EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Brandon Ingram is staying home from the Los Angeles Lakers' upcoming two-game road trip due to his sprained left ankle.

Ingram will have 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.
