Ingram has been out since March 8. After missing the Pelicans' most recent road trip with a non-COVID illness, Ingram sat out New Orleans' most recent home games against Chicago and San Antonio while gearing up to return against the Lakers.
The Pelicans went 4-6 without Ingram as they continue to push for a spot in the Western Conference play-in tournament.
Larry Nance Jr. (right knee arthroscopy) is out. Nance made his season debut against the Bulls on Thursday, but the Pelicans look like they will rest him on the second night of a back-to-back.
New Orleans, the No. 10 seed in the West, sits a half-game back of the Lakers and one game up on the Spurs in the play-in race. The Pelicans travel to play the Lakers on Friday night in Los Angeles.
The Pelicans defeated the Lakers 123-95 on Feb. 27, and a win Sunday would give them the tiebreaker since the teams play three times this season.
