Brandon Ingram is staying home from the Los Angeles Lakers' upcoming two-game road trip because of his sprained left ankle.

Ingram had a precautionary MRI exam Thursday night.

Ingram injured his ankle early in the Lakers' 121-113 victory over San Antonio on Wednesday night when Spurs center LaMarcus Aldridge flagrantly fouled him.

Ingram is the Lakers' starting shooting guard and their third-leading scorer with 15.2 points per game. The No. 2 overall pick in the 2016 draft also averages 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists.

The Lakers (15-9) visit San Antonio on Friday night and Memphis on Saturday before returning home to face Miami on Monday.

The Lakers have won 13 of their last 17 during their first season with LeBron James.

Kyrie Irving exits game

with shoulder problem

Boston Celtics point guard Kyrie Irving left Thursday night's game against the New York Knicks, nursing his right shoulder in the final minutes.

Kyried scored 22 points. With about four minutes left in the game, he started rubbing his right shoulder and swinging it around while grimacing in pain. He raised his hand for coach Brad Stevens to take him out of the game but couldn't get his attention. He walked to the bench at the next whistle.

The shoulder was wrapped in ice when he walked off the court at the end of the game.
