After what seemed to be wild 24 hours, Lou Williams is back in the NBA bubble.

Doc Rivers confirmed in a press conference that Lou Williams was back in Orlando with the rest of the Clippers. When asked about Williams, Rivers said "he's back here, I can tell you that much."

Williams has been the talk of the NBA, as it seems he may have partied with rapper Jack Harlow while outside of the bubble. 

Williams' excused reason for leaving the bubble was to attend a funeral. According to Ramona Shelburne, Williams told NBA security that he did go to the Magic City gentleman's club for a short time on Thursday night.

On Sunday, the NBA announced that Williams will be mandated to undergo a 10-day quarantine, which began Saturday. Williams confirmed to the league that he picked up food in Atlanta while on an excused absence. His quarantine period runs through the team's first two seeding games.

The situation is something head coach Doc Rivers definitely isn't happy with.

"I can't share much with his journey because I wasn't on that journey with him," Rivers said. "Obviously those [photos] got out and that's something we obviously didn't enjoy seeing or liked.”

The Clippers were missing an entire rotation's worth of players during the past two weeks in the bubble. Fortunately for them, they're now starting to get the pieces back. Landry Shamet, Ivica Zubac, and Montrezl Harrell are on their way. Unfortunately for them, there's a chance Lou Williams will have to quarantine during opening night in Disney World.
