The Los Angeles Clippers are going to be without high-scoring sixth man Lou Williams for up to three weeks with a hamstring injury, coach Doc Rivers told reporters on Tuesday.

Williams left Monday's game in Phoenix in the second quarter with what the team said was a sore left hamstring.

Rivers said he was told that Williams' injury was not "bad" and that he could miss two to three weeks.
