Larry Sanders PF/C MIL 2 Months

Jason Kidd believes that Larry Sanders can return to form following a disastrous 2013-14 campaign.

"Yeah [I think he can bounce back]," Kidd said. "I think it starts with being healthy. Two, he's here working out. When you look at that and being gone for five months, he's here with his teammates. That's the start." Saunders signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension last year after an impressive season in which he established himself as an elite rim protector. However, he followed his breakout season with an injury plagued 2013-14 campaign in which he received a suspension for violating the NBA's anti-drug program and only made it through 23 contests. Sanders probably made a lot of people's "never-again lists" last season, but if he's able to keep his act together, he could be a decent value pick going into next season.

Larry Sanders said that his surgically-repaired thumb and orbital bone both feel "great" and he's been fully cleared for basketball activities.

"I feel good, I feel rested," said Sanders, who has been practicing with the Bucks in recent days. He added that he's having a "great time" with Jason Kidd and the new coaching staff, and it's nice to finally see him healthy after a dreadful 2013-14 season in which he missed 59 games.

Larry Sanders went through practice with the Bucks' summer league team on Wednesday.

He reportedly looked great while out there with the young guys. It's been a long, long time since there was anything positive associated with Sanders, which has led to tremendous trade speculation. The Bucks signed him to a four-year, $44 million deal last summer, so that isn't exactly going swimmingly to this point. He'll look to rebound from a catastrophic 2013-14.

The Kings have some interest in acquiring Larry Sanders or Brandon Knight for their eighth pick in the 2014 draft, according to Chad Ford of

Obviously this is just a rumor, but it would be wise for the Bucks to take a page out of the Sixers' book from last year and deal a starter. Jrue Holiday, a better player than Knight or Sanders, was dealt for the sixth pick in the 2013 draft and the 10th pick this year. The Kings do need a guy to protect the rim to take some pressure off DeMarcus Cousins' fouling issue and Sanders' value is awfully low after a horrific 2013-14. Additionally, news came out this week that Larry Sanders punched Mike Dunleavy back in 2012-13, according to the Journal Times.

Larry Sanders could be a potential target of the Dallas Mavericks this offseason, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Sanders had a forgettable 2013-14 season that included an off-court incident and a five-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy, but is still only 25 years old and one season removed from his breakout year. The Mavericks have been searching for a starting center since Tyson Chandler's departure, so this move makes a lot of sense on the surface and could help get Sanders back on track.

Larry Sanders' five-game suspension will start on Wednesday night and end on the season finale.

This is rare good news for the Bucks and they'll have their center to start the 2014-15 season, assuming he doesn't do anything else in the offseason. It's not quite clear how the Bucks were able to pull this off because Sanders was expected to miss the rest of the season with his eye injury. After a horrific 2013-14, we're not going to be excited about drafting him next year.

Larry Sanders has been suspended by the NBA for five games for violating the league's anti-drug program.

Sanders admitted his violation came for smoking marijuana. It's been that kind of season for Sanders. He suffered a serious thumb injury in a bar fight, missed an odd amount of time for an illness, broke his orbital bone to end his season, and now this. The Bucks have pulled off the trifecta for horrible offseason moves with Sanders, O.J. Mayo (ankle) and Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) with all three players turning into massive disappointments. He'll be suspended for the first five games of the year, assuming something else doesn't happen to him.

Larry Sanders (fractured hand) confirmed that he will not return this season.

Sanders is traveling with the Bucks but he's targeting mid-April to begin light activity. Zaza Pachulia will continue to start at center for the woeful Bucks, with John Henson starting at PF during any games Ersan Ilyasova (ankle) sits out, but neither Pachulia nor Henson have helped owners in standard nine-cat leagues over the past two weeks.

Larry Sanders (fractured orbital bone) is unlikely to do any basketball-related activities during his six-week rehab, putting the rest of his season in danger.

Sanders season has gone from bad to worse and the silver lining here is that fantasy owners in re-draft leagues can cut him without compunction. Zaza Pachulia is a nice pickup as the Bucks' starting center, while John Henson (assuming he can stay healthy) also gets a boost with Sanders no longer clogging up the frontcourt rotation.

Larry Sanders will miss a minimum of six weeks after having surgery to repair his fractured orbital bone on Thursday.

Fantasy owners have no choice but to drop Sanders in all formats, as a return in late March would leave him with around a dozen games at most. Zaza Pachulia is a decent pickup despite his lack of blocks, as he'll continue to start at center, while John Henson's value is also solidified with Sanders out of commission.
