Larry Sanders PF/C MIL 7 Days

Sanders has been suspended one game by the NBA for shoving Portland's Nic Batum on Wednesday night, Andrew Gruman of Fox Sports Wisconsin reports. He'll serve the suspension Thursday against Sacramento.

Sanders gave Batum a slight shove on a dunk attempt Wednesday, which caused Batum to slip off the rim and land violently on his side. The push didn't necessarily appear to be malicious, but Sanders' reputation likely doesn't work in his favor, and the league made the call to hand down a one-game ban. With Sanders, Ersan Ilyasova, Jabari Parker and John Henson all out Thursday, and with Giannis Antetokounmpo questionable, Milwaukee will be extremely shorthanded in the frontcourt.

Sanders played in just 13 minutes in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder, scoring six points (2-7 FG, 2-2 FT).

This is the second time in three games that Sanders was held to less than 20 minutes of action. On Tuesday, Sanders didn't do much else in the box score, only grabbing two rebounds and adding on three steals. Zaza Pachulia played 30 minutes off the bench. Sanders has had a disappointing fantasy season, but it's still too early to move on from him in most leagues.

Sanders (illness) played 27 minutes, scoring 10 points (5-7 FG), grabbing nine boards, and blocking two shots.

Although this is not the Larry Sanders that was deserving of first round consideration two years ago, this performance is typical of the Milwaukee big man. Boards and blocks remain his calling card, but the fact that he is capable of putting up decent scoring numbers still gives him high value. Health and minutes are the real factors that contribute to Sanders' overall value in fantasy leagues, so it would be advisable to monitor both moving forward.

Sanders (illness) is considered probable for Sunday's game against the Mavericks, Andrew Gruman of FOX Sports reports.

Sanders was able to play through his illness against the Heat on Friday, so it seems reasonable that he'll be able to do the same Sunday. However, he only spent 18 minutes on the court Sunday and there's a possibility that coach Jason Kidd may limit the center for the second-straight game.

Sanders is dealing with an illness and will not play against the Heat on Friday.

Sanders will be replaced in the starting lineup with Zaza Pachulia. The next opportunity for Sanders to return to the court will be against the Mavericks on Sunday.

Sanders only played 11 minutes Friday in a win over the Pistons, despite the Bucks already missing John Henson and Zaza Pachulia.

Sanders was in foul trouble for most of the game and had a technical, but the minutes limitation was a surprise given the lack of depth at the center position for the Bucks at this time. This was the third time Sanders played in less than 20 minutes in a game he started this season. Friday, he only scored six points and pulled down three rebounds. This inconsistency is about what owners should have expected coming into this season, but the serious limitations on his play could be a problem going forward.

Sanders scored 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 FT) with seven rebounds, five blocks, two assists and a steal in 28 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Timberwolves.

With John Henson (foot) sidelined, Sanders saw a season high in minutes and responded with one of his best performances of the year. If Henson's injury lingers, Sanders could get a chance to thrive despite coach Jason Kidd's rotation-juggling.
