We wanted to see more playing time for Jrue Holiday and it looks like we may get just that. Sadly, it's due to the loss of Lou Williams and not Willie Green or Royal Ivey getting their asses super-glued to the bench.
CSNPhilly.com is reporting that Lou Williams will miss 2-4 weeks with a broken jaw. As someone who has broken their jaw in the past and had it wired shut for a month, I can say enjoy those milkshakes, Louis. They are your friend.
UPDATE: Sixers PR man Michael Preston says no time table has been set just yet by the team and Lou will be evaluated tomorrow.
This is obviously another tough blow to the struggling Sixers. Trying to look at the glass half full, maybe Jrue will use the extra PT to help his maturation. Although, Andrew thinks EJ may start Green over Jrue. Jordan doesn't like those kids.
I wonder how he'll communicate with his throngs of fans on UStream now?
