Brandon Ingram gets stitches near right eye after Dario Saric falls on his head (VIDEO)
Brandon Ingram has taken a step forward this season in New Orleans, a team that has put the ball in his hands a lot and trusted the forward to make plays. Ingram is averaging 25.4 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 4.1 assists a game, shooting 41.5 percent from three, and is playing at a level that will get him All-Star consideration. He just happens to be doing all that in a contract year.
Which is why this was a scary moment: Phoenix’s Dario Saric fell on Ingram’s head.
Ingram went back to the locker room but the result was just stitches, according to the team.
