Ingram was averaging 25.6 points and 6.9 rebounds in his last 10 games.
He had started every game this season before the injury.
Ingram had missed the past two games after Walton said he had difficulty raising his arm without pain.
Ball wasn't the only Laker that was ruled out for the rest of the season on Saturday.
These five players should benefit the most from the minutes that have been made available recently and with the team seemingly no longer looking to win games.
The arrival of James helped fulfill part of that promise, and the Lakers made a strong push to pair him with the Pelicans' Davis before the National Basketball Association trade deadline in February.
Eagles expected to sign Malik Jackson
Reports indicate the Bucs will get back a 2019 6th round pick and the Eagles will get the Bucs' 2019 7th round pick in the deal. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo confirms that the Bucs are shopping Jackson and a return to Philly is not out of the question.
The Lakers are 15-8 with James, Ball and Ingram all in their lineup, but they've largely struggled whenever one of the trio is out.
"Just having that break, being able to reassess and come back really, really highly motivated, I think it's going to be big for him", Love said.
Prominent athletes such as Chris Bosh and Serena Williams have been affected by blood clots in recent years.
First, it was Brandon Ingram. Bosh had to retire due to blood clotting issues.
With the Lakers' season fading as they fall further out of playoff contention, the organization will play it safe with its young prospects. A year ago he dealt with a knee injury and was unable to get much work done during the offseason.
Ball should have a normal offseason for the first time.
