The Bucks have been spiraling in the bottom of the Eastern Conference but will likely get some much needed interior help as Larry Sanders has been cleared and is listed as probable for Friday's game against the Nets.

Sanders has been out since mid-November after injuring his thumb in a nightclub altercation.

The Bucks have fallen to 6-22, which is the worst record in the league, as a rash of injuries have decimated the roster. Sanders is probably Milwaukee's best player and will add much needed size and depth to the interior.

Sanders signed a $44 million extension over the summer but has missed the last month because of a torn ligament in his thumb following an altercation at a nightclub.

Sanders, 25, is averaging 2.7 points and 3.7 rebounds in just three apperances this season.
