Carmelo Anthony's night cut short due to sprained right ankle

Anthony played just six minutes in the Thunder's 125-105 win against Golden State on Tuesday after turning his right ankle early into the first quarter.

Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony each missed Thursday night's game against the Lakers at STAPLES Center, and the Thunder were no match for the spry Lakers.

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 12-4 in its last 16 games, including eight in a row at home.

The Lakers were also short-handed, after a trade with Cleveland sent Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance, the Cavaliers, that will eventually bring Isaiah Thomas and Channing Frye, plus the Cavs first round pick in 2018 to the Lakers.

After knocking off the Thunder 108-104 in Oklahoma City on Sunday, the Lakers breezed to a lead as large as 27 points in the fourth quarter.

"I'm pretty sure you guys will know of any decisions that are made".

Paul George had 29 points and nine rebounds for the Thunder, who lost for the fifth time in six games.

Patrick Patterson started the second half in place of Anthony, but OKC coach Billy Donovan said he'll reevaluate his starting five before making a decision for Thursday's contest.
