Do scientists know what the consequences will be if Pluto hits Uranus or Neptune, and when will it happen?

Pluto and Neptune's orbit overlap, so theoretically, it is possible. But, according to NASA, 'Probably not...at least not for the next 750 million years or so. Using a special-made computer called a 'Digital Orrery' the celestial mechanics of the solar system were simulated at 40 day intervals over the next billion years or so.'
