NBA suspends Larry Sanders of Milwaukee Bucks for drug violation

Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse for the Milwaukee Bucks, they do.

According to a variety of sources, talented though volatile forward Larry Sanders has been suspended by the NBA for violating terms of the league’s drug policy.

Per HoopsRumors:

The NBA has suspended Bucks center Larry Sanders for five games for violating the terms of the league’s anti-drug program, the league announced.

Sanders becomes the second drug related suspension this week as Arnett Moultrie of the Philadelphia 76ers (currently playing in the NBA’s D-League) was suspended as well.

The NBA did not give any specifics as to what Sanders was suspended for, though judging by the time frame and the NBA rules, it’s likely marijuana related.

Sanders is currently out for the season, so any suspension will be moved towards next season when he is eligible to return.

Barring any other offseason trouble, Sanders will miss the first five games of the Milwaukee Bucks 2014-15 season – assuming he’s still on the roster at that point.
