Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Milwaukee big man Larry Sanders was ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Cavaliers with a sore thumb reportedly suffered in an off-court incident.
According to the Racine (Wis.) Journal Times, Sanders is being investigated for an alleged bar fight over the weekend. He was not at the arena.
"We are aware of an incident from Saturday evening," the Bucks said in a statement. "The matter is under investigation and Larry Sanders is cooperating fully. At this time we will have no further comment."
Sanders, who inked a $44 million extension with the Bucks over the summer, was unhappy with his playing time in the early stages of the season and voiced his frustrations to coach Larry Drew. The fourth-year player is averaging just 2.7 points, 3.7 rebounds and 17.3 minutes played through three games.
