In Friday’s preseason game at Brooklyn against the Nets, 76ers coach Doug Collins said that he will be giving Evan Turner the night off.

Collins has been giving his regulars a game off and said it’s likely Jrue Holiday will get one of the last two preseason games off.

Kwame Brown, who missed Wednesday’s 113-99 preseason win over the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers with a left calf strain, won’ t play Friday.

Collins did say he would like to play Brown Sunday in Boston and Monday in Syracuse against the New York Knicks if possible.

“We have to be prepared if Andrew (Bynum) is not ready to go and we will need a bigger body,” Collins said about Brown.

In addition, Jason Richardson, who got the night off against Cleveland as he was battling some tendonitis, will play on Friday.


 

The 76ers waived center Dan Gadzuric early Friday evening. He did not appear in any preseason games. There are now 15 players on the team's roster.
