Holiday out for tonight's game

Sixers point guard Jrue Holiday will not play in tonight's Summer League game in Orlando against the Charlotte Bobcats due to a strained left hamstring. Holiday has been tearing it up down here in the three games that he has played.

Also, center Marreese Speights is no longer with the team after playing in the first three games. It was agreed before the league started that Speights would only be staying until yesterday.

It will be interesting to see how rookie Evan Turner will play without Holiday in the backcourt. Turner has struggled mightly down here so far.
