Lou Williams will miss 2-4 weeks with broken jaw

When was the last time we got any good news about the Sixers? First, Marreese Speights went down with an injury. Then, the Sixers lost 5 of 6. Now, their leading scorer in their last three games will be out 2-4 weeks.

According to CSN Philly, Lou Williams, who has emerged as a big-time scoring threat recently, will be out 2-4 weeks with a broken jaw. Williams suffered the broken jaw in the Wizards game last night, a game were he scored 26 points and had 5 assists and 4 boards.

Williams only figures to miss a handful of games so this isn't a huge blow. In fact, it could be a good thing for the Sixers because rookie Jrue Holiday figures to get a bump in minutes for the next few weeks. Holiday hasn't gotten much burn this season, averaging 7.6 minutes a game. He has gotten several DNP's this season which is ridiculous for a rookie that needs playing time to develop.

I would really like my next post about the Sixers to have some good news. Let's get a winning streak going!
