Pair of 76ers' starters out against Boston

Pair of 76ers' starters out against BostonBOSTON (AP) - Philadelphia guard Louis Williams will miss Wednesday's game against Boston with a fractured jaw.

Williams was hurt in Tuesday night's loss against Washington and the team is uncertain when he'll be back in the lineup.

"He's going to be evaluated extensively (Thursday)," coach Eddie Jordan said before his team's game against Boston. "That's when we'll have a better indication of his timetable."

Williams, in his fourth season, has been one of the team's better players during the 5-9 start. He's averaged 17.4 points and 5.1 assists.

"He's been a team leader. He's been terrific for us," Jordan said.

Williams, who was elbowed in the jaw, missed a potential game-winning 3-pointer that rimmed out in the 108-107 loss.

X-rays taken earlier Wednesday revealed the fracture.

Rookie Jrue Holiday is expected to replace Williams in the starting lineup.

The 76ers will also be without another starter for their game against the Celtics. Forward Elton Brand is sidelined with a sore right hamstring.

"Another day or two," Jordan said.
