Russell Westbrook, Carmelo Anthony out against Lakers

The Oklahoma City Thunder power forward initially remained in the game and was said to be available to return after going to the locker room to get his ankle re-taped.

Westbrook is dealing with a sprained ankle and is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers, Royce Young of ESPN reports. He had 22 points at the break, making 8 of 14 shots from the field and 4 of 6 from the 3-point line, while the rest of the Oklahoma City lineup shot 27 percent (10 of 37).

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. Both are L.A. -area natives.

Amick reported that the Los Angeles Lakers are the biggest threat to sign with George, with the veteran forward being a California native.

Oklahoma City coach Billy Donovan was pleased with the defense against Golden State, especially the way the players communicated and helped each other out.

For the night, the Lakers racked up 58 points in the lane, while also knocking down 10 three-pointers and scoring after offensive rebounds to the tune of 21 second chance points.

Brandon Ingram added 19 points, Julius Randle scored 17 and Kyle Kuzma had 16 for the Lakers, who won their fourth straight.

"Just trying to play the game the right way". He would make just six of his next 20 shots.

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.
