Lakers' Ingram (shoulder) misses 2nd straight

A right shoulder injury kept Lakers forward Brandon Ingram out for a second straight game Wednesday night as Los Angeles lost 115-99 at home to the Denver Nuggets.

Lakers head coach Luke Walton said the team isn't sure when Ingram hurt his shoulder but that he is experiencing pain whenever he lifts his right arm. Ingram also missed Monday's 113-105 loss to the LA Clippers.

Also ruled out for the Lakers for Wednesday's contest were starting forward Kyle Kuzma, who injured his right ankle late in Monday's loss, and center Tyson Chandler, who is nursing a neck injury.

Josh Hart scored seven points while starting for Kuzma, who could miss a week or more.

Forward Lance Stephenson, who had missed three straight games with an injured toe, scored three points in nine minutes off the bench in his return.
