Report: Lou Williams under investigation by NBA after picture with Jack Harlow leaks
The NBA is reviewing the behavior of Los Angeles Clippers guard Lou Williams while on an excused absence from the Orlando bubble, and the league is trying to “assess the length of his re-quarantining process” upon returning to Florida, according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
However, a few hours after leaving the bubble, the three-time Sixth Man of the Year was spotted partying with rapper Jack Harlow. Harlow posted a picture alongside Williams, both in masks, and tagged Williams’ Instagram handle.
“A location U would never guess,” the quickly-deleted selfie captioned.

After DJ Matta posted an Instagram story thanking and tagging Harlow for coming to his party at Strip Club Magic City in Atlanta, it was easy to connect the dots.
While Harlow tweeted that the picture was an old one, he quickly deleted the message. “That was an old pic of me and Lou. I was just reminiscing cuz I miss him,” the rapper initially wrote.
As another Twitter user pointed out, Williams seems to be wearing a mask given out to players in the NBA bubble.
