The Milwaukee Bucks, who begin the 2014-2015 regular season tonight against the Charlotte Hornets, look to improve upon last season's dreadful 15-67 record. With nine players on the roster 23-years of age or younger, the Bucks will look for veteran leadership. One of those veterans, fifth-year center Larry Sanders, is expected to be in the lineup for opening night.

Our own Eric Black reported on October 19 that Sanders had minor surgery and would be out for the remainder of the preseason.  The surgery, although the exact nature wasn't revealed, was said to be a minor outpatient procedure.

Igor Mello of reported that Sanders indicated he's been increasing the intensity of his practice sessions of late and will be ready for tonight's game.

C.F. Gardner, who covers the Bucks for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, also tweeted the following on Sanders.
Sanders, in his fifth NBA season 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.
