Sweet Lou out 8 weeks

76ers point guard Lou Williams saw the doctors today in Philadelphia and then immediately underwent jaw surgery, where he had his upper and lower jaw wired together. Williams will be out 8 weeks.

In the coming days, he will consult with a nutrionist about a liquid diet to help him maintain his weight.

Williams broke the jaw early in the first quarter of the Sixers loss to the Washington Wizards on Tuesday night. With the injury, he scored 26 points.
