Bucks officials confirmed that fourth-year center Larry Sanders has started his five-game suspension for violating the league's drug policy. Sanders was not with the Bucks for their Wednesday game against Indiana and could not be at the arena, per NBA policy. Sanders was suspended for a third positive marijuana test. He was out due to surgery for right orbital fractures and it was uncertain when his suspension would begin. But this means the 6-foot-11 Sanders will not have to start next season with a suspension.

Neither the Charlotte Bobcats nor shooting guard Gary Neal discussed specifics on why Neal was held out of Wednesday’s 98-85 victory over the Washington Wizards. But it was behavioral, rather than medical, and Neal said he made amends. “I made a mistake,” Neal told the Observer post-game. ‘Me and coach talked about it and we’ll move forward from there.” Coach Steve Clifford called this an “internal team matter.” He said it was over after the game and Neal’s minutes won’t be affected when the Bobcats play the Minnesota Timberwolves at home Friday.
