An MRI exam today confirmed that Lou Williams has a strained right hamstring, suffered in the loss Saturday night at Milwaukee.

According to the Sixers, "the injury will be re-evaluated on a regular basis in order to determine return date," and Williams will be out for "the forseeable future."

The Sixers have five games left in the regular season over the next 11 days before the playoffs begin.

Williams can now be added to Doug Collins’ list of walking wounded as Andre Iguodala continues to struggle with knee tendinitis and Elton Brand continues to feel the effects of injuries to both hands.
