According to U.S. media reports, National Basketball Association player Lou Williams is being investigated by the league for an alleged visit to a strip club after leaving the Disney World coronavirus bubble to attend a funeral.

Williams was allowed to leave the National Basketball Association bubble at the Disney World in Orlando, Florida, and fly home to Atlanta to visit the wake of a family friend. When they open the restart to the National Basketball Association season Thursday against the Lakers, they don't know if they'll be whole with a 15-man roster.

This will make Williams the first player to miss an National Basketball Association game because of the quarantine.

Sources said Paul Williams is the father of a close family friend.

While he initially denied any such "visit", it was later found out that Lou did in fact go to the Atlanta City Magic Club to get some wings.

When photos of Williams wearing an NBA-issued face mask while with a rapper were posted on social media, it upset Clippers coach Doc Rivers, who has been scrambling to assemble a squad with absent talent.

'Obviously those (photos) came out, and that's something we obviously don't like to see and don't like, ' he said.

Williams has since admitted that he was, indeed, at the strip club on Thursday evening.

Now, the National Basketball Association is investigating the incident, and if Williams is found to have violated quarantine rules, his quarantine time will be expanded.

Williams still got a 10-day quarantine from the National Basketball Association.

As a result, Lou Williams, who is a candidate for the Sixth Man of the Year award, will now be missing the first two seeding games of the Clippers-the first against Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, July 30, and against New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday, August 1.

The Clippers have also excused Patrick Beverley and Montrezl Harrell for family emergencies in the past week.

Meanwhile, centre Ivica Zubac (undisclosed) and guard Landry Shamet (recovered from COVID-19) are rejoining the team.

At 44-20, the Clippers enter the restart second to the Lakers in the Western Conference.
