This is a tough break for Lakers fans, because the kid was really cooking as of late.

Saturday on the road against the Dallas Mavericks​, Brandon Ingram drove into the lane, but bumped into Mavs veteran Devin Harris.

​​The contact hobbled him, and caused him to come up limping. He had to leave the game with what was described as a "mild" sprain of his left ankle.

While watching the highlight, though, you can clearly see Harris flopped here. This definitely played a role in Ingram getting injured. 

Hopefully, Ingram was held out of action as a precaution and can return to action in due time. After prevailing in today's game in overtime, the Lakers ​have now won four games in a row

Keeping the mojo working will go a long way to quieting the rumors of a ​potential ouster of head coach Luke Walton, and Ingram figures to play an ever-expanding role for the purple and gold.
