’s difficult to say,” Ingram said.

In contrast to 2021–22, when the Pelicans suffered greatly without the former All-Star, the squad performs admirably in 2022–23 with Ingram out. However, in 15 games (32.1 MPG), he was averaging 20.1 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 4.7 APG, and 0.9 SPG on.472/.467/.868 shooting and was the Pelicans’ top performer in last year’s playoffs, so they are undoubtedly a better team when he is present.

Positively, second-year defensive stud Herbert Jones returned to practice on Thursday, according to Clark. Jones was added to the safety and health procedures over the weekend.
