Essentially, Ingram has a blood clot in one of his deep veins, causing soreness in his shoulder. This is obviously serious, but treatable.
This comes on the heels of the possibility of Lonzo Ball also missing the remainder of the season. Out of playoff contention, the Lakers are going to be very short-handed the rest of the way.
