Oklahoma City Thunder say Paul George is untouchable

Russell Westbrook 'I love adversity&apos as Thunder skid hits four

Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook (0) passes to Carmelo Anthony (7) as Los Angeles' Josh Hart (5) defends during an NBA basketball game between the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City, Wednesday, Jan. 17, 2018.

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. That said, he will definitely generate a lot of interest from teams around the league who will all make their best pitches to him to try and land his services.

The Thunder led by as many as nine points in the first quarter, then the Lakers started to heat up, and by the end of the quarter, led 30-27.

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.

"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.

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

"At the end of the season, it's still on my decision on what I need to do for my family", the All-Star forward told Amick.

Walton was so caught up in preparing for the Thunder that he had yet to begin figuring out how Thomas might fit in with the surging young roster. "So, it's just different guys gotta step up, and I think that's why you have a complement of players and guys have an opportunity to fill roles and help our team if those guys are in a position that they can't play".
