Jack Harlow posted an Instagram story, partying with Lou Williams, who recently left the NBA Bubble due to personal reasons.
Lou Williams is the fifth player to leave the Walt Disney facility due to personal reasons for the Los Angeles Clippers. The reason seems to be a bit different as Clippers’ guard was partying with his fellow friends.
Jack Harlow’s deleted Instagram story
Jack Harlow (American Rapper and songwriter) posted an IG story clubbing with Lou Williams, which was deleted quickly. It is likely to believe that the post was deleted as Lou Williams requested the same.
The post was captioned with “A location that you would never guess”.
The revelation comes as a shock to many NBA fans, as Lou Williams cited ‘personal reasons’ to leave the NBA bubble. If he indeed did go partying at a club last night, Adam Silver and co. need to put their foot down and hand out a harsh punishment to the Clippers star.
The NBA has done all it can in order to ensure that the Bubble is coronavirus free and the players will have to respect that.

Fans were also quick to notice that the club Lou Williams went to was ‘Atlantic Club Magic City’.
On returning to the Bubble, Lou will have to quarantine himself for 4 days, provided he tests negative for the coronavirus every day that he is outside of the Bubble.
However, all that could change if on investigation the NBA finds out that he violated the basic rule of being outside the Bubble, which is, not partying the night away.
Where do the Clippers go from here?
Lou Williams is the fifth player to leave the side for personal reasons and is expected to join soon. But he will definitely miss the next two scrimmages that could have given him some more playing minutes under his belt.
Clipper players currently unavailable for scrimmages:
- Ivica Zubac – Unknown
- Montrezl Harrell – Family Emergency
- Patrick Beverley – Emergency
- Landry Shamet – COVID-19
Doc Rivers’ side has not yet practiced with the full roster which can be dangerous in upcoming seeding games from 30 July. They are currently the No. 2 seed team in the Western Conference and are among the front runners for the NBA title.
With a large part of his squad out, Rivers will need to scrape through the seeding games and somehow ensure they keep their 2nd seed intact.
Clippers in their first scrimmage beat Magic (99-90) in a 40-minute match. Lou Williams was the top scorer in the match with 22 points including three rebounds and two assists. The player is in good form but will miss the upcoming games.
