Lou Williams Must Quarantine for 10 Days After Strip Club Visit

A Los Angeles Clippers player with Georgia roots has been placed in 10-day quarantine after leaving the NBA's coronavirus "bubble" and visiting an Atlanta strip club.

It reportedly ended around 6 p.m. and he was later seen on Instagram stories at Magic City, a strip club in Atlanta. The Clippers face the Los Angeles Lakers on July 30 and the New Orleans Pelicans on August 1.

Williams' act was seen as a breach of good faith with Clippers head coach Doc Rivers saying that they did not like seeing the picture. Williams maintained that no entertainers were present and that he went there for dinner after attending the viewing for the father of a close friend. "I was just reminiscing cuz I miss him".

The league on Sunday announced Williams must quarantine for 10 days as a result of his roaming, meaning he misses the Clippers' first two games of the restart.

Now, the National Basketball Association is investigating the incident, and if Williams is found to have violated quarantine rules, his quarantine time will be expanded. He's back here. I can tell you that much. There's a four-day minimum quarantine for anyone who leaves the bubble, but that total could be increased to two weeks depending on circumstance.

The LA Clippers guard was excused from the NBA's "bubble" in Walt Disney World to go to a funeral.

With Montrezl Harrell and Patrick Beverley also having left the bubble for personal reasons and now Williams gone for an extended absence, they'll be short-handed for the foreseeable future as well. "You got a guy that's a rookie in Zion Williamson who left for a family issue and he handled it way better than Lou".

Meanwhile, centre Ivica Zubac (undisclosed) and guard Landry Shamet (recovered from COVID-19) are rejoining the team.
