Williams was excused by the Clippers to attend to a personal matter, the funeral of his grandfather, who died on July 16, according to a post on Williams’ Twitter account.
During his time away from the bubble, he was spotted hanging out at the popular Atlanta gentlemen’s club, Magic City, with rapper Jack Harlow. A post on Harlow’s Instagram page featured Williams and was deleted soon thereafter.
Lou Williams is a Regular At Magic City—For the Wings
Not only was Williams there at Magic City, what’s cooler is that Williams has wings named after him on the menu.
And Williams tweeted on Friday night that he is a longtime fan of the food at Magic City, pointing out he was wearing a mask at the club and saying, “Ask any of my teammates what’s my favorite restaurant in Atlanta is. Ain’t nobody partying. Chill out.”

That caused many to make jokes about the wings like Fox Sports 1’s Shannon Sharpe.

Does the NBA Provide ‘Adult Entertainment’ in the Bubble?
Three to four months in a hotel bubble has pluses and minuses.
ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith warned many as such on ESPN’s First Take. “Do we really think the ‘recreational activities’ that these guys are accustomed to are going to be compromised for three months?” Smith asked.
“I mean, somebody’s gotta say it. You really, really think somebody’s gonna be without their wives or their woman? The guys that are married without their wives, the guys that ain’t married without their woman. You really, really think they’re honoring a bubble for three months?”
One option that popped up is adult entertainment site Cams.com, which says that it will give players, coaches and others a free experience. Players (and coaches) who sign up via firstname.lastname@example.org and verify their identity will be provided with a VIP membership and free tokens to the site which would allow them access to Cams.com’s models.
“If they are ever lonely or need some extra motivation before a big game, all they need to do is use their VIP membership credential to log on to the site and they will have an array of beautiful models at their disposal,” read an email blast from the site a few weeks ago. “They can chat with them in private cam rooms via voice and video text. The models can provide companionship, fun conversation, sexy stripteases and more.”
In the meantime: The Clippers are looking to win an NBA championship.
They currently sit in second place in the NBA’s Western Conference with a 44-20 record.
The coronavirus pandemic halted NBA play on March 11 and the league will resume play on July 30 at Walt Disney World.
In all, 22 NBA teams will compete to fill the league’s 16 playoff spots. The NBA Finals expected to finish no later than October 13.
