Paul George was asked how he handles when fans/media react (or overreact) to any comments that might hint at his future. "It doesn't get to me... I'm happy."

Royce Young ESPN Staff Writer 

Steven Adams (calf) sat out practice today and Billy Donovan says it's unlikely he'll play tomorrow against Chicago. Carmelo Anthony did a little practice, and might be available against the Bulls.
