Bucks Injury Update: Larry Sanders practiced with summer league team

By on 7/10/2014 03:15:00 PM

The Milwaukee Bucks had a dreadful 2013-2014 season in which they won an NBA worse 15 games. They were 28th in the NBA in points scored and 25th in points allowed. The Bucks drafted Jabari Parker out of Duke with the second overall selection in the NBA draft. Anxious to see Parker and other young players in the Summer League, including Larry Sanders, who missed much of last season due to injury. The good news is that Sanders practiced with the team yesterday and should see game action in the near future

I reported on March 21 that it was confirmed that Sanders would miss the rest of the season. He had surgery to repair right orbital fractures suffered during the Bucks game against the Rockets on February 8.  Sanders said he would focus his efforts on getting better to help the Bucks get back to respectability in the future.

Sanders ended a nightmarish 2013-2014 season averaging 7.7 points and 7.2 rebounds per game.  Although he was unable to play much, Sanders feels he learned a few things from his ordeals this season.

CF Gardner, who covers the Bucks for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, tweeted the following update on Sanders.
There is no word of yet as to when Sanders will be ready for game action, but practicing with the team is a step in the right direction. I would expect Sanders to be available for game action before too long, consider him day-to-day at this time.

Sanders, a four-year NBA veteran out of Virginia Commonwealth, averaged a career high 9.8 points on 50.6 percent shooting and 9.5 rebounds per game in 2012-2013. In 206 career games, Sanders is averaging 6.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game.
