The Bucks could again be without Larry Sanders for an extended period of time, as he suffered a fractured right orbital bone Saturday against Houston.

Less than two hours before Monday’s tip-off, the Bucks released news that Larry Sanders is out indefinitely with a fractured right orbital bone. He suffered the injury during Saturday’s loss to Houston when he caught an inadvertent elbow from the Rockets’ James Harden in the first quarter. Sanders did not return to the game but was optimistic that he suffered only a bruise and was initially considered questionable for Monday’s contest. The team has not yet announced whether Sanders will need surgery, and a clearer return estimate is expected following a visit to a specialist on Tuesday.

Zaza Pachulia will get the start at center in Sanders’ place against Boston,
