Clippers guard Lou Williams could be facing an extended stay in National Basketball Association quarantine after his excused absence for personal reasons to return home to Atlanta ended up with pictures of him at a strip club Thursday night.
Williams was pictured in the Magic City strip club in Atlanta on Thursday evening while having a drink and wearing an National Basketball Association mask, according to USA media reports.
Williams was allowed to leave the National Basketball Association bubble at the Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and fly home to Atlanta to visit the wake of a family friend.
Ramona Shelbourne from ESPN reported that Williams was interviewed by National Basketball Association security about his whereabouts while he was away from campus, and accepted he did go to the gentleman's club in Atlanta.
While he initially denied any such "visit", it was later found out that Lou did in fact go to the Atlanta City Magic Club to get some wings.
This will make Williams the first player to miss an National Basketball Association game because of the quarantine.
A picture tweeted by Lou Williams on July 24 confirmed his whereabouts, "Long Live Pops", he captioned in the picture. On his official Twitter account, he tweeted Saturday: "Ask any of my teammates what's my favorite restaurant in Atlanta is".
Although the rapper later deleted the photo and said that it was an old one, Williams had admitted that he did go to the club but only to buy food.
"That became an worn pic of me and Lou". On Saturday (Sunday Philippine time), coach Doc Rivers, appearing visibly annoyed ahead of the Washington game, said: "I can't say much about his trip". I wasn't with him'. "I was just reminiscing cuz I miss him". Ain't nobody partying. Chill out lol.
The restarted season gets back underway on Thursday after a March 11 shutdown for the COVID-19 pandemic.
