Sanders, as he's best known for doing, was going up for a block attempt, and came down on Chandler Parsons's foot.
This comes as somewhat of a blow to the Bucks, as far as marketing and morale are concerned. Sanders wasn't expected to make the Team USA cut this year, but having a representative in Vegas on behalf of the franchise was pretty awesome.
As it stands now, it's difficult to imagine that Sanders will play the rest of the mini-camp, which culminates with an official intrasquad scrimmage on Thursday at the Thomas & Mack Center. Select members of this mini-camp will become part of the squad that will represent the country at next year's FIBA Basketball World Cup.
The most depressing part about the injury is that DeMarcus Cousins is now one step closer to prophecy.
There's no reason to surmise that Sanders won't be completely healthy come training camp time, so don't completely go into hiding yet, Milwaukee.
