Sixers coach Eddie Jordan decided against starting guard Lou Williams tonight in Washington. Williams was playing in his second game since returning from a broken jaw that kept him out 12 games. Willie Green kept his starting role, alongside rookie Jrue Holiday.

Holiday was on the bench to begin the second half, however, and Williams was out there with the starters. Holiday was one of the last players to come out of the locker room at the half, after posting four points, three assists and three rebounds in 15 minutes of play in the first half.
