Milwaukee Bucks center Larry Sanders is out indefinitely with a fractured right orbital bone suffered Saturday night against Houston. It's the latest in a series of blows this season for the 6-foot-11 Sanders, who signed a four-year, $44 million contract extension in the off-season. Sanders suffered his latest injury while contesting for a rebound in the first quarter when he inadvertently was elbowed by Rockets guard James Harden. "It's really unfortunate because the kid had been playing well," Bucks coach Larry Drew said of Sanders. "He was starting to play with a rhythm and had played two of his better games this year."

Q: Is there any chance the Mavs can get their hands on Larry Sanders? I know it is a gamble but maybe it's worth it. I guess a package of one or two expiring contracts and 2 or 3 second round picks is not enough or what is your opinion? Eddie Sefko: From what I'm hearing, the Bucks don't want to deal Larry Sanders because they know they'd be selling low. And I don't believe the Mavericks are infatuated with the troubled big man. Plus, is he going to come in and take minutes away from Dalembert or Blair or Wright? Probably so. And that might be a complicated mix to to make happen. If it required a transition period (read: unexpected losses), it's not worth it. Dallas Morning News

Gary Neal and Larry Sanders in big argument in Bucks locker room after game. Was going on as reporters entered. The latest lopsided loss for the Milwaukee Bucks resulted in a bitter locker room argument between teammates Larry Sanders and Gary Neal. The two were arguing after reporters were allowed in the locker room following the Bucks' 116-100 loss to the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night at the US Airways Center. Reporters were asked by players to leave but the argument continued and Neal left shouting, "I earned my money. Why don't you try it?" Sanders earlier could be heard questioning Neal's attitude. But Sanders said he would not comment about the argument and said simply, "I had a bad game." Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
