Bucks' Larry Sanders out indefinitely with fractured eye socket

By Royce Young | NBA writer

The Bucks will be without Larry Sanders for the next few games as he's sidelined through the All-Star break because of a fractured eye socket.

He's officially listed out indefinitely, but Sanders is expected to return following All-Star Weekend.

The injury happened early in the Bucks game Saturday against the Rockets. With about eight minutes left in the first quarter, he caught an inadvertant elbow from James Harden and was forced to exit the game.

Following it, he tweeted this picture:

Sanders, 25, also missed extended time earlier this season because of a torn thumb ligament. He's averaging 7.7 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 23 games this season.
