Dalembert not in starting lineup

Dalembert out of starting lineup

Dalembert not in starting lineup


Sixers center Sam Dalembert, who has started every one of the Sixers 61 games this season, was not in the starting lineup for the team today when they played the Toronto Raptors at Air Canada Centre. Sixers public relations director Mike Preston informed the media this morning that Dalembert wasn't starting due to "disciplinary reasons."

Toronto All-Star forward Chris Bosh was in the starting lineup for the Raptors after missing the last seven games. Bosh was set to return Friday night after missing six games due to an ankle injury, then came down with a stomach virus on Friday. Raptor coach Jay Triano said Bosh will play as much as he's able.
