The Clippers face the Lakers next Thursday in a game Williams will likely miss regardless of the NBA's determination.

Williams flew home on Thursday to Atlanta to attend a viewing for the death of a family friend.

Williams reportedly told National Basketball Association investigators that he attended a viewing for Paul G. Williams, which ended at around 6pm Thursday, then went to Magic City for dinner. ESPN notes that the photo shows Williams wearing an National Basketball Association mask as he held a drink at the club.

'Obviously those (photos) came out, and that's something we obviously don't like to see and don't like, ' he said.

As for the Clippers, what rankles is the fact that Lou Williams is one of the team's veteran players and should have set an example of being a good role model and not one to first violate protocols which are set for everyone's protection inside the National Basketball Association bubble. When the news began to spread about Williams being at the strip club, Harlow pulled the post from his social media.

But by being in a group of people and potentially exposing himself to coronavirus, the National Basketball Association decided that a longer quarantine was what's required to ensure the safety of those in the bubble.

Coronavirus spread among children in Georgia youth camp, CDC says
The YMCA's Camp High Harbor in Rabun County was forced to shut down after 260 of the tested residents had positive results. While campers began to be sent home that same day, the camp did not officially close until three days later, the CDC said.

Players must serve a minimum four-day absence if they leave the campus and Williams reportedly could be facing a quarantine of 10 to 14 days, depending on the results of the investigation.

Two other players on the team, pivot Montrezl Harrell and point guard Patrick Beverley, have left the campus this week because of family emergencies, and have not returned. The Clippers will also be without Ivica Zubac and Landry Shamet for the restart.

Approaching a full-roster status, the Los Angeles organization is moving towards the seeding matches holding second place in the Western Conference thanks to 44-20 run prior to the long hiatus due to the coronavirus pandemic.

All clubs will play eight games to complete the regular season, then begin the playoffs next month.
