The NBA has suspended the Bucks' Larry Sanders for at least ten games for violating the league's Anti-Drug Program. Sanders hasn't played since December 23rd and has spent time away from the team as Sanders dealt with a personal issue.The league says Sanders' current suspension \"will continue until he is in full compliance with his treatment program.\" Sanders will start serving the suspension when Bucks play the Toronto Raptors Monday night.
The Bucks released this short statement about Sanders suspension Friday: “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 was also suspended for five games last season after testing positive for marijuana. He also injured his thumb in a bar fight in downtown Milwaukee near the start of the 2013-14 season.
