It is believed the player left Northern Ireland without permission to go home to New Zealand last week, missing Sunday's game against Treviso in the process.
He has now returned but has been ruled out of the squad to play the Dragons at Ravenhill.
A statement said: "Nick Williams is unavailable for selection for Friday night's match against Newport Gwent Dragons due to an internal investigation into alleged unauthorised absence.
"Ulster Rugby will make no further comment on the matter at this time."
