Larry Sanders ruled out with fractured eye socket

Published Add your comment

Larry Sanders will miss the Milwaukee Bucks’ next few games and remain sidelined through the All-Star break after fracturing his left eye socket.

The 25-year-old suffered the injury early in the fixture between the Bucks and Houston Rockets last Saturday - and is officially listed out indefinitely.

However, reports claim that Sanders should be available for selection following All-Star Weekend.

The center, who was caught by an inadvertent elbow from James Harden and forced to leave the BMO Harris Bradley Center court, posted a selfie on Instagram to show the extent of his injury.

The photo shows significant bruising just underneath the left eye, which he is unable to open fully.

This is not the first time the Bucks’ star has been sidelined with an injury this season; earlier in the campaign he missed a string of fixtures because of a torn thumb ligament.

From 23 matches, Sanders has averaged 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks this season.
