A Real Jaw Breaker

Lou Williams is out with a broken jawbone.

A Real Jaw Breaker


Sixers guard Lou Williams, who has averaged 23.6 points on 55.1 percent shooting the past five games, will be lost to the team tonight after it was revealed in an x-ray today that Williams fractured his jaw during last night's 108-107 loss in Washington.

Williams said he got an elbow to the jaw sometime in the first quarter, but continued to play and scored a team-high 26 points. He had the ball in his hands for the last 11.5 seconds of the game, and his game-winning shot from just inside the three-point line fell just short.

Brand hurt his right hamstring in a collision in the third quarter and did not return. He is listed as a game-time decision tonight with a sore and tight hamstring.
