Los Angeles Lakers forward Brandon Ingram will be out for at least one week after an MRI revealed a left groin strain.

Ingram, 20, suffered the injury in last Thursday's game against the Miami Heat and underwent an MRI at UCLA Health on Sunday. He will be re-evaluated in approximately one week, the team said in a release Monday.

The Lakers play home games against Portland on Monday night and Orlando on Wednesday before traveling to Denver on Friday. The Lakers then face Cleveland at home on Sunday.

Kyle Kuzma started in place of Ingram when he missed the Lakers' last game at San Antonio on Saturday.

Ingram, the No. 2 overall pick in 2016, is averaging 16.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.9 assists in his second season with the Lakers.
