Forward Brandon Ingram of the Los Angeles Lakers will miss the rest of the Las Vegas Summer League after his right calf cramped up during a game on Friday night, the team announced Saturday.

Ingram, who scored 26 points in the game, fell to the floor while clutching his right leg after missing a potential game-winning shot in a 96-93 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.

"It was just a cramp," Ingram said after the game. "I was ready to get back to play but looked back over to the sidelines and saw Magic (Johnson)."

Johnson, the Lakers' president of basketball operations, shot Ingram a look and the 20-year-old remained on the bench.

The Lakers said Ingram, the second overall pick in the 2016 draft, probably will remain with the team and practice when he is able.
