The team had not said much about his absence other than it was for personal reasons. That fueled speculation about what's really wrong and that he might even be done with basketball. ''It feels great to be around the guys again,'' Sanders said after his first public appearance with the team in two weeks. ''There is no timetable for my return.'' Sanders was vague, but said he was making progress, getting to the root of his issues and correcting them. ''Without these things being corrected, I don't think basketball will be something I can even do,'' he said. Yahoo! Sports

He said that speculation he might walk off the court for good simply was false. ''But, what is true,'' he said, ''is that I'm in the process of working things out now to do as best for my psyche and my physical health going forward. There's a lot of evaluating going on. There's a lot of inside talk just to put myself in the best place for my health right now.'' Yahoo! Sports
