Larry Sanders is out indefinitely with a fracture of the orbital bone around his eye, according to numerous reports.

Sanders took an inadvertent shot to the eye from James Harden in Saturday’s Bucks/Rockets game.  Sanders left the game and did not return, then posted a picture of the gruesome black eye on Instagram the next day.

He will miss the Bucks’ game tonight against Boston and Zaza Pachulia is slated to start in his absence.  According to team officials, Sanders will see a specialist for the injury Tuesday.

  1. If Henson can’t play tomorrow, I’m saying it’ll be a big game for Miroslav. Like around 14 and 17 type of game. If Henson plays that won’t happen but that’s my bold prediction.

  2. Hang in there, Larry. Rooting for you to make a big return in good time. Maybe work on that 15-foot jumpshot. God bless.
