Who would've thought that the number one storyline (at least from a Process Truster point of view) in an NBA game would ever be JaKarr Sampson going up against his former team for the first time? Yea, we probably would've. You're right.

The major uncertainty in this plot line, however, has Sampson being listed as questionable for tonight's match-up after being forced out of the Nuggets' last game with a shoulder injury. Joining JaKarr on the questionable list areKenneth Faried, who sat out the last three games for Denver, and Jameer Nelson, who hasn't played since the end of January.

For the Sixers, Nerlens Noel will be out tonight with a right knee contusion. How fun will this game be, right?!?!

It's the Sixers on the road to take on the Nuggets. March Madness has nothing on this.
