76ers' Hollis Thompson: Will not play Friday

Thompson (illness) will sit out Friday's preseason finale against the Heat, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.

Thompson is dealing with an upper-respiratory infection and his main priority is getting back to full strength prior to the regular season. By sitting out Friday, he has an additional week off prior to the opener on Oct. 26, which should give him more than enough time to fully recover.
