NBA officials are investigating Los Angeles Clippers security guards Lou Williams after the photo came to light, which allegedly shows him on Thursday at the Atlanta Street Club, what would be a violation of the rules for a coronavirus balloon in the league.
Williams received a justified absence from the Walt Disney World Resort – where the scrap games recently began and where players are being sequestered – to attend a funeral. However, the NBA is reportedly now reviewing Williams’ nighttime activity to see if he was involved in other high-risk behavior, ESPN reported.
The NBA has its players and other team members in a high-quality quarantine to protect them from the virus as it prepares for the regular season game to resume on July 30 ̵
LAKERS WILL NOT ALLOW THEIR PUBLICLY TO SMOKE THEIR ROAD
Twenty-two of the league’s 30 teams have entered the “bubble”, for which the NBA announced for the first time that July 13 will be a zone without COVID.
Williams could potentially miss the Clippers’ opening game against the Los Angeles Lakers if the NBA finds a player engaged in other illegal activities during his absence from the bubble.
The NBA may choose to add extra time to William’s quarantine by preventing him from playing in the upcoming game.
Rapper Jack Harlow reportedly posted a photo on social media showing himself and Williams at the Atlanta Magic City Gentlemen’s Club on Thursday night. The photo is then deleted.

Harlow initially claimed the post was in an old photo, but Williams confirmed the photo was taken on Thursday, ESPN reported. He told the NBA security that there were no entertainers inside the club at the time of his visit, the report said.
ESPN reporter Bobby Marx said Williams could lose $ 150,000 if he was found to have violated his quarantine.
“After a 10-day quarantine, Lou Williams will miss two seed games and lose up to $ 150,000 in salary. “A four-day quarantine will bring Williams back on the court until the first game on July 30.” Marx tweeted Saturday.
