Jaw Knocks Lou Williams Out 8 Weeks

This doesn’t sound like it was a lot of fun for Lou to go through. The image he posted online following the procedure certainly confirms that: “76ers point guard Lou Williams underwent surgery Thursday morning to wire together his upper and lower jaws. Williams will miss eight weeks. Early in the first quarter of Tuesday night’s loss to the Washington Wizards, Williams suffered the injury in a collision with Washington forward Antawn Jamison … After a sleepless, painful night in Boston, an X-ray taken of Williams’ jaw initially revealed that fracture. ‘What I wanted was something to numb the pain, something to help with the pain and continue to fight through,’ Williams said of approaching the trainers on Wednesday morning. ‘But you go through the protocol, the X-rays and this and that. And it came back, and there was a big line in my jaw, and that set the alarms off right there.”’

    @James – I guess everyone’s been gorging on turkey and are now busy shopping…

    Can’t wait to see JRue (the Damaja!) get some burn.

    Nasty injury. Hopefully Jrue is gonna be steppin up now, he ended up havin a fairly rough night against Cs but not exactly best team to have your first start against. im prayin he rips it up too and keeps the 1, lou cant run a team unfortunately, hes born to be a jason terry/ ben gordon 6th man super scorer

    It would be smart to get back “The Answer”.

    I think taking AI now is a no brainer. AI met with the sixers earlier today in Dallas. This is an open starting spot that doesn’t ‘impair any players development’ – in a city that AI loves. Seems like exactly what a team and AI needed to bring him out of ‘retirement’.
