Bucks' Larry Sanders suspended for at least 10 games

 Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders has been suspended by the NBA for a minimum of 10 games without pay for once again violating the league's drug policy. The NBA says Sanders will be reinstated when he is in full compliance with his treatment program. Sanders was suspended for 5 games last season after testing positive for marijuana.

The Bucks released a statement about the suspension Friday night, saying “We are disappointed to learn the news of Larry's suspension. We will continue to work with Larry and the league to ensure he has the support he needs.”


Sanders has had other issues off the court. Last season, he was cited for battery and disorderly conduct for his role in a bar fight that left him with an injured thumb. Sanders has not played for the Bucks since December 23 because of what the team has described as \"personal reasons.\"
