Ingram has missed the past two months with an injured big toe. His return should offer New Orleans a boost, given that power forward Zion Williamson is expected to remain out for at least another two weeks with a hamstring injury.

The Pelicans (26-22) have had a pretty good run, anyway, as they enter Wednesday in fourth place in the Western Conference — though just two games ahead of the eighth-place Jazz.

Ingram, 25, is 6-foot-8 and has appeared in 20 games this season, averaging 20.8 points, 5.1 rebounds and 4.7 assists. He is shooting 47 percent from the field and 47 percent on 3-pointers.

He is in his fourth season in New Orleans after spending the first three years of his career with the Lakers, making the All-Star team in 2019-20 (with the Pelicans).
