MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders will be out until at least the All-Star break this weekend with a fractured bone near his eye.
Coach Larry Drew announced before the team's game Monday night against the Boston Celtics that he was told earlier in the day that Sanders was injured when he was elbowed in the right eye by Houston's James Harden as the two went for a rebound early in Saturday night's game. Drew believes the fracture is in the orbital bone, and adds that Sanders is experiencing double vision in the eye.
Sanders missed nearly two months early this season after tearing a thumb ligament in a fight at a Milwaukee night club.
Zaza Pachulia was scheduled to start in Sanders' absence against Boston.
