Lou Williams Out With A Broken Jaw

76ers point guard Lou Williams was sidelined for last night’s game against the Celtics after an X-ray revealed a fractured jaw.

Williams was hurt Tuesday when he took an elbow during a 108-107 loss to the Washington Wizards, the Sixers said. The 23-year-old guard played 39 minutes, scored 26 points and showed no signs of injury – during or after the game.

Although Williams did not suit up last night, the Sixers had not set an official timetable for his return. He missed only his fourth game since the 2006-07 season.

In place of Williams, Sixers coach Eddie Jordan started rookie Jrue Holiday. For the season, Williams was averaging 17.4 points and 5.1 assists per game.
