EL SEGUNDO — After rarely showing any signs of fatigue during his rookie season, Lakers forward Brandon Ingram will miss his second consecutive game on Tuesday against the Washington Wizards because of patellar tendinitis in his right knee.

Ingram will travel with the Lakers for Thursday’s game in Minnesota, but it’s not currently clear if he will play. The Lakers plan to practice in Minnesota on Wednesday in what would mark Ingram’s first practice since injuring his knee at the end of Thursday’s practice. Although he played on Friday against Minnesota, Ingram sat out the entire fourth quarter and overtime period after feeling more pain in his knee.

Lakers veteran forward Corey Brewer will start for the second consecutive game after posting three points on 1-of-5 shooting in 19 minutes on Sunday against Portland.

Meanwhile, the Lakers are listing third-year guard Jordan Clarkson as probable after suffering a contusion in the fifth metacarpal of his right hand in Sunday’s game against Portland. Lakers veteran guard Nick Young will sit out for the fifth consecutive game, but Walton said he has not formally shut Young down as he has with veteran forward Luol Deng and center Timofey Mozgov.

    Stay home mom Kelly Richards from New York City after resigning from her regular employment managed to average from $6000-$8000 per 30 days from freelancing at home…I enquired her about how she discovered her tight lip secret. “Honestly, this really is simpler than you would think, all I did was complete a basic form to get front line access to the Home Profit System. I acquired the instruction manuals tool kit and within thirty days I was earning over $4,000 every 30 days. The directions are quite simple, I am not a computer whiz, but I can use the internet. I fill up forms and surf online sites, I do not even have to sell anything and nobody has to buy anything. It is as easy as being on facebook or twitter.” This is how she done it >>
