Paul George Unsure Of Future With Thunder As NBA Free Agency Looms

Oklahoma City did a lot right in its upset of Golden State, and the team is expected to have Carmelo Anthony back in the lineup after he left after just six minutes with an ankle injury.

Lakers guard Josh Hart started his third straight game and has reached double figures in points and rebounds in all three, earning a new nickname.

Los Angeles is riding a three-game winning streak both straight up and against the spread. Starting point guard Lonzo Ball was already ruled out with a sprained left MCL in his knee, and the Lakers are without Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance Jr.

The teams will get together for the second time in five days and fourth time in five weeks when Los Angeles hosts Oklahoma City Thursday at Staples Center.

Westbrook appears to have suffered the injury during Tuesday's emphatic win over the Warriors despite posting 34 points, nine rebounds and nine assists during that contest.

"We know it's part of the business", Ingram said in a postgame interview on TNT.

George is averaging 22.0 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.

"I don't know if whether I'm going to LA, or what I'm going to do this offseason".

Oklahoma City had been starting rookie Terrance Ferguson at shooting guard since Andre Roberson went down with a season-ending knee injury on January 27, but coach Billy Donovan started small forward Josh Huestis in place of Ferguson on Tuesday because of the length of Golden State's wings. Against Dallas on November 13 when Anthony sat with a sore back, Donovan started Jerami Grant at power forward.

"With as hard as it was to put the ball in the basket, we kept trying to battle and fight defensively and did some good things", Thunder coach Billy Donovan said. Fouled Out_None.
