Yi Jianlian suffered an upper lip laceration that required 50 stitches to close when he was hit by an inadvertent elbow thrown by Sean Williams while playing 3-on-3 after practice on Saturday. Yi, who has been out since Nov. 2 with a sprained right knee, will be reevaluated on Monday, Dec. 14. Doctors had to repair a muscle in Yi's lip during surgery.
