Lou Williams Pictured At Strip Club Ahead Of NBA Restart
Lou Williams, what were you thinking?
The LA Clippers guard will have to spend the next 10 days in quarantine after being pictured at a strip club just days before the NBA restart.
It's understood Williams had been granted leave from the safeguarded bubble of Walt Disney World in Orlando to attend a family emergency in Atlanta.
Now, though, it appears the 33-year-old made a cheeky pit stop before returning back to Florida.

Photos have emerged online of the Clippers star wearing an NBA-issued face mask while attending the Magic City strip club with U.S. rapper Jack Harlow.
"Those (images) got out and that's something that we obviously didn't enjoy seeing or like," Clippers coach Doc Rivers said.
As a result of his actions, the NBA slapped Williams with a 10-day compulsory quarantine period - meaning he'll miss the Clippers' opening games against the Lakers, Pelicans and Suns.
This isn't the first time an NBA player has been caught breaching the strict COVID-19 rules in Orlando, though.
Sacramento Kings ace Richaun Holmes became the first big-name star to land himself in hot water when he decided to leave the 'bubble' to pick up a fast food delivery.
Since then, the 'snitch hotline' has been blowing up with calls regarding potential rule violations - the likes of Jimmy Butler and Dwight Howard becoming the controversial technology's latest victims.
And now with Williams joining a bunch of other players on the Disney World sidelines, it's clear the NBA's no-nonsense monitoring of mask, quarantine and distancing rules is paying off in ensuring the revamped season goes ahead smoothly.
