SAN DIEGO, Calif.

After suffering from knee tendinitis late in the season, Ingram recognizes the significant role that bracing and support products play during the long basketball season. As an ambassador of DonJoy Performance products, Ingram will promote the use of braces and support sleeves for injury prevention and recovery.

“We are excited to team up with Brandon at the beginning of his career and provide him with the leading sports medicine products needed to help prevent injuries and keep him in the game,” said Charlie Setzler, GM, DonJoy Performance.

Ingram was the No. 2 pick in the 2016 NBA draft and is an emerging star known for his work ethic, attitude and fundamentally sound game. He is part of a young nucleus of players that Lakers fans hope will bring the franchise into a new golden era of championship play.
