76ers guard Lou Williams will miss eight weeks after having surgery on his jaw Thursday morning.

Williams' upper and lower jaw were wired together, said the Sixers. 

Williams broke his jaw in Philadelphia's loss to Washington on Tuesday night. He played the rest of the game and scored 26 points despite the injury.

He was second on the team behind Andre Iguodala with 17.4 points and 5.1 assists per game.

Lou Will's injury opened the door for “Holiday” season to start. Rookie point guard Jrue Holiday started in place of Williams against Boston in a 113-110 loss on Wednesday. He played a career-high 34 minutes in the game but struggled to 4-for-13 shooting while scoring only 10 points and adding six assists.

Holiday should continue to see more playing time as Williams is on the mend.
