A pre-game note or two for your beautiful faces:

It's now official that Nerlens Noel will be sidelined with a wrist injury for the second consecutive game. Jerami Grant will take his spot in the frontcourt next to rookie Jahlil Okafor. Joining the starting squad in place of Noel is JaKarr Sampson.

Update: Richaun Holmes will also be inactive tonight. Injury fun for everyone!

Free agent acquisition DeMarre Carroll is questionable for the Raptors with a case of the foot-hurtsies (plantar fasciitis if you're nasty). He missed last night's game against the Knicks. Terrence Ross, fresh off a newly penned contract extension, will be out because of ligament damage to his thumb.

They may not be from Long Beach, but they're certainly from the Norf. Sixers. Raptors. Let's do it.
