      Lakers' Louis Williams: Not set to return until Tuesday

      Coach Byron Scott said that Williams (personal) isn't expected to rejoin the Lakers until their game Tuesday against the 76ers, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. This means that Williams will be unavailable for a second consecutive game Sunday against the Pacers while he continues to be with his family following the passing of his grandfather. In Saturday's loss to the Trail Blazers, Scott went with a nine-man rotation while Williams was absent, with both D'Angelo Russell and Jordan Clarkson seeing more than 35 minutes in the backcourt. That arrangement figures to hold again Sunday, but usual third-string point guard Marcelo Huertas could also see an expanded role off the bench if the game quickly becomes non-competitive.

      Lakers' Louis Williams: Scores 13 point Wednesday

      Williams scored 13 points (2-8 FG, 0-3 3PM, 9-10 FT) off the bench in Wednesday's loss to the Magic. The reigning Sixth Man of the Year in the Eastern Conference is in his first season with Los Angeles and has assumed a very similar sixth man role that he had in Toronto. Even though Williams isn't starting, he's been the Lakers first option off the bench and still played 29 minutes on Wednesday. Williams is off to a cold start shooting the ball this year (31.8 FG, 19.5 3PM), but is still managing 14.0 points per game mainly because of his ability to get to the free throw line. Williams will likely continue to get a lot of minutes for Lakers and has the ability to score a lot of points on any given night.

      Lakers G Louis Williams provides spark off bench Thursday

      Lakers guard Lou Williams registered 19 points (6-15 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 5-7 FT), two assists, and a rebound in 24 minutes during Thursday's preseason loss to the Raptors. Williams wasn't particularly efficient while dominating the ball Thursday, and he also committed five fouls during his time on the court. That said, he's been able to give the Lakers the scoring spark their looking for off the bench, as he's provided 14 or more points in all three of the team's preseason games. He's been particularly adept at getting to the free-throw line during the exhibition schedule, already racking up 26 attempts while hitting 22 of those shots.
