Los Angeles Clippers now have three players who have exited 'the bubble' since their arrival earlier this month. Montrezl Harrell & Patrick Beverley left Orlando to attend family emergencies. Now, Lou Williams has exited the campus.
Andrew Greif from the LA Times reported the Clippers guard left 'the NBA bubble' for excused personal reasons but is expected to return soon.
