Life without Larry Sanders hasn't been particularly pleasant for the Milwaukee Bucks, who limped into the all-star break having lost three of four with Sanders (lower back contusion) in street clothes. Thankfully, the Bucks' most valuable player (kind of weird to say it out loud, right?) figures to be back sooner rather than later.

Charles Gardner reports that Sanders was sounding optimistic after the Bucks' practice earlier today.
"I wouldn't guarantee it but I'd probably say a 70-30 chance," Sanders said of playing Tuesday.
Sanders said he benefited greatly from the break and came to the Bucks' facility for treatment and was able to work on some shots while continuing to recuperate.
