Okafor a game-time decision

PHOENIX -  Jahlil Okafor will be a game-high decision for Saturday night's against the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena.

The 76ers rookie center has a slight right knee injury that doesn't appear to be serious. The team just wants to be cautious on this road trip.

Okafor is the team's leading scorer (17.6 points) and rebounder (7.9).

Nerlens Noel will slide from power forward to center if Okafor is unable to play against the Suns. Jerami Grant would then get the start at power forward.
