Pelicans' Brandon Ingram (head) cleared to play vs. Nets

New Orleans Pelicans forward Brandon Ingram was not listed on the injury report Sunday evening and will be cleared to play Monday night against the Brooklyn Nets.

Ingram left Saturday's game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a head injury and did not play in the second half.

Ingram was evaluated for a concussion but was not diagnosed with one, a team source told ESPN. The team monitored him on Sunday to see if he developed any symptoms and when he didn't, cleared him to play Monday.

In the loss to the Thunder, Ingram had just seven points in 13 minutes.

In his first five games, Ingram averaged 26.8 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.8 assists per game while shooting 51.0 percent from the field and 50.0 from deep with at least two 3-pointers in every game.

Pelicans forward Derrick Favors could make his return on Monday. Favors has missed the last three games with right knee soreness.
